A 5 minute cab ride had us at Stansted on time. We checked in and did the â€śRyanairâ€ť thing â€“ standing in a long queue then RUSHING to get seats beside together. We managed to find seats together and little more than 2 hours later we touched down safely at
The riverfront was our first destination.
It turns out the Portoâ€™s nightclub district is in a semi-industrial estate â€“ so we were a tad surprised when the cab dropped us of in an area that reminded us all of Osborne Park. We arrived before midnight and the area was deserted except for some roadside food vans â€“ so we ordered a drink and stood about eating â€ścachorroâ€™sâ€ť. From what we could tell they were the localâ€™s spin on hotdogs â€“ but included hair-thin potato chips. Weird but tasty. When the streets filled up we made our way to the clubs, only to be bounced by a â€śmembers onlyâ€ť policy at the first one we went to. We had better luck into the next club, only to learn a lesson about their expensive â€śdrink now, pay laterâ€ť card system. We eventually found a club we liked and partied the night away â€“ getting home at a very respectable 5am in the morning.
