Escape of the Week: The Colors of Portugal

I spent time in Portugal, but not quality time. Mostly because I was sick. And, then I was drunk , and then I was hungover.

Fortunately, there was at least one good day in the middle of my 10 or so days in the country when I was moderately healthy and totally sober.

I met a few girls in Lisboa and convinced them (thanks to the fantastic advice from Abby) to head to Sintra for a day-trip. The city did not disappoint. Curling up a hill, the city offers so many gorgeous colors, textures, and of course, a view of the ocean from many vantage points.

I love taking photos of buildings … especially in the coastal cities of Portugal, where the salty air mixes with the once-vibrant colors.

This is one of my favorites:

  1. I think Portugal is Scott’s and my absolute favorite country in the world. We dream of owning a second home on the Algarve–although I suppose first we need a “first home” somewhere, eh? =)


  2. These photos are gorgeous! Portugal is a country I haven’t made it to either (apparently most of us here have not!), but I will have to add it to my list of countries to visit while I still live here in Europe …

    Thanks for sharing!


    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment!! Portugal is a lovely country. I didn’t get to spend as much time there as I would have liked, but have every intention of going back and exploring more of it, particularly Lisbon, since I was sick while I was there. Where in Germany do you live?
