“Sea, half of my soul is made from sea breeze,” says Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen in her poem Atlantic. In The Beginning of a Prayer, Filipa Leal writes, “Lord, fill my room with the high seas.” These poets express with eloquence what all Portuguese feel–that the sea is vital to our life.
We hope that the New Year is healthy and bright and that you can travel with ease to come experience the poetic radiance of the Portuguese sea.

Happy New Year to you! I’m one of the lucky ones. I experience it almost every day.
Yes, it is so great to be in Portugal! Happy New Year!
A beautiful post. Wishing you all the best for the year ahead.
PS we made it back to Portugal yesterday, but travelling certainly complicated these days. A few people didn’t even make it on flight because their Covid19 documentation was invalid!
Yes, it is hard do travel it is great that you made it back!
