P O R T O
Flight to Porto. The view on the mountains in Spain is spectacular!
What’s it like being in Porto in Fall with 7 amigas? You may guess!? Lots of fun of course! The mood & food were more than good. And we loved to stroll through one of oldest European centres and watch the hustle and bustle around and on the Douro river. ➵ An impression of three days well spent in Porto - Oct 2018, and tips where to go and eat. ➵
Where to go
1. Ribeira: Study the beautiful antique tiles almost every house or historical site is covered with. Watch the activities on and around the river Douro. Always look up and see elderly people in their colored houses looking down on you in the hilly streets. ➵

“S A U D A D E”
This Portugese word symbolizes a mixture of a few emotions: longing, melancholy, incompleteness, and love.
2. The sunset spot: Go to thé sunset spot of Porto: Passeio das Virtudes. This is a natural elevated street from where you can get an amazing view over the river, the bridge Ponte da arrabida and Gaia on the south bank. Relax on the grass and listen to people chatting and strumming their guitar while the sun turns your view into gold. ➵
S U N S E T T I N G
3. Foz: Visit lovely small boutiques, walk or bike along the beach and have lunch in the sun.
