can you see why i have a major crush on it now?
the são bento train station is so beyond
gorgeous, with blue tiles everywhere. swoon.
^^ this blue tile church! i stood in front of it
for 20 minutes and took way too many pictures
because i loved it that much. gorgeous!
scootin’ around town thanks to
^^ see what i’m doing here?
sneaking more pictures of this church in
throughout the post because i can’t choose just
one picture! especially against the blue sky — ahh!
in the afternoon the clouds rolled in,
just how i like it :) the colorful
buildings still looked so pretty
against the dark grey sky!
^^ we cruised down the beach on the scooter…
look at that wave on the left. this area
is surfer’s heaven, major waves.
time for dinner! the name of this restaurant
literally translates to: “the best chocolate cake
in the world.” that is the name of the actual
restaurant! obviously i had to eat here :)
^^ pulling up to dinner right at the door!
^^ here’s the famous chocolate cake! the founder
carlos brás lopez created this recipe on accident
but it became so popular that customers began
to request “the best chocolate cake in the world.”
after a while, he renamed his entire restaurant
after it! it is soooo delicious and unlike any chocolate
cake i have ever tasted. it has layers of meringue
and ganache in between. it is like a big chocolate
macaron in cake form..what could be better?
^^ chase got milk chocolate,
i got dark chocolate of course.
^^ can you tell we liked it?
^^ we ended the greatest night
back in our cozy room at guest house duoro,
looking out over the pretty river.
take me back!!!
