I traveled to Spain to meet up with my friend who came from Taiwan. It was our ‘central’ meeting place. We traveled around the country before we journeyed to Portugal. We spent a few days in chilly Granada in November. What a beautiful historic city complete with gypsy caves where we stayed. Thanks airbnb!
I was memorized by the vibrant colors in Portugal, especially Peniche, which is a sleepy little fishing town that just happens to have amazing waves! My friend and I also had the opportunity to tour around Lisboa with our airbnb hosts. They showed us some beautiful places, including an old monastery out in the cork tree woods, and an impressive castle with gardens and underground tunnels.
