I’m not sure why I’ve never really considered Portugal on top of my list of places to visit. It was there, sort of waiting for an opportunity to be explored and discovered. This year, we finally decided to go to Portugal and I can’t believe it has taken us so long to get there.
We both found Portugal to be a very beautiful place although we only saw Lisbon and Porto. Both pleasantly surprised us and wet our appetite for more. I was particularly surprised that almost everyone spoke English, which was very helpful, and we felt very welcomed.
I loved the architecture, the colours and the history. I must admit that as far as European history goes, I am not as versed in Portugal’s as I am in other parts, which might be a bit odd considering I’m a history major. It was one of those trips that really made me interested in learning more about this place and we will definitely go back to explore more.
I am getting to writing more detailed posts about those places, but meanwhile, here is a little taste of Portugal as experienced by us.
Have you been to Portugal? What’s your fave spot?
