How Portugal has managed to fly under the radar and not be completely overrun with tourism, I will never know. I believe it is Europes best kept secret and I really hope, for my own selfish reasons but also for the people of Portugal (I think that we can all agree that living in a tourist metropolis has serious drawbacks), that it stays that way. I was lucky enough to spend an entire week flitting between Portugal's mountains and beaches and the city of Lisbon. Perfect weather, fresh seafood, beautiful architecture, lovely people - I don't know what to say about my experience here other than I will certainly be back. I have an overwhelming desire to share Lisbon with the people I love.
I have loved every leg of my journey on this trip thus far, but Portugal is the only country that I absolutely must return to again before my time in Europe comes to a close.
