RICHARD’S TRAVEL TIPS
GOOD TO KNOW If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series, seek out the Lello Bookstore in Porto. JK Rowling lived in the city in the early ’90s, and it’s believed that the century-old bookstore was the inspiration for ‘Flourish and Blotts’ in Diagon Alley, as well as the moving staircase at Hogwarts.
SHOP UP A STORM In Lisbon’s Chiado district, which has both chic boutiques and international brands.
ITEMS TO PACK The cobbled streets of Lisbon and Porto demand decent footwear. Leave the heels at home if you’re planning on exploring on foot.
FAVOURITE BITE Make like a local and find a café for mid-morning espresso and
pasteis de nata (custard tart).
