Portugal: For the Travel Lovers
This time last year I never would have thought that I would be able to add Portugal to the list of countries I have been to before 21. I went with my friends all on our own and we had the most amazing time. Portugal is a country that is easy to fall in love with. The people are amiable, the food is to die for, and after a long night of partying you just might find yourself in an uber chatting with the driver about everything and anything. I think that the biggest highlight of my weekend trip in Porto was going surfing for the first time! This is also something I probably would've never done because paranoia & anxiety gets the best of me, but I would've never overcome my fears had it not been for my super adventurous and courageous friends whom I am so grateful for.
There is a saying by Samuel Johnson that goes like this:
"The use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are."
