As some of you already know…I use to live in Portugal, and OHHH how badly I’ve wanted to go back. But the prices of airfare to go overseas just hurts….literally! I served a mission for my church there…so it was by no means a vacation, it was lots of hard work (although rewarding in ways I can’t even describe) and we lived like natives…so no fancy hotels or site seeing…In fact one of the houses I lived in had only the door separating the cobblestone outside from our flooring inside the house 🙂 Lol, gooood times! Oh & we had rats living in the ceiling that I could hear scurrying around while trying to fall asleep. But now, I’d like to go back as a tourist. There are MANY places to see on my bucket list, but this is first on my list because 1) I want to see some of the people I taught & helped, and 2) I already speak the language…that’s always comforting. I was just going through some of my photos from my time there & that’s what brought on all this reminising & “home sickness” in a way…I know that sounds weird, but Portugal really does feel like my second home. So I thought maybe you’d enjoy seeing them too.
Portugal they say is the “Hidden Gem” of Europe. It’s soooo beautiful & unique, the people are SUUUPER friendly and the food is absolutely divine! Enjoy!
