-- Joseph Jul 31, 2017A Beautiful Country to Explore
I visited Porto and Lisbon. Hotels in both cites were extremely clean, attractive and comfortable. The food in Portugal is varied and fresh. Try the octopus, sardines and salt cod besides the pork, veal and chicken dishes. All meals were very tasty and well done, and the bakery items are to die for. Enjoy an evening of Fado music and combine it with dinner at a Lisbon cafe. Take time to walk the narrow and curving streets, up and down the hills, walk all over and get lost among the colorful buildlings, the museums and the churches. Ride the tram in Lisbon. Try a tour to Sintra for sightseeing and lunch and be sure to check out the ocean. Portugal is a beautiful, energetic, history-filled country filled with fascinating and friendly people. Be aware of pick-pocketers as one did attempt a “maneuver” on us on a crowded tourist street. But in general Portugal is a safe and exciting country. Go now before it gets overrun with tourists....
