Last Tuesday was mine and my boyfriend’s second year of dating! So we decided to go to Sintra, Portugal, and spend the day in a Palace! We went to Palácio da Pena (Pena Palace) for the day and we loved it! Granted, I had to walk way more than I would ever like to but there were beautiful views everywhere you looked so it was totally worth the muscle aches the next day (and the next, and the next…). So I decided to make this post to share all that beauty with you!
I always feel like we don’t take enough advantage of our own country. In my case, for example, Sintra is super close to where I live (near Lisbon) but, even though I’ve been living here 22 years this was only the first time I went there! We never appreciate what we’ve got and it was finally time for me to go visit Sintra. Let’s also keep in mind that last time Beyoncé was in Portugal she did visit Sintra end loved it. I mean, if it’s good enough for Beyoncé it’s surely good enough for me!

We both had a really good time celebrating our 2 years together and it was just the perfect day out! I´m really happy with the pictures I took so you can expect to see them on my Instagram from now on!! If you’re ever in Portugal I really recommend you visit Sintra and especially Pena Palace!
Let me know what you thought of this ‘a day in a palace’ post! I love photography and it’s something I really want to start sharing more on my blog. Also, let me know if you like these more personal posts so I can keep them coming! Lastly, let me know if you want a ‘guide to visiting Portugal’ type of post because I’d love making something like that. I hope you had a lovely week and that this next one is even better. Can you believe it’s already July!!?
