August, 2016 - LISBOA, PORTUGAL - POST 3 OF 4

Back to Belem to take in the Maritime and Coach Museums.  It was interesting to get more information on the early navigators that played such an important role in European trade expansion.  The Coach Museum is the largest of its kind and details the development of the horse drawn coach as a mod of transportation.

Early "ships" were only about 4 times the size of our boat.

The coaches ranged from Fire Engines, to mass transport, to luxury coaches for royalty.
