Quad in Bussaco Imprimir e-mail

Quad + Mud = FUN !

This Saturday the weather was fair and the paths were excellent for quad fun .

Victor, Frederic and Ana were picked up at the hotel and went on a fun tour near Penacova.

Through rural and mountain pathways, the tour was fantastic, with plenty of mud and lots of small creeks to cross.

The Hot Chocolat at the Windmill's Cafe tasted great...
