  1. Ah, your photos are so gorgeous! I used to live in England but I’ve been in America for the past 6 years for school, and I’ve been pining for Europe recently. These photos just make me want to go back even more, so, so pretty.

    1. Thanks Shannon. I think most places look lovely when the sun is shining – it’s just a shame the sun doesn’t shine very often in England!

  2. Gorgeous!! I love the building with the blue and white. What a charming town. I’ve been only once — for a soccer game. I wish I’d been able to tour around!

    1. Thanks Abby, I love that building too and especially with the sunlight shining behind it. I bet it was a great place to watch a soccer game too.

  3. Could help myself and had to take a peak at this. Porto looks amazing, your photos and brilliant Monica and I am now totally gutted I couldn’t make it out there with everyone else ๐Ÿ™

    Ah well, next year maybe.

  4. Beautiful photos Monica! Love the sunset on the beach, that’s my favourite one and of course… THE FOOD ๐Ÿ™‚ My stomach’s crumbling now x ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Monica, great photos youยดve whet my appetite in more ways than one. Porto is a city I long to visit and drive there I will one day.

    Lovely photos, like the presentation and thanks for making me drool.

  6. Brilliant! You have managed to capture all the wonderful aspects of Portugal, without saying a word. Pictures often speak more than words. Particularly like the last villa shot, looks so inviting!
