i moved to porto back in june. now, all our stuff is here. and i’m looking forward to discovering the city and the country. eat the sardinhas grelhadas and drink their wine. i’ll also try to better my portuguese. which is rather basic right about now. i’ll get a local library card asap and start...
casa da musica is a concert hall that looks like an ufo that has just landed in rotunda da boavista. its surrounding travertine platform is pretty much the only smooth area for the hard-tried portuense skaters. porto is a city of many ups and downs and most streets are paved with very uncomfortable polished stones....
when in porto, i will always make sure to find a few hours for the serralves foundation. it includes the alvaro siza-designed museum, the wonderful sculpture park and the serene art deco villa.
for our last day trip from lisbon, we took the bus from sete rios and went 170 km south to porto covo, in alentejo.
the white box house is an amazing new guesthouse in porto. we stayed there for a few short days and fell in love with the place and the team.
one of the best day trips you can take from lisbon is going to setubal to see the dolphin family.
you shouldn’t leave lisbon before visiting its wonderful surroundings.
we arrived in lisbon in the morning and went first to check in the fontana park hotel and it proved to be a fabulous hotel!
yeah, i’m that predictable: i’m back from portugal and my wall has already changed. check it out!
