1 | Lisbon + FARO + SevilleOne of my favorite cities in Europe, Lisbon, is bursting with culture, great food, incredibly charming streets -the list goes on and on- there’s so much to see and taste within the city you’ll be hard-pressed to pick your favorites. Not far away, the UNESCO town of Sintra is a beautiful and worthy day trip. Take a 3 hour train south to Faro, in the Algarve region world-renowned for it’s food and positively stunning seaside (ranked with some of the best beaches in the world). Carry on by bus to Seville for an immersion into a world of tapas, sangria and flamenco. Don’t miss Giralda Tower and Plaza de Espana.

I had the best vacation ever But, I would never go to Portugal again because the cobble stoned narrow streets have me rapt in a daze, And because the the Chapel of Bones, the very well preserved Old Towns and the old “end of the world”, Sagres took me centuries back in time. It was truly mesmerizing to hear the stories of the sailor’s from the locals.I would never go to Portugal again because it is so very difficult to leave the historical Old Towns and Gorgeous Beaches and to bid goodbye to the amazing locals (who are very very hospitable and helpful) and to accept the fact that there is no other place like Portugal,to realize you will miss the awesome beauty and vibes of Algarve.“I would never go back to Portugal because the Homecoming is Awful!!! ” (Although I come back to a place like Amsterdam).

Portugal is one of the offbeat Beach destinations which has some exotic beaches on earth. Unlike the crowded beaches of the other European places like Ibiza, Croatia and more, it is one of the hidden gems unexplored by many. Which means, there might be a chance of you having the beach all by yourself !!! Yes, you got it right.As an Indian it was exciting just to be in Portugal, where Vasco Da Gama belongs as he discovered the Sea Route to India.I chose Portugal as my next destination because of the Mediterranean climate and also because it’s not too touristy. It is best to explore a place without the hustle bustle of the tourists flocking in huge numbers during the summers.We took an early morning flight to Faro from Amsterdam. On our three hour flight we managed to catch up on some sleep for most of the journey. After reaching we moved to Lagos in the western Algarve by taxi, the journey taking 55 Minutes(Not a cheap option though, but given a choice to choose either time or money, we didn’t want to loose out on time). We looked into the possibility of using the train/bus but departures are infrequent and we would have wasted most of the day getting to our resort.
