A photo essay from Porto, Portugal

    Ah, your photos are so gorgeous! I used to live in England but I’ve been in America for the past 6 years for school, and I’ve been pining for Europe recently. These photos just make me want to go back even more, so, so pretty.

      Thanks Shannon. I think most places look lovely when the sun is shining – it’s just a shame the sun doesn’t shine very often in England!

    Awesome pics…Loved the ones of the wine barrels. Reminded me of our visit to Napa a few weeks ago!

    Gorgeous!! I love the building with the blue and white. What a charming town. I’ve been only once — for a soccer game. I wish I’d been able to tour around!

      Thanks Abby, I love that building too and especially with the sunlight shining behind it. I bet it was a great place to watch a soccer game too.

    Could help myself and had to take a peak at this. Porto looks amazing, your photos and brilliant Monica and I am now totally gutted I couldn’t make it out there with everyone else 🙁

    Ah well, next year maybe.

    oh wishin I was there!! Especially for that dessert ball whatever it is!

      I think it was some kind of cheese meat ball if I remember rightly… It was still delicious though!

    Ah, you’ve captured the place so well. It’s such a pretty city! I love all the tiles in the walls.

    Monica, great photos you´ve whet my appetite in more ways than one. Porto is a city I long to visit and drive there I will one day.

    Lovely photos, like the presentation and thanks for making me drool.

    Brilliant! You have managed to capture all the wonderful aspects of Portugal, without saying a word. Pictures often speak more than words. Particularly like the last villa shot, looks so inviting!

      Thanks Sasha. I definitely agree – a picture speaks a thousand words!
