Porto, Portugal

Porto was wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised by the small number of tourists, the kind and helpful locals, the stunning architecture, the great food, the very reasonable prices, and the sun—which is entirely absent the German sky this time of year
There were markets on, what seemed like, every street corner and fresh bakeries full of delicious cheap pastries every ten feet or so (literally). Don't worry, we tried to limited ourselvesespecially since the only one who could use a bunch of extra pastries is gluten intolerant. 
Then we walked to the “Harry Potter” library, which is one of the most beautiful bookstores you will ever see. 
This beauty is the Eiffel bridge, designed by the talented Gustave Eiffel (also famous for his Parisian tower—you might know the one).
My sis and her husband are great travel buddies. We will miss them when we leave! 
Picasso knows what he is talking about.
