A California native who never turns down a glass of wine or the opportunity to visit a new destination. I believe whole-heartedly in learning about culture through food & drink.
I like to plan a mix of must-see "check the box" sights and off-the-beaten-path treasures usually only experienced by the locals. Add in a great bar or two for after-dinner drinks and a cooking class to get your hands just a little dirty, and you've got the perfect trip! My budget philosophy is to save where you can, but don't be afraid to splurge on just the right experience to make your trip truly magical.
Praia D'El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort
During the warmer months go for a golfer's heaven on the rugged Atlantic Coast. Stop during off/shoulder season for a quiet getaway out of the city and a quick drive to the Mediaeval walled town of Óbidos or the giant waves in Nazaré.
