Just to clarify, we will meet you all of the coach that arrives in Oleiros at 21.30 and bring you here. The coach takes 3.5 hours. If you suffer from travel sickness then raw ginger will be very helpful. You have to change buses twice from Porto. one in Coimbra and one in Serta.
Please enure you have paid your balance for the retreat before you arrive
If your retreat runs from Saturday morning until Friday afternoon then you will be on the coach that leaves the Sete Rios in Lisbon at 7am and arrives in Oleiros at 10.30. We will meet you there to bring you to the retreat.
If coming by car then please meet Peter in Oleiros at 21.30
We look forward to seeing you here

Please Note: You can only book the coach two weeks in advance.
The best way is to fly into Lisbon and then either take a coach or a taxi (ask at tourist info in the airport if getting the bus) to the sete rios terminal where you can catch the rede expressos coach to Oleiros. We then come and pick you up.
If flying into Porto then the journey is 2 hours longer as you have stop offs.
Rede Expressos buses leave from Garagem Atlantico, R. de Alexandre Herculano, Porto, 4000 Portugal. This is close to Campanha Station
We are in the middle of Lisbon and Porto near the Spanish boarder.
Have a safe journey
