travel announcement: #LTcoast2coast (part two!)

theromanticWith one last week of nothing to do (thank you, student life), and while the wino is kicking back on the Jersey Shore, we’ll be waving from the other side of the Atlantic for part two of #LTcoast2coast…

That’s right. As is always the way, our time in France has officially flown by. With only a few more weeks to go, the hubs and I are making the most of our time left. By leaving.

To be fair, we’ve done a pretty killer job of ticking everything off our Frenchie bucket list—Normandy, Champagne, Colmar, Cassis: check, check, checkity check.

For one week, we’ll be on a whistlestop tour of a country that has long eluded us. We’ll start in Lisbon, then drive to Alentejo, and finally, make our way down to the Algarve. There, we’ll wrap up with one last (presumably epic) night in Lisbon. I have my trusty Mrs. O already feeding me tons of tips, and stays lined up at some pretty killer hotels that I can’t wait to share.

 Tune in beginning June 25 as I kick off #LTcoast2coast and cheers the wino from directly across the pond.

 So! Bom dia*, darlings, and stay tuned.


the romantic

*I always assumed “bom dia” was an expression of excitement, and then I realized… does it mean good morning? What’s Portuguese for “WOOHOO!” ?

    UH OH.. you better do right by Portugal or else you will have Mrs. O to answer to! 😛 Can’t wait to see what crazy antics and fun you have on this trip. You know it wont compare to the “Perfect Storm” we experienced on Lake Como.

    I thought you were moving to France permanently. You guys are such jet setters, I cannot keep up with where you are living let alone where you travel. Look forward to reading the posts.

      nah dude, keep up 😉 for awhile we actually had no idea where we were moving post-france, so it was a possibility we could have stayed here longer. but nay, moving in august!

    I’ve only been to Portugal one and that was to Algarve – I’d love to see Lisbon and some of the other parts of Portugal and I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time, especially with your itinerary being planned in such reliable hands!! Enjoy Portugal! Look forward to seeing more posts 🙂
