Weekend in Porto, Portugal

Portugal is one of my favourite places in Europe and so a weekend trip to Porto was a must!

I flew in on Saturday morning and left on Monday morning, so got to spend 2 full days in this beautiful port city. I stayed with Helena’s friends, Mariana and Thiago who were extremely hospitable and Helena also joined from Lisboa. It was such a nice weekend to catch up, explore, eat and drink!

Some of the things we did are below in photos – enjoy!
