Welcome to “My A-Z of Portugal” Over the coming weeks, month’s and even years, yes years (it will probably take me that long to go through the alphabet) I will be researching and writing about different aspects of life in Portugal.

Hi there! Count me in with my first post from my Canadian A-Z: A is for AWESOME http://wp.me/p1J9Lk-O9!
I loved that post Lindsay! Brought back memories
Portugal is lovely (but so is Spain!) I just got back from a 10-day vatoaicn there on Sunday, actually. Try to go to Oporto if you can; it’s in the North, and is the home of Port (yum!). Lisbon, of course, and then it depends. There are really pretty beach and fishing towns along the Lisbon coast (Cascais, Estoril), some really great historical sites to the north of Lisbon (Mafra, Alcobaca, Batalha) and southeast (Evora). Or if you want to be REALLY a beach bum, you could go to the southern coast, in the Algarve (I’ll bet it’s going to be super expensive, though).Um just make sure to 1) see a fado show in Lisbon, 2) go out in the Bairro Alto neighborhood (lisbon also), 3) have a wine/port tasting, and 4) drink lots of water!
Thanks – was beginning to feel a bit left out 🙂
Oh Julie I’m so sorry. I added your link in the post and forgot to add it in the list. 😳 I’m just working out the best place to keep the link-backs to everyones URLS so they are all in one place. I think if the blogger has an A-Z page I will link back to that otherwise I will add the link to their blog. Sitting here with a nice cuppa procrastinating LOL 🙂 The last thing I want to do is miss anyone out. thanks for letting me know!
Hi Julie, have added your link!
