A tour to discover cork (in Portugal, not the Irish city)

When we booked the "Algarve jeep safari," they promised a tour to the interior to show there was more to Portugal's southernmost region than beaches, bars and golf courses. We passed through remote villages; stopped off at a couple of out-of-the-way places for a coffee break and lunch; visited a distillery; and finally stopped in a cork oak grove, where Tomás our guide gave an interesting presentation. At home, I usually drink wine in a screwtop bottle. I know there’s a bit of controversy…

  • Hi Marian,

    Fantastic! Thanks so much for your help and guidance.

    I loved Japan when I visited many moons ago as a high school exchange student and was so impressed with the beauty and history of Kyoto.

    I'll be lecturing in Seoul on sustainable tourism. Any information you might be able to share about your destination would be great since I speak often on wellness travel and work with travel agents and travel trade pubs.

    Many thanks for the referral to Maureen - I'll certainly let her know you sent me!
