Portugal was my first press trip and a major milestone in my blogging/journalism career. People I spoke to said that press trips weren’t holidays and that they were hard work which I couldn’t believe to be true… until I went on one. It was go-go-go from the moment we arrived in Sintra and didn’t stop until we left for Lisbon 3 days later. I was completely exhausted but really did enjoy the trip and got a glimpse into the life of a travel writer which, career wise, is part of what I want to do. We visited loads of historic sites and drank the finest of wines surrounded by beautiful views but in the meantime before I get all the content written, here’s my press trip to through the eyes of Instagram.
