There’s also a restaurant where you can eat and relax and have a nice view at the same time. you can really stay there if you wanted some more time to enjoy more of this incredible seaside view.

Cascais, Portugal

They have said that this Mouth form of rocks is the result of erosion of weak parts of rocks mostly in the middle area, but for me, this is just another Gods wonderful creation.

I didn’t do anything once we arrived at the place I’m so overwhelmed and just non stop taking photos all over.

Road to Castle of the Moors and Pena National Palace

Road to Penang Palace
Our next stop normally are The Castle of the Moors and Pena National Palace but unfortunately, it turned out to be a big dilemma to us causing to postponed the tour and just go eat lunch instead.

The road going to those two most popular tourist spots are really complicated, it has spiral roads from the start to the end. I was in trouble cause I have this problem with my head aching because of the spiral roads.

When we where on the top suddenly it became foggy all of a sudden and started raining hard a never-ending rain, we waited for almost 20 minutes.

However the weather didn’t change so it was the time to change plans, my stomach was calling and searching for food. So we went to this restaurant near the Palace of Sintra, even after lunch the weather wasn’t favorable

Cape Roca, Sintra

A 20 minutes drive away from Sintra is the west coast of Portugal where you can see eventually the wildest waves on earth.

It’s known as one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and there the famous Cabo da Roca or Cape Roca specifically in Cascais-Sintra Natural Park. Surprisingly it was all of a sudden sunny like summer, the weather was completely different from the other side.

Here are some of my tips when travelling by car

  • Bring water with you and food like Fruits, Crackers or Biscuits
  • Bring your phone charger or camera’s charger if you forget to charge it at the hotel.
  • Bringing umbrella is a must
  • Always bring extra cash or credit cards for the Toll fee (you never know) and of course
  • Bring a map of the city where you going, it’s important to have a soft or hard copy
  • Having your GPS or smartphone with GPS application it’s really important. Gas Station detection is very important to turned on, so anytime you might be almost out of gas you can directly check your GPS.
