A Trip to Portugal Is a Must
Yes, I'm Portuguese. That isn't news around the SouthCoast. Who doesn't have a little Portuguese in them around here?
My actual last name of Medeiros is so common around here I don't even have to spell it when telling people what it is. But if I go anywhere else in the country, people ask if I'm Greek! When I tell them I'm Portuguese, they ask if I have ever been to Portugal. I have to tell them that sadly, I have not.
Well, the travel gods must be trying to send me a message because I keep coming across all of these articles that say Portugal is the BEST travel destination in the world.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I have been wanting to make a trip to the homeland. Madeira and Lisbon are definitely on the bucket list. I even second-guessed myself on taking a trip to Sydney and instead going to Portugal. Looking back, I totally should have.
Have you made the trip to anywhere in Portugal? If so, what are the must sees and dos there? Where should I fly in?
It looks like I better start saving my pennies and get over there. With all this attention, Portugal is bound to get all the tourists.
Now all of Portugal has the four seasons just like us, right? So I should probably wait until it gets a little warmer so I can get outdoors and be adventurous. Let's not forget my priority: wine. Can we ship some back to the States? I'll share.
Who wants to come to Portugal with me?
