So, as many of you know, I spent the last week slowing down and enjoying the beauty of Porto, Portugal. I had decided it was time for a trip all on my own and I couldn't have been happier. The past week was an opportunity for me to really step back and appreciate all that we have in this beautiful life. It held moments honing in on the little things and practicing radical self-love. With the end of summer, we normally envision the idea of 'starting over' in the fall and beginning with a blank slate. For me, this trip was a realization that life is really beautiful at the moment and with that beauty, comes peace.
I'll be writing a few articles over the next few weeks with tips from the trip, some of the best places I explored and the importance of slow + solo travel but for now, I'll share in the way I know best, through photography. Special thanks to the lovely people at Casa do Conto, Rosa Et Al, Pensão Favorita, Spazo Zen, Wine Quay Bar and Taste Porto Food Tours for helping make the trip that more special.
