Geocache Description:


From the perspective of an Austrian in Portugal ... De vista de um austríaco em Portugal ...

This station was quite important some decades ago as a lot of soldiers hat to change trains at this point.

A friend of the family remembers that the officer shouted loudly "Alfareeeelos, Aaalfareeeelos" when the train approached Alfarelos station. This was for warning all guests who had to change the train. Also the sleeping ones!

This friend liked this way of announcement, so he copied it for all kinds of "alarms" he had to do. So the first meaning of the word "Alfareeelos" for the kids in the family was "Lunch is ready! Come to eat!!"

Nowadays the station seems not to be so important, however, it's still a point of interest and definitely worth a geocache!

Esta estação foi muito importante algumas décadas atrás, quando muitos soldados tinham de mudar comboios nesse ponto.

Um amigo da família lembra que o revisor gritou em voz alta "Alfareeeelos, Aaalfareeeelos" quando o comboio se aproximava da estação Alfarelos. Esta era o aviso para todos os passageiros que tinham mudar de comboio. Assim, os adormecidos!

Este amigo gostava dessa forma de aviso, para que ele copiou para todos os tipos de "alarmes" que tinha de fazer. Assim, o primeiro significado da palavra "Alfareeelos" para as crianças da família era "O almoço está pronto! Venha comer !!"

Hoje a estação não parece ser tão importante, no entanto, ainda é um ponto de interesse e definitivamente vale uma geocache!

The cache is quite simple to find. I tried to place it on a place where there are not too many muggles around.

Please have a look on the spoiler. It shows how the cache sees the world when it's uncovered.

Esta cache deve ser facil de encontrar. Eu tentei esconder-la num lugar onde não há muitos muggles.

Por favor, dê uma olhada no spoiler. Ele mostra como a cache vê o mundo quando está descoberta.

Happy caching! Boas cachadas!
Congratulations for the FTF to os amigos do spike! Parabéns aos os amigos do spike pelo FTF!
