The Quaint Town of Obidos, Portugal

A little town I fell in love with in Portugal.

There’s only about 3,000 habitants in the town so you can imagine how small it is. It’s got the historic vibe: still surrounded by castle walls, lined with cobble stones and nothing but souvenirs and friendly locals in each store.

A must try local treat is the Ginjinha – a raspberry flavoured alcoholic drink poured into a cup made of chocolate that you eat right after drinking (!!!).

You only need an afternoon to go around the town. We just went window shopping, checking out all the handmade crafts in the stores. Oh, we walked along the castle walls too.
