First few days in Portugal

We’ve arrived in Lisbon and have learned that Thrifty Car rental does not maintain a booth in the airport. Took an hour to find a guy walking around with a Thrifty sign.

Once we got our car we drove an hour north to Obidos where we checked into our pousada, which was a castle up on a hill inside a walled city.

On Monday we first visited Alcobaca to see an impressive monastery. Next we visited Batalha to see another monastery — both UNESCO world heritage sites.

Lastly we drove to the coast to see the beaches of Nazare and the overlooking town of Sitio before returning to our castle in Obidos for our last night as king and queen.
