I am back!
It's been a few weeks of nonstop movement.
To start off, I'll share some pictures from Porto shown from my friend Maria's perspective. I love getting to know a city as if I were actually from there or living there. It's fun to see all the touristy stuff but the real magic happens when you dive into the real deal: the day to day activities of someone who actually knows the place like the palm of their hands.
Little spots like Rota do Chá where you can find the most delicious cheese and mustard sandwiches as well as a huge selection of incredible teas, or a stroll around the unexplainable art pieces in Museu de Serralves and getting lost in its gardens, walking into Livraria Lello & Irmão, one of the worls oldest and best libraries, or having a truffle pizza at PortaRossa and even trying my new favorite drink, the ponche, among many new discoveries, all sum up to a wonderful experience! 
Thank you and your amazing family for all the love and hospitality, Maria <3

Estoy de regreso!
Han sido unas semanas de no parar!
Para comenzar, os dejo con unas fotos de Porto visto desde la perspectiva de mi amiga Maria.
Me fascina viajar y conocer ciudades como si verdaderamente fuese de ahí o viviese ahí. Es divertido y a veces necesario tragarte toda la turisteada, pero la verdadera magia ocurre cuando te pierdes en el día a día de un autentico ciudadano.
Pequeños escondites como Rota do Chá donde encuentras el mejor sandwich de queso y mostaza (tal y como me gusta) ademas de una selección inmensa de deliciosos tés, o un paseo por las inexplicables obras de arte en el Museu de Serralves, perderme por Livraria Lello & Irmão, una de las mejores y mas antiguas librerías del mundo, o probar una pizza de trufa en PortaRossa y lo mejor de todo, sobredosis de ponche, entre muchos otros descubrimientos, suman a la ecuación perfecta para una increíble experiencia.
