2022 Portugal Trip Report


I’m going to post a complete report of our recent Portugal trip over the next few weeks. I’ve split it a bit differently than just a day-by-day travelogue. I’m going to start with our planning process and then review the flights to Portugal and arrival in Lisbon. Then I will review each place we spent significant time, each hotel we stayed in, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a Douro Valley tour and where we stopped on our drives through Portugal. Finally, I’ll review how we switched our flights home at the last minute and how those flights worked out. I hope you enjoy the posts and that all of this helps you plan your own trip to Portugal. Here are the planned posts which I will update with links as they go live:
