All good things must come to an end.
15 days, more km than we thought at the beginning that took us to many amazing Portuguese spots both known and off-the-path, around 4 gained pounds, 2 old friends I had met in India and had the awesome chance of sharing this once in a lifetime experience with and 2 other new friends I hope to be crossing paths with again soon, uncountable delicious Portuguese dishes tasted, 6 stunning pools, 5 awe-inspiring sunsets, 5 great and 6 meh ones, more than 20 Portuguese towns to explore, around 100 Instagram postings which gathered around 5000 likes, many places to come back to within a year, some recipes to implement back home, 10000 pics on my 4 memory cards, 3 unforgettable beaches, 2 DIY laundries, Porto tonic as a reference drink, laranxa laminada as the winner dessert, more cataplanas de peixe and marisco that I can count, endless seafood and food experiences for life. THANKS, PORTUGAL!
I will be back in no time. Seriously. This time you’ve truly got my heart.
Ready to start #portugalfoodstories last day! Actually, last two hours since I will be soon on a plane to Madrid and finally Bologna to attend #TBDI2014 and more fun Italy stuff! On a side note – and taking to consideration that after having oysters last night my stomach decided not to like them at all and offered me a looong night so I can’t really think of food right now – Algarve (pictured above these lines), getting to experience Portugal with @thetinytaster @gaiapassarelli @candidsbyjo and @willrunforfoodtv , pools and Portuguese sunsets were the highlights of my trip. Thanks Portugal! We’ll soon be back again 🙂

I came to Portugal to take part in a 2 weeks food tour around the country after winning the Portugal Food Stories contest by Aptece along with other 4 international bloggers. Anyway, all the opinions here are my own.
The food in Portugal is really very good especially fish food
