Portugal has asked for a bail-out and my heart shrinks a little for it. It is my country and I love it. I love its people, its gentle paced life, its sunshine, its immense coastline and delicious food. I love the feeling of belonging and feeling at home. Portugal is a great country with a rich and diverse history and people reading the news today may not think so. That saddens me for if only they discovered Portugal they would love it almost as much as I do. A bit about what I mean here and here. And if you haven't yet decided on your holiday destination, why not visit Portugal?
