Rome is one of the most traveled cities in Europe. It’s iconic, quite literally full of history and is where you’ll find one of the largest pilgrimage sites in the world. It’s hectic, sometimes insanely so and it’s a little grubby in places. The world’s smallest country is nestled in the middle of it and it’s often considered one of the top places to visit in your lifetime.
I love Barcelona, it’s that simple. I’ve been back to the metropolitan city a good few times now and it continues to grow on me more each time I’m there. It’s timeless with a fantastic buzz that reverberates through the city. The Catalonian people are beyond friendly, the pinchos are crazily moreish and there is so much to see and do.
Our decision to explore Porto was the result of a much-needed vote. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, we were leaving Fatima and couldn’t agree whether or not to carry on up North to Porto or make our way back across Spain to Madrid. It might sound like a bit of a no-brainer but we had taken some seriously naff weather over the last couple of weeks in Portugal and it wasn’t looking any better in the near future, so we turned to our Instagram and Facebook friends to let them decide. It was an almost unanimous vote for Porto.
