10+ Photographic reasons to road trip through Portugal


10+ Photographic reasons to road trip through Portugal

We have spent the last two weeks road tripping the back roads of Portugal with Goldcar. With so many hidden gems off the tourist trail, the best way to discover Portugal's natural beauty is by following the coastal roads and discovering all that Portugal has to offer. They say a photo says 1000 words, so we figured we would let them do the talking for this blog.
