Suncase Porto is a lovely name for a group of enchanting people with a strong desire to explore Porto in March.
Porto's website tells you that from February onwards, the rain is starting to become far more infrequent. Who the hell published this nonsense?
Strong winds and shattered rainfall forced us to switch to plan B and C.
The drink on the terrace of the Casa de Musica was replaced by bubbles and toasts at the lounge bar we set up in their restaurant. Who cared about the terrace?
The Porto GPS tour was still in on Day 01 but the umbrellas didn't stand all tour. All groups did find their way to the hotel however, so no need to send rescue teams for them. A typical Portuguese meal, well accompanied by local wine made everybody forget about the rain and seemed to be the kick off for a further exploration of the hidden secrets of the inner city. Some of them were found others still remain secret...
No ballooning on Day 02, cause too windy. A train guided us along a scenic route through the Douro valley to the Pacheca Estate where we had a blind wine tasting, guided by the master himself and a delicious lunch in the private settings of the family. It all felt so good that as a result most members of the group had sweet dreams on the way back.
No rainfall in the evening though so we decided for a short walk alongside the Douro to the Calém wine lodge. Fully privatized this spot enables you to get the picture of the Port wine perfectly well. An outstanding reception followed by an exquisite dinner did us forget about time. Some hot spots are situated very near by so some members volunteered to give them a try. As to their sayings they succeeded wonderfully well.
No early raise on the third day but a smoothly ongoing to a champagne breakfast near the ocean side. For those of you who never witnessed stormy weather on the shore, this was the perfect spot to enjoy watching from the inside all those exposed to wind and rain.
Old-timers drove us in style to the airport and Brussels Airlines flew us safely back home.
We found out that Suncase Porto had nothing to do with the weather. It all was about the inner feeling for the city, for our soul mates on this trip, and for the discoveries they let us witness. Suncase Porto ... what a lovely name. Our services in this case: Incentives, Teambuilding
