Driving in Portugal #MurphysDoPortugal

After successfully navigating Ireland with 7 passengers in a minivan in the summer of 2013, we decided to opt for a similar road adventure in Portugal.

One more sleep and we’re off to explore Portugal with the hubs’ parents. Seven glorious days await us as we road trip through the home of custard tarts and port wine.
