10 Things to Do in Portugal

Something romantic, something scenic, these were just some feelings lingered in me traveling the country of Portugal. Sharing some highlights of my trip. I hope one day you get inspired to add Portugal on your bucket list, because it’s must do if you’re someone like me, a melodramatic at times, honing those inner feelings to paint out the drama in you, like the following:

#1: Wake up with the sound of ocean breeze and be inspired to fall in love right in your backyard.

@Hotel Tivoli

Vale do Covo, Praia do Carvoeiro, 8401-911 Carvoeiro, Lagoa, Portugal

#2: For a moment, leave everything behind and travel back to time.

@ City of Lisbon

#3: Admire the interesting acts in the square of Lagos and shop while you’re at it too.
