Touching Timelessness

We are timeless beings… We’ve heard this over and over again. We’ve thought about it, analyzed it, imagined it, contemplated it, meditated on it, researched and studied it… We’ve lived it in dreams, moments of impact, ecstasy and apparent phenomena… We’ve even had fleeting and sometimes more than fleeting cognizant acquaintance with it, seemingly transitory participation or involvement via sensory, empirical, provisional understanding… maybe even observational evidence… Now come touch it! Truly experience it. Live it with us for an entire seven days in Portugal!!!



Join Eric & Jillian for this excursion into the timeless as you explore the heart of the wine country in Portugal and experience its culture, architecture and history. A sensory feast for the internal, external and eternal.

Porto is a fascinating and vibrant city that is rapidly becoming one of Western Europe’s most respected tourist destinations. The city boasts an extensive history, interesting tourist attractions, a buzzing nightlife, and outstanding tourist facilities.


The Douro Wine Valley Region Valley is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. First, the river carved the deep valleys out of the land and then settlers transformed the schist mountains into soil and walls and planted the vines, green in summer, flame-coloured in autumn. With knowledge handed down from generation to generation, they inclined the terraces to expose the vines to the rays of the sun which give the grapes the warmth that the wine craves. It was from the fruits of the land and the settlers’ labour that this unique wine and landscape were made.
