Portugal: Dreaming of Vacation

Because I’d visited Barcelona before, I decided to leave the city as soon as my official visit with Massó was over and move on to my next destination and spend the weekend there: Porto. I’d never been in Porto before, but I visited Lisbon about two years back and fell in love with the city. […]
