Up North. 

After our days in Porto we drove up above to stay a few more days in Peneda-Gerês.

The North was as I remembered it: small scary-ish roads with amazingly beautiful landscapes all around. It’s unite amazing that after searching for these precious views in so many other countries, other than ours, we can find gems like these in our own backyard.

We stayed at Casas de Campo, in a small rocky village where we could hear nothing but birds, and the occasional vehicle going through the very narrow street.

We had a wonderful wonderful time, and it was the perfect escape from the chaotic city.




Akira was definitely enjoying himself everytime there was water around.

And these things, for the international readers, were once used to collect and keep freshly caught corn.


Isn’t this amazing?      

And we even had time to go to the beach!

We had a wonderful time and we’re definitely going back as soon as possible.

For now, we’re back home, where I’m gonna spend the rest of the week doing some spring cleaning in order to get everything ready for the baby.

Have a great day!

    Personally, I think that this is one of my fav posts so far. Wonderful and lovely pictures – it really feels like being there. I have been to Geres a couple of times and is a very special place. Was great to “come back”. ; ) thank you

    Hope everything is well and on track <3
