Portugal

From the north to the south we witness incredible sights all along the way. It's one of the most romantic countries in the world. Beaches, lighthouses, music, wine, dancing. It's hard not to fall in love with Portugal. You could even say impossible. We explore medieval cities and watch incredible sunsets. We wander through enchanted mystical forests and extravagant castles. We hitchhike directly to the beach and camp on the cliffs of the Atlantic ocean. It's the perfect blend of adventure and romance.

Essential Porto: Top 10 authentic things to do

Porto, what a city! We don’t usually write these types of posts, for us it’s mostly about the journey rather than the destination.
