We knew we wanted to spend a full day out at sea. There were quite a few spots in the south of the island that we wanted to see and sailing around in a catamaran sounded like an awesome adventure. Some of the beaches weren’t accessible any other way than by boat, so we ended up booking with Milos Adventures. It was one of the most incredible experiences and definitely the highlight of Milos for me and Marco.

People are always asking me what they need to see in Portugal when they visit for a couple of days. There is way too much to see in a short amount of time, so I always find it hard to answer that question. But if you’re staying in Lisbon for 4 or 5 days, there are some day trips you can take that are worth the visit. Sintra is one of them!
Since I was pressed for time, I could only stop by one of the many beautiful spots in Sintra. Because of how magical the palace looked, I decided to see Pena Palace and I’m so glad I did!
