Seems like I’ve lost all my creativity judging by the title of this post 😀 Nevermind, let’s recap my last day in Porto. I took my time and started my day around noon. I felt a bit better than the day before. I wanted to visit Jardins do Palácio de Cristal (Crystal Palace Gardens), the place my couchsurfing host had recommended to me.(more…)
When I came back from Braga my couchsurfing host told me to move out of his place the following day. He rented his appartement on airbnb to someone for the weekend. I had no other choice than to go to a hostel. I found one in the city centre, it was called Sport Hostel. I don’t really remember how I liked the place as I was just happy to find somewhere cheap to sleep last minute. I was feeling like shit that day so when I arrived to the hostel I immediately fell asleep. I slept for few hours. When I woke up I had that familiar feeling when travelling: ”Where am I? Who am I?” Do you know what I mean? 😀 I was feeling a bit better so I went for a walk.(more…)
I don’t really know where to start with my Porto trip. I was blown away with the beauty of this Portuguese city. My first introduction to the city (apart from my couchsurfer’s house and metro lol) was grandiose church Igreja do Carmo & Igreja dos Carmelitas (Carmo and Carmelitas Church) which is actually two churches. They are separated by a very narrow house. Apparently, the purpose of this house was to prevent any contact between nuns and monks.
