Flyday Fridays: Óbidos

Hello, hello!

These are some  photos from last year´s early autumn trip in Portugal. We chanced upon this pretty as picture town called Óbidos on the western part just before we headed towards the seaside towns.



It´s quaint but very touristy at the same time. I loved this place, I can´t wait to go back soon. :)


This town is famous for it´s cherry flavored liquor called ¨licor de Ginja¨. A digestive and naturally made alcoholic drink made of sour cherries.


If I´m not mistaken, a Portuguese king once married his child bride on this church centuries ago. They were only 9 and 10 respectively, hahaha!


Remnants of a castle at the top of the town:


Just before leaving the place, we just have to taste the cherry flavored liquor, this town´s famous for:


We had it on a tiny choclate cup which was edible. It tasted like a cherry flavored cough syrup, hahaha! The hubz finished the drink while I finished the chocolate cup. That´s how we roll, lol! :)


After the two-day snow storm, we´re finally ready for some sun and cool weather. I hope the sunny weather continues until next week so that I can take photos outside.

Well, I gotta go. I need to prepare something for my mini-birthday party tomorrow. Keep warm and have a lovely weekend, y´all! :)
