United Kingdom

Great Britain

My first trip to the United Kingdom was in 1971. Leaving a closed country under the heavy dictatorship of Salazar, France and Belgium were a breeze of freedom and development.
From Brussels I made my first flight, to London (1.70 €, not much, even in those old days)

A full week in London was a rich experience,, and the train took me to Dover and the ferry to Ostende, where my friend’s car was waiting to take us back to Portugal, with another stop in Paris and Biarritz, before driving along Spanish northern coast.
