De volta ao Rio Lima! Apesar do menor caudal, a diversão esteve presente. A visita a Ponte de Lima, a vila mais antiga de Portugal, é sempre um prazer, principalmente quando somos brindados com um dia tão perfeito. No fim da actividade, como não poderia deixar de ser, o deleite com o típico Sarrabulho finalizou um grande dia! Muito bom…(fotos)
Hey my name is Marcus Naidu. I’m a Mechanical Engineering student from Vancouver, Canada and currently been doing an internship in Germany for the past year. This was my first time in Europe so I took on this opportunity to travel as much as I can. Last month, in June I came to Porto for a weekend. I fly in on Friday and was going back on Monday. I had 3 days in Porto by myself and I didn’t wanna just see the city and lay on the beach the whole time. So I looked up places where I can rent mountain bikes and try to get out of the city for a day. I don’t remember how but I stumbled upon the Nicho verde website. At first I only asked to rent just the bike but Nuno suggested that I tag along with them to Ponte de Lima where he was taking a kayaking trip. There was a mountain biking track along the river to Ponte da Barca. It was nice to get out of the city and see the real Portugal. But on top of all this the best part was the hospitality of Nuno. He is by far one of the most genuinely friendly person I have met. I got to know alot about Portugal from him and made this day out so much fun. I also got to meet a great bunch people who were doing the kayaking. If you are ever in Porto and want to do something fun and active while at the same time getting to see the real Portugal, I would strongly recommend this to you! And Nuno is you’re ever in Canada, my door is always open to you...
