Where Shall We Go?

As I get prepared for my next trip to Europe, this time it is Portugal. I reflect on the things that make up a successful trip. I will fill you in on the details when I return! I have not been to Lisbon and beyond in over 40 years.

  1. A well-planned group, if you are with a tour, make sure the tour company puts like people together. There is nothing better than making life long friends through travel!
  2. Great art and architecture, go off the beaten path…in Europe, any church will provide beauty.
  3. Fabulous food & drink, learn about the culture through their specialties.
  4. Live like a local, dining, shopping and enjoying daily life like a local is the BEST part of traveling.
  5. Read and study your destinations before you go, you will get so much more out of your travels.
  6. Pack smartly, you will need the essentials and can buy what you forget to bring when you arrive. Some of my favorite purchases have been due to necessity.
  7. Take pictures…but be present in the moment! Enjoy being in this new and exciting environment, don’t miss out by taking selfies.

I will keep you all in the loop if you have any suggestions for Lisbon or Porto we would love to hear them.

Best, Celia
