72 hours in Portugal – part 1

As some of you may know, I spent three nights in Portugal at the end of March for a friend’s wedding. If it hadn’t been for the wedding, I wouldn’t have had the chance to discover such a beautiful place. I got to see so much in such a short space of time, so I was grateful for that.

I arrived on Thursday and as soon as I landed, my friends came to get me. After settling into my room at the hotel we were staying in, we set off to Setúbal. It’s a quiet city with pebbled streets and a port.

For dinner, we went to a restaurant along the port called Tasca da Fatinha. You can choose whatever fish you want and they grill it for you. It’s all fresh produce. Some of us shared prawns for starters, which looked and tasted delicious. I ordered the salmon. It was my first time having it, and I loved it, especially with the grilled, smokey taste.

Unfortunately, the chips were a bit dry, but the salmon made up for that.

We stayed out late, and found this beautiful building on the way back to the coach station — the Monastery of Jesus of Setúbal. I went to bed the latest I have done in a very long time, but I also had the most fun I’ve had in a long while, so it was all worth it.
