Wanderlust: Portugal

We're going on vacation to Mexico in about three and a half weeks but I honestly don't know if I can wait that long.  I'm having some serious wanderlust.  These days, I'm dreaming about Portugal.  I've never been so it really is just a daydream, but it goes a little something like this...

... I would start the day with a lovely walk down an old Portuguese street ...

... and maybe stop at a cafe for breakfast.  I'm sure there's one just around the corner.

After a little caffeine boost, The Boyfriend and I would pick a spot under one of these lovely umbrellas and read a book.  Or two.  Or three.  Whatever!  We're on vacation - we can spend the whole day reading on the beach if we want.

Then, on our way back into town, we'll get lost and wander down a forgotten part of the beach.

Once we finally figure out how to get back, we'll be way too tired to walk uphill.  We'll take a streetcar instead.

After a short afternoon nap, we'll check out the local architecture...

...and the lovely scenic vistas.

And, finally, we'll have a private little dinner outdoors and rest up for the next day's adventure!

  5. Oh my goodness! Your post just made my day. You gave me a little vacation in the middle of my crazy obnoxious day! Thanks! I love vacation daydreaming!

  6. i spent a fair amount of time in Madeira Portugal and, oh my darling, you've never known such a love until you've drank sangria while listening to a street performer playing the flute and people passing you speaking a glorious language you don't understand. GO!

  7. so unfair of you to post something so envy evoking.

  13. i have a little thing for portugal, too...there is something so charming about it :) xoxoxo brynn

  14. I always have a chronic case of wanderlust. I just want to go everywhere. Now. Lately, Portugal has been creeping up the list, this post has just nudged it a bit higher.

    I totally get the 'hurry up!' feeling for a holiday - I've still got six months to hang out for Vietnam and it's rumble strutting me! (see what i did there?!)

    Mexico! Sounds awesome, can't wait to see your photos.
