Cabo da Roca, Portugal - Continental Europe's westernmost point.
They once thought this was the edge of the world, and I can see why. All you can see in front of you is the gaping Atlantic.
I ventured here on quite possibly the windiest and rainiest day ever (sans wind/rain protection). Not to mention that the bus ride from Sintra was so windy that I was viciously carsick by the time I had arrived. With any bad luck, the wind would have blown me off the rugged cliffs and I would have drifted off in the Atlantic while I bent over to spew.
Aside from all this, the trip was entirely worth it. I hiked around a bit, figuring that I was already drenched and mud wouldn't hurt me. Take time to wander around, don't just snap photos at the monument and attack the gift shop.
a little "post-spewing off the cliffs" shot of yours truly, absolutely nauseous. the roads to Cabo da Roca are very... more travel advice
