My First Time in Portugal, Europe

I always dream of traveling, I didn’t get very far in my 20s unfortunately, but I did get to go to Canada, west to east twice, the USA as a teen, and once to Europe! That last trip was amazing! I loved it so much!

A Dream Come True.

So fantastic, at twenty-nine years old, a month and a half before my thirtieth birthday, I got to check something off my bucket list! I still can’t believe it yet! The airport ambiance, the stress of stepping into the plane, everything brings me joy! The food was not that good, but who cares haha! It was a night flight, so I mostly tried to sleep, but it did not work that much.

The arrival was pretty fast, the duty did not take too much of my time. I was so tired anyway, I admit my patience is not really good without a night of sleep!

It at least was so sunny and warm, way warmer than a Canadian November! The temperature was a delight almost all week, but I do remember a full day of rain!

Food Porn, at its Best!!

In Portugal, the best food ever was the fish! It is so fresh and the way it is cooked makes it taste wonderful! I ate it every day, no joke. The wine was also really cheap, less than water! It is a really good place to become an alcoholic! I was drinking a bottle easily by myself! I, of course, brought some bottles of Porto home! But seriously, best food ever! If you are like me and love to eat, it is the best place for you! I am already missing it so much!

Such a wonderful history.

I am not a Cinderella type of person, but history has always had a part in my life. Visiting a castle was something I had to do while visiting Europe. I had the chance to visit two castles in Sintra and I absolutely found them stunning!

To finish, I loved my week! Yes, we mostly took time to rest, walk (a lot) and visit around Lisbon, but it was worth it! I will definitely go back solo, even if I have to live with people couch surfing, or stay in a hotel. My ultimate dream is that I will be in Europe for a month next year! I have to make that happen!
