Sangrias, Sunshine & Bossa Novas from Ribeira Square in Porto, Portugal

The most beautiful moments in life just happen by chance. In March I had a pleasure of experiencing one of those magical moments of pure perfection in Porto. The sound of live music got my attention – Soft and smooth Brazilian Bossa Novas were dancing in the air. I picked a perfect spot, front row seats for this live show. I started people watching, as the sun warmed up my face. My Sangria order arrived and it was perfectly delicious! As time passed, and my drink slowly vanished in front of my eyes, I decided that I would extend this moment a bit longer and savour every beautiful second I possibly could. This is where my little reward comes in – I decided to order another glass of this perfect sangria just so I could stay in this beautiful moment awhile longer. As the afternoon turned into an early evening and my bill arrived, only one sangria was on the bill. A reward indeed! This entire afternoon was very rewarding for me and I am …

NEW: Italy, Portugal & Spain Pages

For easier navigation, I created separate pages above for countries I’ve visited this year so far. I am still in the process of creating many posts for Spain and some on Italy and Portugal too. In Italy I visited The Vatican City and Rome. In Portugal I visited Porto, Matosinhos and Braga. In Spain I visited Barcelona, Lloret de Mar, Platja d’Aro and Empuriabrava.

Porto in Photos

I found Porto extremely charming and beautiful, and I took tons of photos of the city. I decided to do little Porto in Photos segments to show the city to you. I will usually do a photo post consisting of about 10 or 15 photos with a short description on the photos. I travelled to Porto without a city guide, and if you read a little on the city, you won’t need one either. I didn’t even take a map with me. You will get a free map at the airport which is pretty nice. My Airbnb host had 2 more maps for me at the apt as well.

If you have any questions for me, please leave them in the Comments section bellow and I will answer them for you 🙂 The name of this road is Av. Dom Alfonso Henriques. Igreja de Santo António dos …
