Can you see yourself here? Can you taste the wine as you sit on your private balcony and bask in the beauty of Lisbon? Portugal is an amazing country to visit. It's rich in history and culture. But, it's food and wine are to die for! "Food and wine are fundamental. The occasional modern restaurant apart, tradition rules: hearty portions of local dishes, meat, hams and sausages, game in season, magnificent fish and seafood, the beloved salt cod (bacalhau), copious bread, rice and potatoes, and a bottle of olive oil always at the ready. Dessert is obligatory –1001 delightful combinations of egg yolks with sugar: lots of sugar.
Portugal’s winemakers have been equally conservative in one respect – keeping faith with their grapes. And no wonder! Portugal’s varieties are unique, with thrillingly different flavours. Yet quality-wise there has been no resting on traditional laurels. A quarter-century of investment, education, open-mindedness and flair has meant explosive change. Choice has multiplied too. Alongside co-ops and large companies, myriad estates now make their own distinctive wines." - www.winesofportugal.info
So, what are you waiting for? Let's get you on your balcony in Portugal sipping it's award winning wines!

Have you ever seen Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, Alberta? It's most well known for it's glorious turquoise water! Just look at it 😍
But, why does it have such a rich hue of blue? Banffandbeyond.com says, "As much as a local might try to convince you that each year the lakes are drained and the bottoms are painted or that dye is added to the water, neither is the case. As the melt water from a glacier that feeds a lake starts to flow in the spring time it carries with it glacier silt or rock flour. The silt is created when rocks underneath the surface of the ice are grinding from the movement of the glacier. The rock flour is very light and stays suspended in the lake water for a long time. The sunlight that reflects off this rock flour is what gives the lakes their spectacular turquoise blue or green colour." What an amazing sight to see! When will you go?
