Porto is colourful…

…even in the rain.fullsizeoutput_1f50

Don’t forget to bring your colourful umbrella when you come to Porto. The rain won’t be stopping you from getting around this city. You’ll just fit in!

What to do on a rainy day in Porto? You can always visit art galleries. (REMEMBER, on Mondays most things are closed).

We were told about rua Miguel Bombarda so we decided to go search it out.

The first place you need to go to on this street is Centro Comercial Bombarda. It’s not a regular ” mall”. This small ” shopping mall” will surprise you with it’s originality.  Click on the link to learn more.IMG_2499.JPG While on rua Miguel Bombarda you don’t only get to view the art work from inside the studios but you also get to see the interesting art work on the streets.IMG_2508.JPG

Our little Oasis-

So this is our little secret. Okay so we’ll share.😊 This place (see photos below) is called Rota Do Chá. It’s also located on this same street, rua Miguel Bombarda. This is definitely the spot for all our tea lover friends back home .(And everything else you might like to drink). Once you go through those doors, it’s like you’ve entered another world. You immediately feel completely relax and tap into your inner “zen feeling”. As you walk inside there’s a tea store with a huge collection of teas. Then you can either go to the beautiful garden patio in the back, which on a warm day it’s just so calm back there. Or else you have rooms inside on the second floor. We’ve been there twice now both in the garden and upstairs. Both spaces are perfect for you to just zone out. They have nice lunch specials which always include a soup and a healthy main dish. You won’t want to leave this place!
