hello my good people and welcome back my name is john and this is my beautiful wife alexandra if for some reason we led you to believe that we were all about posh hotels and fancy dinner parties then you couldn't be more mistaken because this weekend is all about nature we are heading up to explore zhiriz which is the most beautiful natural reserve in portugal so if you enjoy caravanning campsites and most of all if you're a nature lover then stick around because i bet you're gonna love this [Music] [Music] video [Music] good morning good morning my friends so we're preparing our breakfast in the caravan as you can see it is actually quite simple some scrambled eggs for the misses um porridge for me oats ota oats oatmeal some tea and some coffee some cappuccino for alexander oh alexander is bringing out the big guns with us with the hair smoked ham yeah smoked ham isn't it yeah smoked ham in english i'm assuming that's smoked ham okay so today what we have planned um we're gonna go and check out some more walks some waterfalls and stuff like that whatever what beautiful things they have had to do in jewish but before i go though i will take you to a little stroll around the campsite so you can have an idea what it's like for some reason you thinking of coming to visit uh you know what to expect see in a second okay here we go for a little tour of the campsite it's actually a small campsite uh very cozy but it's actually very very nice and it has some steps here see if i can show you so go to the reception through here no this isn't the place to put the temps probably somewhere just to fix them or something like that so basically you have these um i'm not sure how you would call them um so the tents are mounted like that let's just go down these stairs here okay so they're on these little cliff thingies here and all organized like that everything is actually quite nice loads and loads of shade so there's sort of like a tent space now you will have to bring the mattress there because uh it's not sand or anything like that so it's not going to be the floor's not going to be terribly comfortable i actually think it's quite nice small sort of cozy lots of shade lots of many birds singing if you can hear that um okay so you can go up those stairs head to the reception there's a reception air area with a little bar there you go so you can put your tents all around this area here you've got your electricity outlets if you need them and you also have bungalows so if you like to rent a bungalow you have some bungalows here you have another one over there i'm not sure how many there are but i think it's a really nice place to be honest [Applause] it's sort of like um well in the wilderness because you have many campsites so you don't really have very many trees it's also like an open space and it doesn't give you the sensation the real sensation of camping and this gives you a definite sensation of camping in the wilderness so i think it's very nice for that a little bit here you can cross or if your kids like to come under i'm guessing in the winter there's probably some rain coming through here though because there's out actually uh an inline over there for the water the excess water how cool is this like this bungalow is actually suspended here and if if water actually runs uh underneath which i believe it probably does in the winter i think it's going to be an awesome place so you have another bundle over here so it's quite a small place okay here you go jerez green park um green park yeah camping julia's green park camping look at that how cool is this okay let's cross this bridge here little stone bridge here it's probably very old i'll go up here up these stairs here you go bear with me try not to make very much noise because it's still very very early in the morning okay so people are sleeping here's the campsite doggy okay so you can have something to drink in the shade or in the sun if it's early morning like now there you go you've got your grill over there if you'd like to grill something very nice little shop um cafe little bar something to eat and drink if you'd like some breakfast or something like that you actually have a breakfast to menu here they serve caipirinha oh how cool is this look at this very nice okay so there you have it this is the jurisa green park camping area i think it's lovely and the owner is really really nice really helpful really sympathetic and that's a big bonus of course and let's just check the bathroom area here so here's where we put our van it only has space for about two or three bands at the best so that's actually a good thing because you know it's not going to be very crowded with people and sometimes i prefer campings like this so you have your washing area here where you can wash your your dishes what do we have like here here's the bathrooms i didn't check for washing machines to be honest uh we didn't need that so i'm not sure if they have it or not but i'm guessing they probably have it over there the the shop it's something that if you're thinking of coming by you better look into it okay so they have it that's the jury to green park camping very nice very pleasant very quiet very peaceful it's the entrance here and down this road here i actually heard people running all the way through the the night actually um running away down there so this is probably some there's probably something really nice down there for people to go and see okay so now we're gonna just get ready and get on the road and see if you can we can show you some more some more great views see you in a sec on the road again so we are ready we are heading off to the cascada facility huh okay did you get that i did so that's who we going commonly known as the tahiti waterfall because it seems like many years back about 15 or 20 years back a commercial was filmed at this waterfall with a sexy lady showering with her showering gel shampoo soap showering soap i actually remember that commercial it was very very long time ago but i remember that and possibly some of you guys will remember also you know that the woman underneath the waterfall uh bathing with her shower soap um it's quite a sexy advert actually [Music] okay so that's where we're heading now is it is it nice they're beautiful okay they say it's very beautiful but it's very difficult to get there so they don't recommend taking your kids okay so okay so it seems like that it has many sort of pools and so it's difficult to pass from one pool to the other that's what's difficult okay so off we go to kashgata faciado so this place has loads of security warnings um and we have actually been told by the people from the ambulance the ambulance isn't here because of this waterfall okay it's actually here because there's a um a run going on and so that's why they're here to aid people if they need it but they have they have told us that the rocks are very slippery and many people have really hurt themselves quite badly uh trying to do this waterfall so it's something that we're gonna have to obtain take into consideration and be extra careful okay so here's the river here it's a beautiful river i just filmed at the top i'm gonna pass that video now it's a really really beautiful river once again this is actually the second trail we do in this past month or something like that and once again i decided to bring my bloody trainers but i really have to get myself a good pair of hiking boots because the train is a little bit slippery inside and they don't really support your ankle very much and so these are not the most the best shoes of course that's stupid to me even to think that so here we go it's a really really beautiful river actually with loads of big stones i'm gonna see if i can film the big stones now there you go oh look at that christine [Music] look at that wow who is it which makes socks see how sweetly that is wow [Music] oh yeah so you can use you can see these metal protections here and i'm guessing that's probably to prevent people from sleeping all the way down because if you slip down there yes you will hurt yourself how slippery is this not that bad well i'm guessing this cut here is really really sticky yeah it's really slippery really really slippery i bet many people really slipped down this yeah these stones are awesome without doubt that's why it's such a such a dangerous place no okay perfect so there's a little house here a while ago there there was a house up on the other side which is actually a meal an old meal he's even had a stone there i'm supposing this this is a meal too look unfortunately people leave their rubbish here but this is actually a meal can you see that stone over there so you put the grains in between that stone and another stone that would be sat on top of that and there should be somewhere um it's disgusting here one of these this here probably went down to the water or something like that to make the wheel turn to make it churn i think that's how you call it okay an old mill how nice and there was another one just just on the other side yeah you need to know what oh nice oh schandler that's fine where you going over there there's another another route on the other side also okay nice and easy here because here is where things start to get slippery [Music] okay so this waterfall actually has um two different names we've and two one of the names has different pronunciations so this is a tidy waterfall as i said before kashkata dairy and it's also koshkata davarzia or varsia waterfall but some people because of the northern pronunciation they say um i don't know why i asked the nurse the nurse a while ago and she didn't really know how to how to explain that either so they would call it the varsity waterfall uh barges waterfall or otherwise the tahiti waterfall so you can choose your own name okay look down there it's beautiful down there there's another another little track over on the other side on the right hand side possibly we can do that track and see just where it goes okay so this is a really really beautiful place i'm guessing you can take fantastic pictures here um let me know in your comments below what you thought about this one so this is the tahiti waterfall so still here look at this absolutely marvelous so we actually decided to take off our trainers because i mean the best soul is sometimes your own soul wait oh my god you really have to be careful here it doesn't look so big in this picture but it's it's actually quite huge well if you see the people over there you can understand oh there we go okay so this little channel here is actually a tree trunk can you see that i have no idea how long it's been here and i'm guessing until we actually fell would that be quick it probably fell and the water just kept running along the trunk running along the trunk until it made the channel would that be would that be correct you need to love us you give me your opinion or if you think someone actually placed it on purpose and started this little channel here no idea so let me just check down here see if i can get this without endangering myself so being nature lovers as we are the idea was actually to strip naked and take a bath here for you guys to see but you know there's just so many people here it's just not gonna happen you know maybe next time but keep watching you never know okay so we have taken our pictures for social media and all that stuff i'm just going to give you a quick look of 360 around this gorgeous place here don't forget cascatia davarzia or kashkata tighty tighty waterfall or varsity waterfall it's a very very beautiful place as you can see most people are at the top over there because it's much difficult to get back down here so it's a little more private actually if you'd like to go for a dip my wife is actually trying to gain courage to go into the water but it is really really freezing that dip i did yesterday it made my legs really burn when i left the wood it was just so so so cold so let's see what she decides hopefully she'll go in for a dip let's just see if not we'll see you in the van okay so back in the caravan and back on out away now we're going to go to the mirador de jurokes now it's this waterfall here the taiiti waterfall to be honest i would not recommend bringing kids okay because i think they could get carried away and it's too easy for someone to hurt themselves as you saw we did not take our dip that was the idea but the rocks were so slippery and you know as responsible adults we don't really feel that it's worth the unnecessary risk okay if you know if the conditions were different if it wasn't so slippery we would possibly go for a dip because that is the idea um please leave your comments below about that waterfall i think this magnificent place it was really really beautiful and if for some reason you are traveling here in the judicial in portugal don't forget to go for a peek uh because it's fantastic that's okay so now uh uh miradore let's go so we've arrived at the parking parking space not really apartments just people park their cars on the side of the road uh uh at the rocker viewpoint mirador de rocca at the rock okay so um we were actually quite lucky with the caravan because there was a guy that saw that we were having difficulty parking the caravan and he said oh don't worry i'll move i'll go i'll go because i've already seen this and you can park here so it's fantastic very nice of him okay so we're gonna go up there somewhere um there's actually a waterfall along here but we're going up to the viewpoint which is up there i'm not sure if you can see it up there so that's our route let's head on how cool is this i wouldn't recommend here coming with your flip flops [Applause] there we go okay [Applause] foreign [Applause] here i'm almost there what a great check oh some stairs here we go so this is the correct route okay some stirs it'll take us all the way up to the top steep stairs almost there almost there just one more flight to go look at that how cool go go shannon and we made it now yes that was a formidable climb not for the paint-hearted okay so this is a rocket viewpoint miradoro there's rocket let me just give you a 360 here there's our house down there here we go okay so that was nice the view is as magnificent as most of our views around here um but i would recommend it more for the trek than for the view the view is spectacular but the trek is awesome okay so what comes up now must go down let's go [Applause] [Applause] my [Applause] this is [Applause] [Applause] me [Applause] okay so that was done uh once again please please leave your comments below uh if not for the view at least for the trek so uh right now we have we're going to go to the arad waterfall okay so we'll see you on route [Music] [Music] you
