DOURO RIVER, PORTUGAL... RIO DOURO, PORTUGAL...


My daughter Sofia at the bridge Dom Luís I over the River Douro, in Porto, Portugal. The river Douro is one of the major and beautiful river of the Iberian Peninsula, flowing from its source near Duruelo de la Sierra in Soria Province across northern-central Spain and Portugal to its outlet at Porto. It is the third longest river in the Iberian Peninsula after the Tagus and Ebro; its total length is 897 kilometres of which only sections of the Portuguese extension are navigable, by light rivercraft. The river meanders through northern Portugal to the ocean and the fascinating city of Porto. Porto is Portugal's second largest city and one of the most beautiful cities of the Iberian Peninsula.

Minha filha Sofia na ponte Dom Luís I sobre o Rio Douro, no Porto, Portugal. O Rio Douro é um rio que nasce na Espanha na província de Sória, nos picos da Serra de Urbião (Sierra de Urbión), a 2.080 metros de altitude e atravessa o norte de Portugal. A foz do Douro é junto às cidades do Porto, a segunda maior cidade de Portugal e Vila Nova de Gaia. Tem 897 quilômetros de comprimento. Este é o terceiro rio mais extenso da Península Ibérica.

Sofia looks so happy and relaxed and beautiful in this very beautiful place....Once again, I get to see some place I would never get to see, through the eyes of the person who is there, on the spot!
Wonderful Post, Sonia.

What a beautiful place and it's nice to see your daughter. I was in Portugal once back in the 1970s, as a summer vacation when we lived in Holland; I remember very much enjoying it.

Wow, are you traveling with your daughter?? How fun!! This past week at work, I was sitting next to a woman who is going to China in a few weeks with her mom. I thought, what an amazing wonderful trip. It made me want to travel. I love that you posted these photos. I don't think I have ever seen photos of Portugal, ever, in my whole life! Thanks for your comment on my blog, and for checking in to say "hello" from time to time! I always enjoy hearing from you. Hope you are having a nice summer!

Querida Sónia
A Sofia continua a embelezar as pontes portuenses!
Desta podem ver-se as outras que ligam o Porto a Gaia,outra bela cidade!
Agora há barcos turísticos,inclusivé um que é hotel,e onde pode passar a noite,que levam,quem quiser,da foz do Douro até à Régua,cidade vinícola da província de Trás-os-Montes.
Obrigada pela divulgação.
Um beijinho
Beatriz
