I leave tomorrow at 8:00am from Winnipeg and arrive in Lisbon on Wednesday. It shouldn't take that long to get from Winnipeg to Lisbon but I have an 8 hour layover in Toronto and then another 5 hour layover from Frankfurt to Lisbon. So all together I will spend more than half a day sitting in an airport.
I think I'll have to have a lot of faith on this trip because SATA Airlines is supposed to go on strike on May 2, 3, and 4. May 3 is the day we're travelling from Lisbon to Ponta Delgada. We are being accompanied by a Catholic priest and most of the people on the trip are Catholics so they'd better be saying a lot of prayers.
In any event, I am going to make the best of the trip - whether I spend the first week in Lisbon or I get to go to the Azores.
Here are some links to the places I'll be visiting:
- Ponta Delgada
- Ribeira Grande
- Santiago de Compostela (Spain)
