Arrived in Porto this afternoon and I am so glad that I chose to start my trip here. The weather is unreal right now (this week's forecast: upper 70s during the day and 60s at night), and although it's the second largest city in Portugal, it has a completely different feel than Lisbon. A little slower..? Older...? Hard to describe just yet.
My head is still spinning a little from the last few days and I haven't actually slept yet since flying out of NJ so putting together my plan of attack will need to wait until tomorrow. I'll post again later in the week when I'm not a groggy mess...just wanted to touch base that I have arrived safely.
