Elysabeth Alfano, an american traveler journalist, falls in love with Portugal and is not shy about weaving her compliments. For her, Portugal is a country with “people full of warmth and passion, more relaxed than their Spanish neighbors”.
In her article for the Huffington Post, the reporter commends Portugal and emphasizes its fish and seafood, the beaches, monuments, Fado music and, as might be expected, the wines – especially the green wine.
Elysabeth started her trip in Porto and went through Coimbra, Lisbon, Sintra and Obidos, finishing in Serra de Monchique (Algarve). Portugal, according to the reporter, is “everything we expect and more”.
