As I sit here in my cozy Airbnb in Lisbon, one of the most colorful and vivacious cities in Europe, I can’t help but feel anxious to get my first group trip in this electric country underway!
A few months ago, I partnered with TrovaTrip to announce I’d be opening up a group trip exclusively for my audience and blog readers!
This has been a long time goal of mine, to invite the people who have been following this crazy journey of mine since I first started traveling in 2012, alongside to experience some of the amazing experiences I’ve had while abroad.
As an ambivert, I can’t wait to bond with all the amazing souls who put their trust in this trip and booked a ticket and spot, as well as have deep conversations over wine.
The more I travel, the harder it is to think I should be doing anything else in life. When I’m on the road I feel most at home, as ironic as that sounds. Because being “home” to me is more of a feeling than a place.
The itinerary that Trova has got lined up is legit, and though it’s my second time this country, it’ll be my first time exploring it properly, as I only got to see Lisbon when I visited last in 2014.
Here are some of the amazing things we have lined up over the next 10 days, so stay tuned to my Instagram to follow along!
Arrival date is tomorrow, so we’ll start out with an evening social with bottomless drinks and dinner at one of the hundreds of gorgeous terraces that make up Lisbon’s skyline.
On Saturday, I’ll open up the trip with my How To Be A Better Traveler workshop — something I feel extremely passionate about as it’s so important to remain humble and respectful when traversing through the countries of others.
On Sunday, there’s an optional day excursion to a nearby town called Sintra, which is a perfect day trip to make to explore more of the beauty Portugal has to offer.
Our next stop is the colorful city of Porto, the north of Portugal, where we’ll get to indulge in some of the best wine in the world, with a tour through Douro Valley to visit three vineyards and
get plastered learn more about the wine-making process.
After a couple days in Porto, we’ll head down to Lagos to soak in the beach vibes and explore Sagres, the southernmost point of Europe, which has an end-of-the-world feel with its sea-carved cliffs and fortress high above the ocean below.
There, I’ll be leading a workshop on How To Maximize Your Photography While Traveling, teaching everyone the best ways to capture those special moments while you travel!
People can also partake in surf lessons, explore some caves, or just relax as the trip is coming to an end.
Portugal makes such a great destination for a group trip and I’m excited to meet the gang tomorrow and get this trip underway!Wanna travel with me? Let me know the country of your dreams in the comments of this post! Click To Tweet
