That was last October, under a glorious sun!
Portugal, and Lisbon in particular are very popular destinations these days. It seems like everyone around me has been there in the last year. Yet I feel it still retains a very authentic feel. In my book it has become some kind of very safe bet. We’ve been there three times and every time we got the nicest welcome, good food, great weather, impressive lodging…and at a great price!
You also get the feeling that there is still a lot of untapped potential there. In fact, as we discussed with a Portuguese on our last trip, she admitted that they’re not so good at promoting what they’re good at. Maybe humility is what makes the whole country feels so right?____________ See pictures of Portugal here.
