I want to be an expat in Porto.
Of all the cities we visited on our 3-week Spain and Portugal odyssey, Porto was my favorite. It's attractive without being sterile or merely "quaint", retaining the feel of a real city where people actually live, not merely visit. (Me moving there and being all like "HI PLS GIVE ME AN AWESOME EXPAT EXPERIENCE OK PORTO!" would probably ruin that feel, but that's beside the point.)
We started the day with a cruise on the River Douro, with the sun occasionally peeking out from behind the clouds.
Across the river from downtown are all the warehouses where Port wine is aged.
We visited the home of Taylor's (marketed as Taylor Fladgate in the U.S.) for a tour and tasting.
The tasting room was very Le Cirque.
Verdict: after trying the 10 Year, 20 Year, and Late Bottled Vintage varieties, I liked Late Bottled Vintage the best. The cheapest one. That's ya girl.
Afterwards we crossed back over the river and explored the downtown area. You will notice that there are no pictures of the Harry Potter bookstore. That is because they come down against photography with an iron fist. This includes sneaky "oh I'm just texting" photography. They aren't dumb (they read books).
Next stop: Spain!
