... top offered some stunning views over Braga. It was well worth a day trip to check it out and the town of Braga was nice to stroll around in too. Our last full day in Porto the weather was a little drizzly but we checked out the Livraria Lello, a bookstore lovers dream. It is one of the oldest bookstores in Portugal and has been named the third best bookstore in the world! In fact this bookstore is where J.K Rowling, the author of Harry ...

Catarina was nice enough to host us on couchsurfing for one night in Porto so we could then catch another bus the next day. She was very nice and even bought us a little portuguese pastry thing.
