At the ocean

Blog Andra Dorolti

This is the last review of Porto: the ocean. The last (but not least) thing I recommend you is to visit the ocean. It’s quite far from the city, but you can take the underground and it’ll take 20 mins. There’s some nice views, not very crowded, not a lot of shops or restaurants. It’s more quiet, which I like. There are many hotels along the shore, with beautiful views. It would be a nice accommodation place.Overall, I really enjoyed this city and I hope to go back one day!

Ultima postare despre Porto: oceanul. Va recomand sa-l vizitati, merita. Aveti putin de mers cu metroul, dar in cam 20 minute ati ajuns. Peisajul e frumos, zona nu prea aglomerata, cateva magazine si restaurante. E mai linistita zona, dar mie-mi place asa.  Aproape de mal sunt multe hoteluri – un loc perfect unde ati putea sta, ca sa va bucurati de peisaj. Per total, mi-a placut mult vizita si sper sa ma reintorc intr-o zi (cu soare)!

Porto – part 2

MagnoliaPorto is a very colourful city. It wasn’t very crowded when we went, but I believe people prefer to go there in the summer. You can enjoy a lot of things this city offers, as prices are not high at all. So you’ll be able to visit places, eat out and shop with a reasonable budget.

Porto e-un oras foarte colorat. Nu prea aglomerat cand am fost noi, dar cred ca lumea prefera sa-l viziteze vara. Puteti sa va rasfatati cu tot ce va ofera orasul, preturile sunt accesibile. Cu un buget rezonabil puteti sa vizitati diverse lucruri, sa luati masa in oras, sa faceti umpic de shopping.

Yes, there’s a lot of seagulls, too many I think! They didn’t bother me, but on a long term basis.. uff, that’s a lot to handle! On the bright sight, they enrich the beauty of the landscape.

Multi multi pescarusi! Se-mbina frumos cu peisajul..dar pe termen lung… brr, prea multi!

Because of the nice weather, you can already have dinner outside, along the water.

E-o vreme asa placuta pentru cina si plimbari afara, langa apa…

The traditional Porto wine is very sweet, aromatic, with a soft taste. I recommend it!

Vinul de Porto e dulce, foarte aromat, cu un gust fin. Il recomand cu drag!

Francesinha is something you’ll find in Porto only. It’s like a sandwich (with different types of meat, sausages and salami in it), surrounded by fries. They say the secret of the delicious taste stays in the sauce. I really enjoyed this food, but I would have preferred less sauce!

Francesinha e o mancare specifica orasului Porto. E un fel de sandwich (cu o gramada de carne, salam, carnat in el), inconjurat de cartofi prajiti. Localnicii spun ca secretul e sosul. Mi-a placut mancarea, insa as fi preferat mai putin sos, ca sa vezi!

The shopping is not that interesting, I may say. They have small boutiques and a big shop, like Selfridges or Harvey Nichols. I see Porto as a place to relax, to walk, enjoy the beauty of the nature, but not to shop. Which is good, more budget for that wine and francesinha, yum!

Partea de shopping nu e asa interesanta. Sunt multe magazine mici, si-un centru cu marci mai scumpe (Hugo Boss, CK, DKNY etc). Dar orasul mi se pare perfect pentru plimbari, relaxare, nu pentru shoping. Ceea ce-i perfect, mai mult buget pentru vin si  francesinha, yum!

Porto – part 1

For those who don’t know from my Facebook Page, I spent the last days in the beautiful Porto. Although it was a short visit, I really enjoyed the city… it’s so so beautiful, original, romantic, people are friendly and the food is great. Usually, the weather is great as well, but no, of course I didn’t have this luck! So yes, we experienced some rain, and yes, you’ll see some pictures with some round shapes on them – that’s rain drops… but it was a lovely trip and I would like to go back one day, to visit more – not only Porto, but also other places in Portugal.

Pentru cei care nu au aflat inca (de pe Pagina mea de Facebook), am petrecut ultimele zle in frumosul oras Porto. Desi a fost o vizita scurta, am apucat sa vizitez una alta, sa imi fac o idee si sa raman cu o impresie extrem de placuta.. e un oras frumos, original, romantic, oameni prietenosi si mancare delicioasa. De obicei, vremea e minunata, numai ca, normal ca n-am avut norocul asta! Asa ca, da, a plouat putintel, ne-am cam udat..si da, veti vedea cateva poze cu mici pete rotunde pe ele – picaturi de ploaie… dar per total a fost o excursie reusita si mi-ar placea sa ma intorc intr-o zi (cu soare) ..nu doar in Porto, ci si in alte locuri din Portugalia.

I really liked that buildings are so colourfull. An interesting and surprising fact was to notice all those buildings in a very poor condition, next to the restructured ones.

Mi-a placut multitudinea de culori. Dar foarte interesant si surprinzator a fost sa vad numeroase cladiri intr-o stare foarte nasoala, langa cladiri frumoase, restaurate.
