All right, already.

I have seen more convents, cathedrals and castles than I can now distinguish. Germany and Portugal have so many castles between them that in my mind’s eye they all look alike; as I review the photos, I can’t tell which one is where without cross-referencing the date on my itinerary.

While the German castles on the Rhine were built by robber-barons, many of the Portuguese castles were built by the mysterious Knight Templar monks, such as the ruins of the castle at Constançia, or the castle ruins at Monsanto.

And I’m over them.

Goodbye Portugal. Hello, Italy!
