Weekly Quotable: Party Time

If you've ever wondered why I sometimes skip over regular post schedules, this is the type of important partying business I'm attending to.

Ynys Lawd [South Stack]

Ynys Lawd is actually the small island on which South Stack Lighthouse was built.
As you can see from these photographs, the location is absolutely breathtaking, and if you are adventurous enough to brave 400 steps up and down a cliff face,  you're in luck!

I am just disappointed that I live way down here, because the most recent issue I could get my hands on, was that of August 2016 - and thanks to the weakness of the South African Rand, I had to pay roughly four times what I would for a local glossy.

As for my thoughts on Ol' Donald...

Except for the images I found (below), I also think you should check out Gail At Large's Foz Do Duoro post if you want to learn more about Portugal. Actually, just follow her blog - she posts regularly, and each post is complimented by beautiful photographs, most of them her own.
