My Personal A to Z of Portugal

What My Personal A to Z of Portugal is all about

I recently began working on a series of blog posts, each based on a letter of the alphabet, to create a personal A to Z of Portugal. The posts are about aspects of living and travelling in Portugal that I feel strongly about, one way or another, each based on a letter of the alphabet, for example, ‘A is for Alva, the river Alva‘.

You can read more about the thinking behind the series in my original post, A Personal A to Z of Portugal.

I’m not the only one taking on the challenge

As soon as I published my introduction to my personal A to Z challenge, other bloggers liked the idea and thought of ways they could do one of their own, about Portugal and other countries.

Soon there were so many bloggers and posts involved, it was hard to keep track of all the links so with the help of Alyson Sheldrake from Algarve Blog I set up a hub site, www.myatozchallenge.com, where bloggers could publish excerpts of their A to Z posts and share links.

However, since my blog is primarily about Portugal, I’ve included links to other Personal A to Zs of Portugal for you here:

    Thank you for spreading the message. We should be so proud of our country’s legacy, and yet we tend to overlook it and blame anything else but OURSELVES. Your blog is, in a kind of way, the portuguese version of Bill Bryson’s ‘Mother Tongue’. Well done!
