In pursuit of a giant wave! Part one. Preparation.

For the first time, about Portugal, as an interesting land for the visit, I heard while studying at the Institute. Then my socketsknik said that he would like to go there, and I asked him "And what is there?". "What are you, there is the ocean. There Mountains. There is Portven. "He answered me. "Ocean, cool" I thought and did not really remember Portugal more.

Much later, digging into the internet came across the picture, where the giant wave went to a small lighthouse … It turned out that it was in Portugal, and then I thought it would be nice to stir the trip there. I wanted live to see gigantic waves that rose from oceanic depths and cause crushing blows on coastal rocks near the small Portuguese village of Nazare. The Internet told me that in the storm season, which comes from December-January, the height of wave-giggles can reach unimaginable 30 meters, and even above. How to miss? Must go. But, multiple "But" ..

After some time, I saw another random picture with a mysterious and charming beach under the mountain. It was Benagil Beach, which is located between the coastal towns of Armachao de Pera and Lagos. And yes, he, too, in Portugal … It became the last and decisive drop that fell on the scale of the scales "to be or not to be". Travel to be!

That’s how an incredible adventure was born to the edge of the world due to the fact that someone said something, yes pairs of pictures from the Internet 🙂

And how do you plan your trip?

Already later, working on the route, we decided to visit the distant Azores, which are in the Atlantic Ocean between Europe and America.
The route turned out to be saturated, with a visit to 5 countries: Finland, Germany, Portugal, Italy and Estonia. 4 European capitals: Helsinki, Berlin, Lisbon, Tallinn. And many other cities and villages: Faro, Armachao de Pera, Albufeira, Lisbon, Ponta Delgada, Ribera Grande, Satadesh, Nazare, Sintra, Bergamo. As many as 6 flights, two of which are one day from different airports. And all this in two weeks ..
