Another great suggestion of a town we need to visit!

Tell Denise she looks great! We'll put Mértola on our itinerary for our next southern trip.

Happy Birthday Denise! Who wouldn't love a festival celebrating honey, bread and cheese? Oh yeah, a vegan.

Happy birthday and no, you don’t look 69, but that’s what the good life does for you! Wishing you many more adventures and thank you Nancy for your wonderful writing. Always a pleasure to read of your adventures and what you learn.

What a great town! Thanks for the peek.

Also, I recently changed Amy's addresses with IMT by sending that same finanças document you reference to them by email. I hope that works for you! You can create an online account with IMT as well and in the process of doing that they ask you for your address. While I'm not 100% certain, it looks like that was enough for them to use our current address for me (why they needed a document from finanças for Amy but not for me is one of those Portuguese mysteries that will never be solved).

Thanks for that note, Scott. We've got to make an address change with IMT as well. I'm glad to know there is an online option.

Glad it is helpful, Mike. I'll be posting the details soon-ish on our blog. If you want them before next week, let me know!

Nanc, I’m just loving all your posts. Really appreciate this one about Mértola. When I was in VRSA last fall I intended to get over there and check out the Gaudiana Valley Natural Park for hiking but ran out of time. So much to see between VRSA and Alcoutim.

Linda and I had hoped to get over there for more exploring this spring but now planning for September - October…

Yay for you, resolving the IMT issue!! Feels so good, and good to know. Add to that your fun post about Mèrtola, this has been one of my favorites of your writings. Now we all have your research and recommendations for our next visit there.
