After a long while away from Europe, it was difficult to choose where to begin our return to it. Our research decided it for us: Portugal’s Allure as a Best Vacation Destination did not disappoint!
[Edited: June 18, 2020]
One of the attractions of a Best Vacation Destination is the food and, boy, our experience was the best in Portugal. Fresh, healthy, and with amazing presentation, it is a good thing we walked as much as we did or we would have had to purchase an entire new wardrobe upon returning home.
We visited the Monastery of the Jeronimos with its insanely ornate arches and ceilings and colorful tiles. So many ideas for applique’ projects upon returning home! You know how much I like applique’ – it all began when I purchased the book Simply Successful Applique by Jeanne Sullivan… When you read it you will understand my love for this technique.
We drove to Carcavelos Beach for lunch one day, located in the Lisbon-Estoril-Cascais coastline. Dreamy!
I am glad we did not rush to see the entire country during this trip – it would have been impossible to appreciate Portugal’s history and charm. We spent our second week in the Algarve region. Wait till you see it in tomorrow’s post and you will agree with Portugal’s Allure as a Best Vacation Destination!
Stay tuned for part 2. Until then,
