After sleeping 3 hours, we left home to catch the train to Porto and then the metro to Sá Carneiro airport (Oporto, Portugal). It was about 8:30 when we arrived at the airport.
At 9:30, after some time waiting in the line, the gate was finally opened and we went into the airplane.

We landed at Brussels Zaventem airport at the estimated time (13:25, local time).
BG, JB’s cousin was going to get us at the airport. When we arrived at the spot he had asked us to meet him, we were surprised by RR, another JB’s cousin, who was traveling to Portugal and decided to stay in Brussels for that day just to meet us. It was a great surprise!

After we left our luggage in BG’s home, we walked to a kebab restaurant to have lunch and then we went to the supermarket to buy some food.

We spent the afternoon in BG’s house, finishing the trip plan, watching a movie, working, relaxing and playing with MG (BG’s daughter), who joined us later.

We had dinner at a restaurant known by its tasty burgers – Les Super Filles du Tram. As I am not fond of burgers, I decided to choose a salmon salad with avocado, grapefruit and arugula. But I must admit, I tried a small piece of burger and it was not bad.
