Portoooo! A wonderful surprise stop on our Euro adventure. Though Porto was not in the original travel plans, it was significantly cheaper to fly out of Porto than Lisbon. Oh man, I am so grateful this stop happened! The friendliness, beauty, history, charm, food, river, architecture....ETC. was like a dream in Porto. Though Lisbon was fun and lively, I think I preferred Porto overall. I wish I could have spent a lot more time there.
... and as I had learned, the Harry Potter bookstore is open an hour early (9-10 am) for visitors to take pictures legally. Steve decided to stay in bed, but I got my butt to the bookstore. I was surprised how few people were there, and I got some really great pictures.
It was raining, but I forced Steve out and we walked around more, but slowly since the city is so hilly and we didn't want to slip and fall. We walked all the pedestrian mall roads, window shopped, passed ...

They don't eat tapas, restaurants open before 10pm, they don't close for siesta, the language is vastly different (thick and difficult to pickup) and most importantly it is home to both Port and Portuguese tarts: they are addictively yum!!! Arriving in Porto, the major city of Northern Portugal, the visual difference in the people along with the economy was vast. It was a bit ...
... never see again but who knows, perhaps one day our paths might cross again.
Another night to sleep in as we have a late afternoon flight to Lisbon where we spend the night before heading home. The only problem that remains is repacking our luggage.
So we say farewell to the city of Porto. Everyone agrees that it is a lovely destination worthy of a visit. We all enjoyed our time here.
