I'm so excited to share my photos from the second part of our backpacking adventure. After being in The Netherlands and Belgium, we went to Portugal, my native land. A week was not even close to enough time to spend in my favorite place. I wanted to make time stop, so I could just be with my family and spend time in my country. We spent three days in Porto and Guimarães and five days in Lisbon. We ate amazing food, spent a little bit of time with family, and explored some castles. I'm ready to go back again immediately!
The last image here is a street artist impersonating one of my all-time favorite authors, Fernando Pessoa, who is Portugal's most famous writer. I truly wish I had had more time in Portugal, especially in Lisbon, but I am already planning my next trip there!
