While in Portugal we went to stay for a night in one of the National Parks, Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês, a beautiful area of the country with plenty of dramatic landscapes, as well as being home to wolves and golden eagles.

We stayed in a hostel for the night near Vilarinho das Furnas, and this was the view from my window – I wish my evening view was like this more often. IMG_0794

There are a lot of dams in Portugal – which explains there high level of renewable energy used in the country. IMG_0826

And behind the dam, a reservoir which covers a former village which was flooded as part of the construction of the dam back in the 1970s.
