RICHARD’S TRAVEL TIPS

South African Garden and Home - - Destinations -

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).
