Let’s take a trip to Porto!
My blogging friend, Louise, recently vacationed in Porto, Portugal’s second largest city. She kindly thought of me and sent two cheerful pieces from her travels–a brightly colored postcard and a bookmark that left me with a strong urge to take a trip to Porto!
The postcard features the Batalha 22 tram, one of the three “heritage” routes of the transportation collective in Porto, Sociedade de Transportes Colectivos do Porto (STCP).
The bookmark (probably) features the Ribeira neighborhood, a neighborhood filled with cafes, restaurants, homes, and a walkway along the Douro River.
The colorful buildings are so inviting!
These images offer a tiny glimpse of Porto. Louise’s photos tell a more comprehensive story, so be sure to check out her Porto blog posts, especially the one about the bookshop:
- Cais de Ribeira, Porto, Portugal …
- Livraria Lello…
- Gare de Sao Bento, Porto / Sao Bento Station, Porto…
Enjoy the trip!
