About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

PORTUGAL, Douro Valley, Wine

Went on Tour of Douro Valley today which including visiting 2 wineries and river cruise through the valley. Was very beautiful but 1.5 hours driving each way from Porto. Unfortunately I was not a big fan of Port Wine which is their specialty.
