If you’ve never been to Portugal, you should go.
If you’re needing character, warmth, good food, an inexpensive cost of living and cheap flights via Ryanair; visit Porto. You’ll not regret it.

When we missed our flight back to Germany due to weather, we didn’t mind staying another half-week of sun, shopping and strolling along.
