Thank you for the lovely comment Carlos :) Hope you have an amazing time in Sintra! The coastal route is definitely worth exploring — though the mountains and palaces are spectacular, they can get overrun with tourists. I’m sure you’ll find a lot of interesting little gems of your own on your wanders. :)
Great article. I re-watched a few Chaplin films recently and it really struck me how his unique form of a comedy is a kind of lost art. Most comedies these days fall over the edge into complete crassness. There was something incredible human and empathetic in the way Chaplin created his characters.
