Before we left Denmark, our Portuguese contact wrote that he was planning a hunt for snipes. Michael found a video on YouTube just to tune in on the challenge and said in a quiet voice: I think you are going to see me under pressure! Because in that video they claimed snipes to be the fastest gamebird in the world!
Our trip to Portugal began with an invitation in a chat on Instagram. Yup! Something we always will tell our kids NOT to do! Even Miguel,”the man my husband met on the internet”, admitted that he probably wouldn’t have gone to Denmark on the same conditions. But we lowered our expectations and if the hunting part would fail, the two of us would still be on a little getaway and most important; I would get to travel!
