Enchanting Roadtrip through Portugal

We are finally getting around to sharing some photos from this trip. We actually visited Portugal back in the summer of 2015 on an amazing two-week road trip. Most people unfortunately only ever see Lisbon (or Porto), the Algarve and maybe the famous Duoro Valley, since a Portugal trip is often partnered up with some time spent in Spain. But for our trip, we decided to give Portugal a full two weeks and we did not regret it. The eastern edge is so very different than the rest and same with the North! With amazing (and typically cheaply priced) foods, medieval towns, wild horses, vinho verde & port, there is so much that this country has to try, offer and see! We seriously recommend it to anyone and definitely let us know if you have any questions because we are happy to share our experiences. Speaking of sharing, here are some of our photos during the trip. Aside from the Arroh & Bow dress series (search the blog for those), typically we like to treat our vacations like, vacations! So here are just some snaps from the two weeks.

Lisbon - the streets of Lisbon are full of traditional European charm like you cannot find in North America.

Zambujeira do Mar - located in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentina Coast Natural Park, this small beach with a waterfall was a perfect example of the rugged coastline Portugal has to offer.
