Salima had left for Africa on Friday, but everyone else above as well as Sameer and Anaisa were in Figueira for the next few days.
Next, we drove through Leiria and returned home in time to watch the first soccer match of the Euro Cup between Portugal and Turkey on TV (Portugal won 3-0).
At night, we watched our wedding video with everyone and retired.
Then we headed to Serra de Estrla (mountain top), and on the way, had lunch at Museo de Pao (Bread Museum). Museo de Pao is a beautiful restaurant with wood and glass floors, a wooden wagon wheel with water running through and a view to die for. The lunch was a buffet with fish, lamb, varieties of bread, salads, and amazing desserts. We took some fun pictures right outside the restaurant.
After, we headed to the top of the mountain where we walked on foot to some rocks and took pics. On foot, we would run and race each other. That night, we stopped at Kaka´s furniture store before heading home.
Day 3, we had a lazy start. After swimming (yes the house has a swimming pool), we went to Coimbre, where we took pictures, shopped a little and then headed home. After changing, we went to dinner at a hot spot for seafood in Figueira where we ate till we dropped. At the pier after dinner, we went on multiple rides, including bumper cars, and roller coaster. Luckily, even though everyone was stuffed, and the movement was not the best idea, no "incident" occured. Then, we walked to Emanha for gelato's, where Sofia insisted on coffee, while everyone else indulged in fine gelato. I had an "Exotic".
Day 4 in Fig, Tues, Kakush Nawas and Nafeesa drove back to Lisbon. The rest of us walked to a nearby spot for Bica late in the morning. Then we returned home and Kaka, Sameer, Nasser and I played soccer. Nasser hurt his jaw and Kaka scraped his knee, but I twisted my leg and foot, which I would pay for later. Kaka and I won 18-15 against Sameer and Nasser. We then swam in the pool, had strawberries and showered. In the evening, we drove to a nearby restaurant where I had the best Sea Bass (Rubalho). That night, Nasser, Feba and Anaisa drove back to Lisbon. Nasser and Anaisa had to work the next day and we were scheduled to go with them, but plans changed last minute and we decided to go to Porto the next day.
