Portugal River Cruise

In August of 2022 I embarked on a trip to Portugal on a Viking River Cruise. I would highly recommend Viking for a river cruise. I’ve never tried their ocean cruises, but I like the idea of no kids and no inside rooms, among other things, that are part of the Viking business model, so it could happen!

It all started in 2021, when one of my girlfriends called and asked if I’d like to go to Portugal. After over two years of seclusion because of the Covid pandemic, I was ready to go!

In the links below you’ll find my day-by-day journal of the adventure – and it was an adventure (the good kind)!
