We left the city and came to this special place by narrow and curvy roads, it reminds of my childhood, towards Tras-os-Montes. The gate opens and the Farm welcomes us, huge. Paula showed us some of the guest houses and they’re all […]

Making memories <3

mae-filha-holanda

We were gifted with these siroopwafels, a typical Dutch wafer, from a team of Mother & Daughter travelers. They were two friendly women from The Netherlands and their stay, in September 2014, became memorable.
