After a weekend in Segovia and a weekend in Barcelona, my friends and I had one more trip planned before a few weekends of relaxation in Madrid. We spent last weekend in Oporto, Portugal! It was an incredibly beautiful city of colorful architecture, intricate tiles, winding streets, and open plazas. There’s a river, a beach, great food, and (what appear to be) happy people. I went to Oporto with very few expectations, knowing almost nothing about the city, and came back with a renewed eagerness to travel, a new appetite for egg tarts, and a desire to return to Portugal.
