Over the next few days, I'll be taking you on a candy-colored journey through Western Europe, starting in Porto, Portugal. Prints available at europe.mattcrump.com

Porto feels frozen in an olden whimsical time. I half-expected to find dragons or dueling wizards around every corner as I wandered its vibrant, meandering streets.

It immediately reminded me of Hogsmeade, the magical town near Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series.

In fact, J.K. Rowling lived in Porto for 2 years and was heavily inspired by the city.

Porto's modern cruise terminal stands in stark contrast to the old-world architecture of downtown.

Special thanks to Viking Ocean Cruises. Purchase prints at europe.mattcrump.com
