Hello friends! I hope you’re doing well!
I’ve been sharing photos on Instagram again recently. I’ve been thinking again that, especially since my “day job” includes being a web developer, I should be sharing these photos and maybe even the occasional longer-form blog post on my own website.
I wouldn’t hold your breath for new posts showing up here, but for now, I will attempt to post here whenever I post to Instagram.
This photo is of an old monastery in Gaia, Portugal. I didn’t realize till recently that it, along with a bridge nearby has been designated as a UNESCO world heritage site. You can read more about the monastery here. I only know that its surrounding “courtyard” area provides a great vantage point to look across the Douro river to the city of Porto. It gets quite busy around sunset…
If you’re ever in Porto or Gaia Portugal I definitely would recommend spending at least one sunset here.
Here is a link to it on Google Maps
