Last spring I traveled to Spain to oversee the installation of a solo exhibition at the Museo Extremeño e Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo – Extremaduran and Latin American Museum of Contemporary Art (MEIAC) in Badajoz, Spain.

After the installation, I decided to go on an adventure and fly fish in Portugal. I was dropped off by the museum driver in Castelo Branco in Portugal and a few hours later my fly fishing guide picked me up and we drove to his neck of the woods where we fished streams that were used the previous year in the World Fly Fishing Championships.

I ate every meal with the guide and his wife at restaurants in the area and I stayed at a modest home that was been used by the fly fisherman year before. The entire time I fished I did not see another angler. The trip finished with a drive back to Lisbon along roads lined with cork trees. My last night was spent in the old section of the city in front of a  plateful of sardines, potatoes and fresh greens.

Here is a detailed map of every step I took while on the trip as well as a few images to document the adventure. The map was created on my iPhone using the GAIA GPS app. It d0cuments everything you could possibly want from a trip. I am going to try to use more of its feature in Montana next week.
