Portugal in Winter

In 2012, my closest friends and I decided to go all out for our 30th birthdays. Spread out around the world, we were obliged to choose a central destination, with the added stipulation that none of us had been there before—a tall order when your group consists of seven passionate travelers! After back-and-forth emails and Skype sessions, we agreed to Portugal, a beautiful country offering an array of experiences in one. We explored a bustling city, hiked through lush green forests, and waded into the ocean.
