Monica and I have been planning a dream trip for years with our good friends from Moncon, Maneau and Jake. We will be heading to the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) for a five-stop round trip starting from Madrid airport in central Spain to Seville in the south for the first stop, west to Ferragudo on the beaches of southern Portugal, north to Lisbon then further north to Porto, and finally east to Madrid for the last stop.
We know there will be lots of walking and LOTS of hills, especially in Lisbon and Porto. To get ready this summer, Mon and I started hiking the various trails of the beautiful Fundy Trail Parkway at St. Martins, NB. These views would rival any natural wonder in the world! And we got really good and sometimes strenuous exercise. Are we ready? Gulp, I hope so.
