Welcome to Sintra’s Park and National Palace of Pena

Welcome to Sintra’s Park and National Palace of Pena

This is not a post about any park and palace. This is a post about the most beautiful park and palace you may have the chance to lay your eyes on. Once at its doorsteps, your imagination about the fairytales castles you used to read as a child will be awaken.

Situated in the middle of an exotic vegetation, Pena Palace stands out from afar. Continue reading

Short escape to Algarve – Where Two Go To

Short escape to Algarve – Where Two Go To

May was also our choice for a short sunny gateaway. Continue reading
