Last week I confessed my obsession of photographing house numbers during our bike journey in Portugal.
I realize the short "video" might have had a certain entertainment value, but probably fell far short of convincing the viewer that they should hop on a bike and tour there.
I now present "Countdown Redux." Twenty-one images that should whet your traveler's appetite and have you dreaming of your own bike trip through Portugal -- or somewhere, anywhere, on this incredible planet.
