Solo travel experience

I felt very safe in Porto and walked around at night without any issues. Public transportation was always available and uber/taxis were not so expensive.

Solo travel experience

I stayed at House of Sandeman Hostel in Gaia. It was stunning. I stayed a week and had an absolute ball. Beautiful city to explore. There was a 24 port festival whilst I was there. The whole town was out with live entertainment, food and wine. I also hired a bicycle and road south to the beaches, lots of fun exploring and very picturesque.
