I visited Portugal the first time last year. I spent one month traveling around the country. The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is a beautiful city with a long history. But it was the city to the north of Lisbon, Porto, with its rough edges, that really caught my interest. Beautiful architecture, warm and welcoming people and rich culture.
This year I decided to return to Porto and this time I was better prepared. I rented an apartment with a view over the Douro river and had my coffee in the window in the morning as the boats were passing by.
The city was covered in fog in the mornings. I decided to use it as an advantage.
