The São Bento station’s delicately painted blue tiles depicted scenes from Portugal’s history. As we walked ahead, sombre stone buildings glistened in the light of dusk like grumpy old men judging my actions. And I felt guilty. Guilty of not expecting more, guilty of not doing my homework before the trip. I avoided their gaze as we walked from the station to our hotel through the historic centre of the city of Porto that has been around since the fourth century. I knew then that this visit was going to be about more than just port wine.
30th March 2016 was the last day of our first Whole 30 diet challenge. Here’s what Rosa posted on Facebook (before we had this blog).
We made it to day 30 without any slipups and to celebrate we had omelette (my lunch), crispy chicken livers, golden cauliflower soup and zoodles with chili.
