I love watching the Travel and Living Channel. I have seen a lot of beautiful places that one could go to if you have the money, but if you were to ask me where would I go if I am to escape this summer, without batting an eyelash, I would say Spain and Portugal. I have never been to both of these places but there’s something about them that had me dreaming of visiting for a long time. Could it be the beautiful views? The first class villas in Spain or the homey villas in Portugal? The pristine white sand beaches? The hospitable people? Or the food? I really can’t tell it would be wise to say all of it! 🙂 🙂 🙂
But being a foodie, it’s definitely the food I’m going to sample first. The whole family loves to eat and we all are adventurous eaters. Not the exotic kinds though but we love to discover what each country has to offer. Yeah, we have had Spanish cuisine and most of our dishes were greatly influenced by Spain. We have had a taste of Portugal in some restaurants here and I have also tried cooking some of the recipes from a blogger friend’s blog who happens to be a Portuguese but I’m sure it’s not like when you’re dining there and having a sample of authentic Portugal cooking. Did you know the emapanadas originated in Portugal? I didn’t. I thought it was from Spain. 😉
Well, I wish it was that easy to getaway. With “two peas in a pod” baking in the oven, it would be hard for us to leave this summer. I want to be here when the twins come. How about you guys? Have you already made plans this summer? If you haven’t then why not spend those hot summer days in Spain or Portugal? I’ll be dreaming about it for the moment.
