If I could move abroad tomorrow, Portugal would probably be my first stop. I have visited 4 times over the years, with my most recent trip in the fall of 2022.
Portugal has so much to offer, from the artsy city of Lisbon, to its slower paced sister city Porto. Head to the Douro Valley to experience wine culture, or the Algarve for the surf and beach scene.
In Portugal you can enjoy the freshest seafood, the flakiest custard tarts, and some of the best wine in the world (with a thriving natural wine scene).
Explore the Algarve
Striking cliffs, fresh fish, and great beaches. What else could you need? I visited the Algarve region during the off-season and absolutely fell in love!
