Fourth Stop, Porto

After 4 wonderful nights in Lisbon, it was time to move on to Porto which is in the North of Portugal. I decided to take CP (Comboios de Portugal) train line from Lisbon to Porto. The train ride was about 3 hours which was comfortable and went by quickly. During my extended trips, I mostly stay in Hostels but mid-trip I like to book an AirBNB so I can have some privacy and to wash my clothes without paying for it. I got to Porto slightly early so my AirBNB wasn’t ready for a couple of hours so I walked around for a bit taking pictures. Thankfully, the place I was staying at was only a block away from the river.

Language learning enhanced my travel experience and it can for you

Humbling experiences rarely happen in a persons life but when you experience it, it can have a great affect. One of those experiences for me has been learning a new language, more specifically, learning German. I believe most people I run into would say “I wish I knew a second language” but it’s difficult to make that next step into actually doing it. I’ve realized that learning a new language is like losing weight…everyone wants to do it and it’s very challenging but when you make progress it’s extremely rewarding. Learning a language is more than just another form of communication and I learned this first hand.

Why Berlin should be on your shortlist

You ever have that feeling of deja vu? I swear I have it every time I tell a friend that I’m going to Berlin and their response is inevitably “Again?”…yes AGAIN. I never have a chance to really explain in detail why I love Berlin and why I keep going back to this wonderful city. First let me state that I’m biased to Germany in general. I took an interest in the German language which led for me to meet native German speakers and to eventually go to Germany. Even with me being biased, I still have great reasons why Berlin should be somewhere on your shortlist if you’re planning to go to Europe.

It’s official…booked 16 nights in Europe!

It’s been over a year of traveling and my experiences have been life changing for me. I’ve met so many people and I told myself that I’ll do my best to keep those relationships no matter where they may be from. While I was in Munich, one of the cool people I met was a guy named Ruben from Amsterdam. He mentioned he never went to Berlin so when I proposed the idea of partying in Berlin for the weekend, he was game.

Of course while I’m in Europe, I want to see other places. I recently found out that I had more time off I can use this year…so I decided to do another 16 night bounce around Europe like I did last year.

So here is the game plan:
