For my birthday, I’m headed to Portugal! A perfect storm of factors led me to pick Portugal as the next country to visit:
- My coworker is from Portugal and always talks about how amazing it is
- Conde Nast Traveler’s podcast recently covered Portugal as an excellent European destination
- One Mile at a Time recently blogged about Azores Airlines
I’m a bit short on miles right now, so I decided to book economy tickets on TAP Portugal, Ryanair, and Azores Airlines.
First, we’re flying from San Francisco to Lisbon, with a three-hour layover in JFK. For our six-night stay in Lisbon, we booked a beautiful 1-bedroom Airbnb for only $113/night. The host promptly messaged us with a guide to Lisbon and an offer to arrange airport transportation. ❤
