A Travellerspoint blog

Thursday 7th January

The box was put into a wheelie bin and off we went back towards Porto on a mission to buy a replacement. After some driving around and a wrong turn onto a toll road, we found a very long roof box we hoped would fit all our stuff in and parted with 130€. An expense that needn’t of been. I suppose lessons are learnt hard and I will be in no rush to drive down small roads with overhanging trees. We headed off back to the coast and stopped in Praia de Mira, a lovely coastal town with a long sandy beach. The sun was out but so was the wind and as we needed to fit the new roof box, we headed down the road to a car park behind some dunes. When we pulled up we also realised the kayaks had shifted on the roof due to the bent bar. So the rest of the day was spent getting everything off and trying to straighten the roof bar. Before fixing everything back up, in cold strong winds! The joy. Still all sorted again now, apart from a lighter wallet and me feeling annoyed with myself.
