˝My experience is so special and unique˝ – every exchange student (except those late bloomers who missed home breastfeeding too much to enjoy) It’s simple, I went studying to Portugal (Lisbon) for a year, had an amazing time and in some cases, I documented my life with camera.

I want to share those moments here, also because someone might be having second thoughts about moving away from home for a certain period of time. It’s quadruple worth it. No matter where you go.

Ribeira d’Ilhas, quite famous surfing spot

Ribeira d’Ilhas #2, this time with fog which makes the pic up to 5 times more inspirational

Abandones restaurant over Lisbon. Be careful for the cops here, gotta sneak in and out. Surprisingly enough, no ghost stories so far.

My friend, my weird foot and I went to Peniche for a 3-day surfing trip. Eat, surf, eat tuna, surf, sleep, repeat.

The only routine I like. Sunset sessions.

View from the abandoned restaurant as listed before.

Awesome town I don’t remember the name.

Watching Game ofThrones S6 E4 with view. And somersbies (did I get the plural right?)

The swell. If you look closely, you can see the line up.

Lagoa do Fogo, Azores islands. A lake in an volcano on the island in the middle of the ocean.

Praia Ribeira do Cavalho – few years ago a hidden paradise only locals knew, now a touristic destination. Don’t tell anyone, it’s already too crowded.

Nazaré, where arguably the biggest wave in history was surfed in 2012. Google it.

During the morning class. I think this was during the ‘International business’, but I’m not really sure.

I’m lacking inspirational quotes now, so I will leave this title out.
