    Porto

    October 6 in Portugal

    Unsere erste Stadion und das eigentlich nur aufgrund des günstigen Flugpreises, aber es hat sich gelohnt. Porto ist eine sehr schöne und überschaubare Stadt in der man sich schnell zu recht findet. Das Angebot an Portwein unendlich und die vielen kleinen Portweinkeller laden nur so zum probieren ein. Die Stadt kann man super zu Fuß erkunden und einen guten ersten Einblick in das portugiesische Leben gewinnen.Read more

    Transit

    January 31 in Portugal

    We left the hostel at 7 and got to the bus station at 7:30. It was so easy to get to the airport - bless you Barcelona. Totally stress free.

    Checked in no issues and went to have breakfast. Only one option - another $35 Burger King feed 😒😖

    Caught a plane. We snoozed. I love the celebratory music they (Ryanair) play upon landing.

    Got bags then caught a train 14 stops. We got out and walked the remaining 1.3km. All uphill. Standard. 😒

    Our host saw us coming and greeted us at the door. He gave us the walk through of everything then he left.

    We popped down to the supermarket to buy food for the next few days.
    Every one is super lovely.

    Less English here. Often signs have it in small writing underneath important signs but that hasn't been the case yet. Or at least not obviously. The train didn't have any English.

    THEY HAVE FRESH SLICED BREAD AND THIS IS THE GREATEST THING.

    Europe has given a new meaning to "best thing since sliced bread".
    Forever I have a new appreciation.

    Europe has sliced bread but it's long life..... same wirh all their milk.... no fresh boooo

    BUT PORTUGAL DOES YAYAYAYAYAY

    It was he best supermarket we have seen in a longggggg time.

    Went home and showered for the first time in ages haha

    Bath doesn't have a plug and I'm super devo about that.

    Our hard drive doesn't seem to work on the tv which is crap but it was playing Zac and Miri make a porno. Hilarious movie. Probably my favourite Seth Rogen film. It was in English too 🤗🤗🤗

    Napped haha

    Cooked lasagne or at least tried to. The power blew twice so we ended up turning the heater off and then it worked. Too many things on at once.

    Just chilling. ✌🏼

    Porto

    February 1 in Portugal

    What a great day. We did squat.

    I washed my hair and then we made eggs in the basket for lunch. Yummo.

    We went to the shops and bought more salad and that was the excitement for the day.
    We have just watched a bunch of tv.

    We had lasagne for dinner again with rocket.

    I hate to throw out the tomatoes unfortunately because the fridge froze everything and once a tomato has been frozen it tastes like ass. I learnt something today.

    Currently watching Speed. Good movie.

    Porto

    February 2 in Portugal

    Got up at 10 to speak to mum and dad. So tired lol
    Loved having the little heater on my feet though. Pleased the computer worked perfectly- it was being a bum in Ljubljana.
    Didn't talk long. Too sleepy haha

    Got up at 1.

    We popped down to the shops to buy more eggs for more eggs in baskets 🤗
    Smashed it. I'm obviously a natural cook.

    Yummo.

    I had an hour long shower. Got a complimentary shower cap so that is the best.
    New favorite thing - I'll need to buy a rainbow one when home.

    We did nothing.

    Made dinner - tortilla wraps.
    Had to unfreeze the avocado and sour cream in front of the heater lol.

    Avo was goooood.

    Currently talking to Laura - she is gonna be a real champ and book us bus tickets to her house when she gets off work.
    Well not her house at all - the closest bus is in Derry Londonderry which is in Northern Ireland. I have checked with her they don't check passports because it's still Ireland so our U.K. ban will not give us any issues lol
    She lives a whopping 67km away from Derry and will come pick us up.
    Bless her socks

    Porto

    February 4 in Portugal

    I tried sleeping on the floor during the night but that didn't work out cause the mat is spikey and uncomfortable.
    This bed is so flimsy and I'm just so scared it's gonna break like the one in Estonia 😂
    It makes sounds everytime you move an inch. I have no confidence in its stability.

    Had strawberries for breakfast.

    Today I finally got around to scrubbing the dirt off the arms of my white jacket - or at least made it look better.
    It took me a fair while - it was filthy! Lol

    I finally emailed uni. I can't for the life of me remember my username or password and that is what has made me take so long.
    I hope they get my email - it says to contact them through my account but I can't get in....

    Will wanted McDonald's (such a bad influence haha) so we walked 2km to get it to find a bunch of trees and garbage cans.
    Cool.

    Walked another 1km to find a shopping center and we bought it there.
    Cheap compared to other countries.

    Walked home and did a load of laundry.
    It took 5 hours 3 hour wash 2 hour dry!
    Bloody hell.
    Couldn't go to bed til it was done.

    Porto

    February 5 in Portugal

    God I miss home.
    I miss things that work lol.
    Today I tried showering for 30 minutes but the water just never got hot.
    Booooooo

    We went out for some Portuguese chicken or as they call it - Chicken.... 😅
    It was a very non touristy area.

    Won't lie, disappointed. Fantastic price but the chicken shop in Granville kicks this places ass.
    It was just normal chicken.
    It was funny eating chicken and chips in a proper resturant setting though haha

    Walked home.
    I tried showering again because I needed to wash my hair - I settled for semi warm.

    I have packed and we are now watching Big Bang.

    We grabbed a pizza before because we were gonna have cereal for dinner but the fridge froze the milk.

    I also registered for soccer. They needed payment before Feb 20th and as I won't be home Jess has Payed and I will pay her back in time.
    Outrageously expensive!!!!!
