2 Days in Portugal

A few weeks ago (Ok...about a month ago...) we were fortunate enough to find the CHEAPEST FLIGHTS EVER (if you ever want to travel around Europe, check out Ryanair and Easyjet. It's magical) to Porto, Portugal.

Porto is a beautiful city on the Atlantic coast and a river, which I guess makes up for the fact that it was built more or less on what, after 2 days of walking all over, feels like the side of a cliff.

Our first stop was the Lello bookshop, which is considered one of best bookstores in the world (also, apparently J.K. Rowling used to go there to write the first Harry Potter book when she lived in Portugal).

We spent a lot of time walking all over, seeing old buildings covered in tiles, markets, and the beach.

I just got back to Oviedo after two and a half weeks of traveling around Italy and Germany during spring break. I'll get going on uploading those pictures pretty soon!
