I recently returned from a trip to Portugal with my sister. We planned this trip a while ago, when I was sure I would be moving to Madrid, as an opportunity to travel but way more as a way to see each other and hang out after an extended period of sisterly withdrawal. My sister had been working on her PhD research all summer so this was a vacation for her, and I had been sin familia for a couple of months so this was a really important fix for me.
We both agreed that we weren’t interested in going to museums or seeing the inside of more than a few churches, so spent most of our time walking around neighbourhoods and eating and shopping. I am sure the museums in Portugal are fantastic and I am sure there were lots of fabulous insides that we didn’t see, but we tried really hard to be confident in our decision to prioritize the other bits instead.
