Porto: the old city

Although it is sometimes in the shadow of the more famous Lisbon, the second largest city of Portugal deserves more. Maybe it does not have the most amazing monuments on the continent, but the natural setting, the bridges, the sometimes crumbling buildings and its bohemian atmosphere makes Porto to special ! A… and not forget the famous Porto wine. That would really make you love the city :). read more…

Guimaraes – almost live

Things to do in Guimaraes: visit the old citadel

Ufff… I just returned to Bucharest. It was a too short night flight to be able to sleep too long – it takes less than 4 hours to fly from Lisbon to Bucharest… not enough to sleep, although, Thanks God I had plenty of conditions – all 2 seats next to me where empty, so I had almost a flat bed. Such a luxury was not available in the business class. However, in the last 2-post TBU conference days, I went to visit 2 gems close to Porto – Guimaraes and Braga. Today, I will write about Guimaraes, the European Capital of Culture in 2012 and I promise to come back with a story on Braga, as well (which I loved it more :). But, let’s go and show you some places in this special town.

I’ve been in Porto and the region for the last few days… and I really enjoy… the mix between old and new, between ruined and restored, between water and hills is just amazing. The whole bohemian atmosphere around the two banks of the mighty Douro river would definitely touch you ! I promise to come back with more stories about this wonderful city, but until, then, I just want to show you some sights of Porto… just a sample !

    Mumbai Escape at Ramada Powai Hotel

    Mumbai is one of the most interesting cities of the billion+ nation of India. It does not have the imperial history of Delhi, it does not have the princely elegance of Jaipur or Udaipur, it does not have the holly spirit of Varanasi and you cannot find any monument which can rival Taj Mahal of […]
