Two years ago, my mother and my stepfather went to Portugal, especially to Lisbon, which is the main city. They felt in love with this city and decided to move from France to there. They were both retried, so they wanted to enjoy their lives!
When they told me their wishes, I was so excited because it meant that I could go there and visit too! So of course, I helped them moving. At first, they wanted to be at the core of Lisbon, but then they visited a little city, just next to Lisbon, called Cascais and this is where they finally decided to settle in.
This city is so beautiful! It’s like a little village just near the main city, but completely different. Either in winter or summer, it’s always enjoyable. There is the sea at 10 minutes by bike, the ocean is really beautiful, with a lot of waves!
Portugal is very famous in Europe for for surfers. There is a city called Nazaré, where waves can reach 98 feet high!
Then, people are awesome! They are always ready to help, whoever you are, whatever you do, they are fantastic!
In France, the didn’t have a good image of Portugal, I thought that it would be a poor country, with nothing really interesting to see, but it is absolutely all the contrary!
They have a great culture and ancient history. Each city is different from the other, this is really an impressive country. There are hills and beaches, cities and countrysides, gardens and trendy spots. It’s a very little country but all is concentrated inside!
Here are some pictures of different places: Lisbon, Sintra, Porto and Cascais.
And you, have you ever been to Portugal ? Or is it a destination that may attract you ?
Can’t wait to hear (or read!) your thoughts!
