Holidays, holidays, holidays.
My name is Paulo Tavares, I come from Porto in the North of Portugal. Two things I’ve always loved are travel and holidays. When I started primary school I was always looking forward to school holidays. I just couldn’t wait. Holidays meant I could go on long trips with my grandfather to the Alentejo region where he would go to buy cork for his cork factory in the north of Portugal and that’s how I started to discover all the small villages and towns all over Portugal. To enjoy delicious meals in family run restaurants in obscure places. As a student I worked and travelled all over Europe during my summer holidays so I could experience different cultures. I have fluent English, French and German and if I had time I’d learn a few more.
I’m Susan and I’ve lived in Portugal for years, I’ve also been a holidaymaker for several years. If you were to ask me what are my favourite things about Portugal it has to be the people and the literature. That said I love the café culture, the light and of course a glass of Port wine. I’m also fascinated by how such a small country can be so diverse from provence to provence. I hope you enjoy the content and that it will inspire you to visit Portugal and return and return and return. Seja bem- vindo.
