Portugal 2013 - Part Two

on
Friday, June 21, 2013
We wandered our way through Fatima and Coimbra on a Wednesday afternoon - it was actually the first time I had been to the latter. Travelling is such a glorious experience, even if it's to places I've seen before. Here's to hoping new adventures are on the horizon.
 A delicious lunch my parents, aunt and I had in Fatima. I didn't realize how much I loved Portuguese food, until I moved to Chicago and discovered ZERO Portuguese restaurants exist. I was totally SPOILED for 22 years!!

I love this - the wine glass was the size of my head. Booya!
 
I'm still such a sucker for the typical old architecture of European cities. We spent a few hours frolicking through Coimbra, home of one the oldest universities in Europe (Universidade de Coimbra)
 
Don't you just love the little alleyways all over the place? They have the best boutiques!
So long, Portugal!

Cheers,
Chantelle

  1. these photos are so beautiful I've never been to Europe but every time I see photos I fall in love with the architecture there. I'm definitely going to go in the next few years, I simply can't live my life without travelling there.
    and that photo of you with the wine glass is hilarious I love it!
