Porto part 1

But when my friend Jayna said that she was going and invited me to come along, I thought I’d give the city another chance. I hadn’t really travelled anywhere for a while, so I was desperate to get out of London and see something different.

It also helped that flights were cheap and Porto itself is not very expensive either.

The weekend started with an early Friday morning Easyjet experience. Always a pleasure.
