Day 1: On the Road in Porto

IMG_4743

We finally made it to Porto after a roundabout flight to London.  Having heard so much about this quiet city from my sister, I couldn’t wait to see it for myself and had high expectations. The city itself reminds me of a lot of other European cities, but the difference is that it’s laid back and not overrun with tourists.  I immediately fell in love with the rambling cobblestone streets lined with charming colorful apartments and their balconies filled with flowers.  The city is small and walk-able, a definite bonus.  Even with the rolling hills it was still easy to get around.  We spent the first day exploring the city and immersing ourselves in the local culture.  It doesn’t hurt that we are staying in an apartment instead of a hotel, making us feel even more like a local.
