Hello! Who’s got two thumbs and just booked the rest of her travel for 2017? THIS GAL. Very excited to report I’m going back to the Iberian Peninsula and exploring Portugal for the first time while walking the Camino de Santiago for the second time on the Portuguese route. What should I be eating and drinking while I’m there? Thanks for reading The Packing List, have a great week!
