Although I was only in Porto for a couple of hours I thought it’d be a waste to spend them at the train station so I grabbed my camera and went for a little wander. The Estádio do Dragão stadium was a most welcome surprise while the local delicacy ‘Francesinha’ invigorated my dormant taste buds into much needed action. The beer and tomato sauce sounds like a combination that really shouldn’t work but hey, don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
I also arrived in Portugal at the most opportune time. The national team had just made it to the Euro 2016 final against France and the mood was electric. I honestly think Portugese people are the most laid back and happy people in the world. If you told them a meteor was coming and they had 1 day left to live they’d probably shrug and continue having a laugh. A mindset I can totally get behind.
Getting lost around Porto allowed me to see the side of the city I bet many tourists don’t get to visit. From neighbourhoods with children playing five-a-side in the street to deserted beaches, I think my impromptu outing into Porto was a pretty successful one. Oh and by the way, if you like this new style of photography I’m trying out then I’m sure you’re gonna love the next few articles I have hidden up my sleeve. No more muted tones, it’s all about colour, colour, colour!
