Weekdays - Sleepy Seaside Town

Cascais was a wonderful location for VT's EuroMeet2009, hosted by Antonio, Teresa, Paulo and Rosario.

During the week in the lead-up to the Meet, it was clearly a sleepy seaside town - even with VT's early arrivals livening up in the evenings.

Weekends - Lisboeta Sunning Town

At the weekend, Cascais gets very lively with Lisboetas heading to the coast to work on their suntans.

Of course, VTers are best seen in their natural element of evenings at the pub followed by clubbing!!

Pros and Cons
