Depois de um bom almoço ainda no Porto, passámos a Ponte D. Luís e - voilá! - chegámos a Vila Nova de Gaia. Existem muitas Caves do Vinho do Porto disponíveis para visita, mas como já nos tinham sugerido o Sandeman, resolvemos experimentar e foi uma óptima escolha!

After a good lunch still in Porto, we crossed the D. Luís Bridge and - voilá! - we arrived at Vila Nova de Gaia. There are many Port Wine Cellars available for visitation, but since Sandeman had already been suggested to us, we decided to try it and it was a very good choice!

Ao terceiro dia, decidimos que já era tempo de rumar a Vila Nova de Gaia e fazer uma prova de Vinho do Porto, mas fomos com muita calma e fizemos algumas paragens pelo caminho.

On the third day, we decided it was about time to go to Vila Nova de Gaia and tast some Port Wine, but we took our time and made a few stops along the way.

A primeira fotografia deste conjunto é das minhas fotografias preferidas de toda a viagem, principalmente porque foi tirada muito à pressa, numa das poucas alturas em que ninguém estava a passar por ali, e até o funcionário do museu acaba por parecer uma escultura lá ao fundo.

The first photo of this set is one of my favourite photos of this trip, especially because it was taken in a hurry, on one of the few times when no one was walking by, and even the museum's employee ends up looking like a sculpture in the background.

Um dos meus momentos mais gloriosos de toda a viagem foi a pequena - pequeníssima! - dança que fiz na bilheteira de Serralves depois de descobrir que, por ser cliente do banco que é o seu principal mecenas, não teria de pagar bilhete. Há alturas na vida em que é imperativo dançar!

One of my finest moments in the whole trip was the little - very little! - dance I've done at the ticket office at Serralves after finding out that, because I'm a client of the bank that's their main patron, I didn't have to pay for the ticket. There are times in life when we just have to dance!

No segundo dia fomos até Serralves e fizemos uma pequena paragem pelo caminho para ver a Casa da Música. Tive muita pena de não ter feito uma visita guiada às salas e outros espaços do edifício, mas como os horários não eram nada convenientes para os planos desse dia, essa visita fica agendada para o futuro.

On the second day we went to Serralves and had a quick stop on the way to see the Casa da Música (= House of Music). I was really sorry for not taking a guided tour of the auditoriums and other spaces in the building, but since the hours weren't so convenient for us, that visit is definitely scheduled for the future.
