Trip to Porto

I know, it’s been over a week since my last post but I promise, I’ll make it up to you guys ūüėČ The last few days I visited, together with my boyfriend, the lovely city of Oporto (or Porto) in the Northern part of Portugal. Since the exams were over, we wanted to treat ourselves with something fun and what’s better than a little city trip to do that?! We’ve especially enjoyed the nice weather: the sun shone constantly and it was between 15 and 20 degrees, what more could you wish for? Besides that, the food was yummie: I ate lots of fish, and the hotel (B&B Hotels) was really nice and comfy, I’d¬†definitely¬†recommend it to you. The first three days we stayed in Oporto to check out the little stores, have drinks on terraces and just stroll through the tiny streets. We also rented bikes and rode all the way to the coast (takes about an hour) and we had the best fish ever there. The fourth day we took the train to the picturesque town of Guimaraes, the city where Portugal was born, and rode in horse chariot through the Medieval streets and we visited an ancient castle. The fifth and last day, we took the plane back home, to cold and rainy Brussels.¬†
