Portugal = one of the most underrated countries ever! It is incredible. The architecture is mix of un-matching tiles all covering buildings with very feminine architecture and immense attention to detail. I was absolutely mesmerized by all of the different patterns everywhere. The streets were quintessentially hilly, cobblestone, and narrow. And of course, I'm a sucker for any place on the water! It was large with an international feel, yet cozy and approachable. There was a fantastic art/design/indie scene going on too.
Oh yeah, those guys totally jumped on for a free ride.
Delightful surprise: we happened upon a Carnival parade.
Cheesy, I know, but every tourist has to go stand on the place where there from on the map at the place where so many of the explorers set sail for the New World.
Man, wanted that dress so badly!
