A Porto River Cruise at Sunset

On the first leg of my trip to Portugal, I stood atop Lisbon’s ancient castle overlooking the city to watch a stunning sunset. It seemed fitting that I should say goodbye to Portugal by taking in another sunset, this time while cruising the Douro River. Hopping onto one of the many boats from the riverfront Ribeira neighborhood is a great way to see the city from a different angle. These cruises generally last about an hour, an hour in which there’s nothing to do but relax and snap a few photos. Below are some of mine:

I also took some video footage. Here’s a glimpse of Porto showing off its golden hues:

  1. Nice photos of the sunsets. They are very beautiful.

  2. Thank you, Shalu. I'm now following your blog, as I'd love to learn more about India from a local and to visit the country some day.
