This house was beyond gorgeous! Oh and we also heard some juicy gossip on a certain member of a certain royal family of a certain neighboring country... 🤐🇪🇸🤴🏻 Link to the new post is in the bio! Read to find out why I’m saying Maia is one of the best cities in Portugal for sustainable cultural tourism.

I couldn’t make up my mind about what burger to order at @hamburgueriadavoana but kept hearing the recommendation for “Rústico” at the table. I read the description twice (it includes blood sausage, apple) and thought “really? This is good?” Always trust the locals, I say, and “Rústico” it was. It was so good! I only remembered about the blood sausage half-way through eating the burger! And the apple! Major bonus points for the bread! 🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔
Fluidity. This is the word that easily sums up Maia’s commitment to sustainability. Everything is carefully planned and designed with people, quality of life, mobility, and the environment in mind. Which then reflects on local culture and tourism.
Apesar de não terem escapado, por um triz, aos nossos zombies esta equipa mista de estreantes e conhecedores de escape rooms, fizeram um óptimo jogo e demonstraram grande perspicácia e espírito de equipa!
Yesterday, I shared this photo on IG stories and did a poll asking you if I had jumped off a plane with @skydivemaiaparaquedismo or not and 67% of you said yes 😂😂😂😂 I hate to disappoint you but I did not. My fellow bloggers @demochilaascostas did, though, and they were thrilled! Awesome experience if you’re in Maia but it’s not for the faint of heart like me.
Never, ever underestimate the touristic potential of a place you’ve never heard about (or have heard about but didn’t consider visiting before). With the rise of over tourism and people flocking to the same places, you need to find balance. There is so much more to explore. In Portugal, there’s so much more to see than Lisbon and Porto. Maia was surprising, to say the least. At the core of every successful project are passionate people. There’s no other way to make it work. And Sandra and Mário from @visitemaia were the best hosts to introduce Maia to us, from so many different angles. There’s nothing dull about this city, I’ll tell you that.
