As I’m currently away from home (and will be for the next three weeks) I’m using the opportunity of my absence from the Streets of Nuremberg to dig into my archives and revisit some of the places I’ve visited the last couple of years. As I have all my photos on a portable Hard Drive with me (one copy that is, I have various back-ups) I even enjoy going through my old files, something don’t get to do as much when home and in my daily treadmill.
This is from a trip to Lisbon in 2013. We did a day trip by public bus to Sintra and then on to Cabo da Roca, the western most point of continental Europe. It is located 42 kilometers west of Lisbon in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park and lays on a rock 140 meters above the Atlantic Ocean. Although not as famous as Europe’s northern most tip at the North Cape, Cape Horn or the Cape of Good Hope it is definitely on of the prettiest of all continental capes. You really feel your are right on the edge of the earth, were it all ends. When you stand there and take in the sights and sounds of this cape and the infinite see beyond you get kind of an understanding for our forefathers who thought Earth was a disc that ends behind the great Oceans.
If you ever travel to Lisbon (more of this city in a future post) make sure you drive out to this magic place.
Have a great day!
