Only question I have about Portugal is visiting this time of year? Then again, not like it’s cool in NYC or CVille right now
My girlfriend was just there and said it was insanely hot.
But look, if someone is buying me a trip to Portugal any time of year, I’m not turning it down. Port, Albariño, Garnaxta for days.
We were there in March. Lisbon, Nazare, and Porto. Great trip and the food and wine were good, cheap, and plentiful.
There is a 2-Star Navy Rear Admiral that is stationed in downtown Lisbon. The position is the US military attache to the Iberian Peninsula…
My 4th year roommate’s father was in this position and when I spoke to him about it, he told me it was the best job in the Navy.
El Bigote is a famous shrimp restaurant in the Faro region… and the Azores, where Lajes Field (US Air Force) is located, is a hidden gem of a location for pristine beaches and very few people. Almost bought property there about 10 years ago because it was so cheap.
One of the best trips I’ve ever taken was to Portugal. I still dream about the stuffed stone crab at Cervejaria Ramiro in Lisbon.
My dad flew through the Azores pretty regularly back in the day. One of his favorite places.
