Typically for me at the start of a Squares month I am away from home for a few days, which means access to the internet is going to be sporadic. So apologies now if it is a while before your #timesquare pingbacks appear. They will eventually I promise! In the meanwhile can you guess where I am heading to today?


I will be arriving at this very station around lunchtime. I can’t wait! Not only am I looking forward to seeing one of my best friends, but this city is wonderful.  Uncertain where I am going, then keep reading!

I am catching a train to Portugal’s second largest city, Porto, and specifically heading for Estação Ferroviária de São Bento. Hopefully in a few hours I will be coming out of that tunnel you can see, and then walking into the marvellous vestibule of this 19th century railway station. To enjoy more pictures do take a moment to visit my Portuguese blog.

  1. Happy travels 😀
    Perhaps if you continue the square challenge into another year you might think of changing the months so that they don’t coincide with your busy periods – say April July and October next year and then January, April, July and October the following one. If you keep it going of course. It is a lot of work!!

  2. I am so envious! I wanted to see those Azulejos, because as I can’t walk far now, it wasn’t do-able…. I need to get there by train, I guess


    1. It’s one of the best examples of Azulejos we’ve seen as they’re in such excellent condition. Hand painted all of them!
