From Santa Cruz to Obidos

Good morning everybody. Finally the day of our first excursion is here. Morning started as usually with a delicious breakfast that gave us energy for this truly exciting day.

Surfers went down to the beach where they had another morning surf session with their instructors. As usual they were shredding the waves and having fun. Session was over and it was time to explore Santa Cruz and have some well deserved free time. Adventures split into two groups, and were off to their first trip. First stop was a medieval town called Obidos. Beautiful old town surrounded by a high wall that used to protect the citizens against intrusions is filled with small houses in various colors is a perfect destination just an hour away from our camp. Campers walked around the town and got to know some interesting facts about history of this place. After exploring the wall with their counsellors, they got to experience this medieval town on their own and check out cute local souvenir shops as well as try some local treats.

Next stop of the trip was Lagoa where our adventures got the chance to try out windsurfing and catamaran sailing. Cloudy but windy Lagoa was perfect for today's activities. Our adventures afternoon was coming to the end and it was time to say goodbye to beautiful and finally sunny Lagoa.

An hour of road trip passed by quickly as almost all of the campers fell asleep and dinner was already waiting for us.

On today's evening program we had Eggstream games. Wonder what this was? Let me explain. Eggstream games is a legendary game where our campers collect points in various games. After that they have to collect different materials according to the points they managed to collect while playing and show their 'eggeniring' skills by building a parachute for their egg. I have to tell you that we had a lot of crazy inventions and a evening full filled with laugh and fun times.

What an amazing day..we visited a beautiful town, did surfing, windsurfing,sailing, played games and have some time to relax and just enjoy our staying here at Village camp Portugal.

It's already late and we are ready to go to sleep because tomorrow will be even more exciting..we are headed to one of the most beautiful capitals in the world Lisbon.

Santa Cruz is saying goodbye for today and until tomorrow.
