Discovering Portugal

Hello everyone!

Sorry for taking a summer break but I have been busy traveling, working, and studying. I hope you all had a lovely summer 🙂

This year I’ve visited Portugal and I had a wonderful time! Portugal is a beautiful country, it has an interesting history and culture and its beaches are amazing! I love the ocean ❤

It was my first time in Portugal and I already know that I want to come back and visit more soon. I flew to Lisbon and I found a boutique hotel to stay near Alfama, which is the medieval old town. I fell in love with this district, it is my favorite part of the city because it is so bohemian and romantic. Lisbon is really colorful and you can enjoy stunning views of the Portuguese capital from several miradouros.

Transports are quite cheap and fast in Portugal, actually, it is possible to reach a lot of beaches near Lisbon by train or ferry. I highly recommend to visit Costa de Caparica and have a surf lesson or discover Cascais, which is a popular seaside town where King Luís I of Portugal and the Portuguese royal family made their summer residence in 1870, thus also attracting members of the Portuguese nobility.

My last stop was at Praia do Guincho, a surfers’ paradise not far from Cascais. I don’t speak Portuguese but it hasn’t been a big problem because I’ve always met someone speaking English or Spanish.

I wish I’ll be back soon to visit the South region (Algarve) and North (Porto).

Have you ever visited Portugal? Or are you planning to travel there soon? Share your opinion and feel free to comment! 🙂
