20 Reasons to Drop it All and Go to Portugal

 In Travel Tips

 Why Portugal?

Of the many awesome destinations across Western Europe, few compare to Portugal - specifically, the southwestern coast - the Algarve region. It’s as authentic as they come - elderly men grilling small fish over a fire on the patio, narrow streets lined with beautiful, classic architecture and beaches everywhere. Oh, and like most European destinations, you can drink pretty much anywhere. So fear not Mr/Miss public-alcoholic-drink consumer  - you’re welcome here.

If you’re a 20-something who wants to try out a more original itinerary than Rome and Paris, consider this. Just don’t forget the GoPro!

So without further ado, here are the 20 reasons drop it all and hop on a jet plane to Portugal.

1) Spanning landscapes that make for awesome Instagram posts
