Music festival-Marés vivas

Hello folks,
Today I decided to write my second experience in a music festival. (The first is here)

It all started when i was looking for some festivals to go on the summer. Marés was the one this year, because I never went and because It is in Porto, one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal.

I invited my friend Cristiana, and in 15th of july we traveled to Porto.
At the beginning I was feeling a little “insecure” because I did not know a lot about this festival… for example if the transports to get there would be good…

We  got there by bus. I must confess, to catch the bus was like running if the world was ending😀 We did not know where the bus station was. We had to ask people😀

Me and Cris arrived and we took a lot of photos. The vibe was really nice.
Then, we went to the main stage to see the one and only, James Bay and the marvelous kodaline.
They were amazing. I can not describe by words how talented they are.
The crowed was magnificent which helped to become this festival so special.
If someone asks me what song was my favourite, I could not answer. The shows left me speechless.
I love them.

I hope I could see them live again, soon.

I really enjoyed Mares. Hope to be back.

With love,
Rita.

Porto serie: Lello bookshop

Hello people,
Yes, I am back. After college season, the mode: elf free is on🙂

To celebrate, me and my friend Cristiana (site) went to a music festival in Porto and the day after we decided to visit the city around.
This will be a serie🙂

The first stop is one of the most magnificent bookshops in the world: Lello Bookshop.
You can find it at Rua das Carmelitas 144, 4050-161 Porto.
To enter we paid 3€ which works as a discount if you buy a book. For example if a book there costs 12€ we only pay 9€. lello 7.jpg

As we gave the first steps there, we felt all the magic and harry potter vibes. I am a huge fan of HP and being there, got me closer to my childhood.
The architecture left me speechless, it is so beautiful… all the books in shelves, the stairs…
The stairs are known as the inspiration of the stairs of Hogwarts in the books of HP.
The bookshop has 2 stages. The first we can find books of different writers, different languages… and in the second stage we find more specific books about economy, medicine… dictionaries.
We could take a lot of photos and spend an amazing time there.
