We are going along to Galicia, hope to drop down to the Duro before the Silver above Lisbon, but nothing cast in stone.
Might even get to Gib

Try to fill up with fuel before crossing into Portugal as there is talk of another tanker drivers strike in about two weeks.As soon as a firm date is announced I will post it on here. In the meantime have a great trip and please bring some better weather.

The one at Poava near Nisa and Castel de Vid has a proper aire with facilities.
Hope it still exists but on CC it is still there

When they brought the land of the owners they only got what land they needed there should be markers what is owned by the owner our sister in law owns land that her parents sold of to build barragems she now lets the land out for grazing. she was ok with vans parking up there once until she found all the rubbish that was left there when they moved of,

The barragem at Nisa is certainly still open have been there three times this year last time about three weeks ago,my only objection is the amount of crap and rubbish that gets left.

Seems such a shame and most certainly altered from when we have been there.
We have spent many weeks at Poava over a few years and never seen any rubbish
OK the toilets were dirty but that was all

We were in Ampudia in February, not going back to Spain / Portugal till later this year or maybe just after the new year, then driving through France, visiting Avila ( Mrs S spent her formative years there ) Madrid and then further down, maybe the Algarve or whatever takes our fancy.
