Last week I shared some photos from one day in Porto. Today, I am sharing pics from a different day when the weather was VERY different - rain, clouds and fog all through the city.
Today I’m reaching back into the recent past, 2019, with two cities I visited in the same trip, Seville and Porto, to see how these two pretty great cities to visit compare against each other. One has ties with a Moorish past, bull fighting and one of the largest cathedrals in the world, the other is famous for its wine and for a magnificent two-story bridge, and also for just being one of the nicest cities in Europe. BUT – they can’t both win!
Slovakia is somewhere in the middle there, around Poland, Ukraine, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic, and boasts an attractive capital in Bratislava, some stunning mountains with great hiking opportunities and more. So check out how I saw it - Through My Lens!
A short tram ride from Lisbon's centre, Belem is on the Tagus River and has wonderful river views coupled with exceptional historic buildings. And here's how my camera found them!
Last week I posted on my day trip to Sintra, from Lisbon. Sintra is a brilliant destination, probably worth a couple of days at least of your time, and today I'm showing you the best of my photos from one of the best palaces in the region, the Palacio Nacional de Sintra! Enjoy!
Sintra is less than 35km from Lisbon and the perfect day trip. Here's how we found it when we went last year! So many castles, palaces and mountains it's truly a beautiful part of Western Europe!
The challenge - you have 48 hours and $200 and you have to experience as much of Paris as you can in that time with that money! What would YOU do?
Have you ever wanted to stay in a palace or a castle? In Portugal, many of the old palaces are state owned and it is possible to stay in them. Here's our experience at the 'Pousada de Quelez'.
The food in Seville was not only really tasty, but also great value for money! Here's how I found it last year in the region of Andalusia!
On this day back in 2011 I went from the south of France to Paris via road and train. On it's 9th anniversary, I relive this trip!
