Uff, I finally finished editing the holiday photos~ *yay* As usual, I took too many pictures *g* so that’s why I am going to show you just the highlights of my journey. Are you ready for my travel diary about Portugal? Then let’s discover the west part of Europe! Hmmm… where should I start? (。・ε・`。) Actually, I never thought that I would go to Portugal this year until my Portuguese friend asked me, if I would like to join him and his girlfriend to their homeland. I wasn’t sure if I should say yes or no, because March isn’t the best time for me to take days off – I have heaps of work and preparations to do during this period, but since my boss confirmed my vacations, I finally said YES. (＊≧▽≦）ｂｂ So our journey started on Friday, 14 March 2014 at Basel Airport. It was the first time that I left Switzerland from Basel. My standard airport is in Zurich. In addition, it was also the first time that I booked a flight with Easyjet (I normally don’t fly Easyjet… I feel quite insecure （￣□￣＃）). Well, the flight ticket was very very cheap, BUT, for your suitcase you have to pay extra (60 CHF = ~50$ for one baggage of 20kg) and during your flight you won’t get any snacks or drinks for free. Everything has to be paid extra. Honestly, I am not a big fan of this low cost carrier… (￢O￢｀)
Anyway, we had a busy program in Portugal: Visiting friends and family of my Portuguese friend, we went to Freita’s mountain, visited Coimbra, enjoyed some hours at Porto and even had a day trip to Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal. Eating and sightseeing were our main activities. へ(´∀｀へ)
I had a wonderful week and enjoyed every single day in this beautiful country. At this point, I would like to thank my lovely companions for showing me all the magnificent places in Portugal! I would definitely be lost without their assistance. Thank you so much! ♥
PS. some of the pictures were made by my friend Helder ~ thank you for sharing some of your pictures!
