Five Years Ago Today

I was leaving here:

And heading here:

From two nights in Nazare (and one big Portugal win over England, watched on a big screen in the town square), to one night in a beautiful pousada in Sintra.

In Nazare, we ate tons and tons of seafood, including an amazing seafood stew in a creamy, spicy tomato broth. In Sintra, before heading to a saint's festival that showcased the cheesiest rapper and outfits and carnival prizes (giant gold pirate ship? Yes, please!) available in Portugal, we found a quiet restaurant just outside the village where I had lamb in a ridiculously rich sauce. One of my favorite things about Portugal was the mix of cuisine. While it's not exactly heaven for vegetarians, the Portuguese are experts with both the seafood and all different types of meat (especially pig).

Makes me wish it was standard procedure to take a honeymoon every year.
