Today I was in tourist mode and it was so nice. I walked all day, but the pace was different. While the pilgrimage wasn’t so much about the destination, the mindset was different. As a pilgrim, it was about experiencing the walk. But, as a tourist, the walk is secondary; it’s much more about the sights.

  
Porto is a beautiful city! 

There are so many sights to behold. We started our day by visiting, the Palacio de Cristal. It host music and sports events , but it’s the grounds that truly inspire.

   

    
 
But my favorite, thing about the crystal palace was the Merry-Go-Round.

   
 
Of course a visit to the port was a must! However, Porto is much more then just the Port. In addition to visiting the port, we toured an old monastery and took a harbor sight-seeing cruise.

   
    
 
After viewing the many sights Porto has to offer, we headed back to the apartment to relax.

It was a very good day!
