Every few months, I fly out to Porto, Portugal, to visit the family run factory, where our handbags are made.
Whilst I was there last month, I took some time out to explore Porto and what it has to offer. (Amazingly, these photos were all taken in the same day, although you'd never know looking at the changes in weather!)
Here are some of my highlights:
Setting off for a day of exploring...
Where the Douro river meets the Atlantic at Foz Do Douro
Gardens in Foz Do Douro
Taking the tram from Foz Do Douro into the centre.
Beautiful architecture and tiles at every turn
Colourful offerings at Mercado do Bolhao
Confectionary shop outside the Mercado Do Bolhao
Taking in the spectacular views from the bridge across the Ribeira
The Dom Luis bridge, seen from the south bank
Walking along the south side of the Douro, towards the fishing village of Afurada, before hopping on the water taxi back to the other side of the river.
