We were meant to go to Portugal three years back. But fate had other plans. So when Bharat suggested we squeeze in a trip to Europe’s westernmost country during a break between my college program, I didn’t let it sink in till the time we actually boarded the flight.
A day before our departure for Portugal, my sister and brother in law, who were joining us on the trip, sent us a link for a dine and cook session in Porto, our common place of landing. We could learn how to make pasteis de nata (Portugal’s famous egg tarts) with a Portuguese lady.
My first reaction was that of excitement. The second one was that of concern regarding reviews. On the sibling’s reassurance, we blindly signed up and we’re so glad that they found WithLocals, a service that connects travelers with locals, offering personalized experiences. Kind of like an Airbnb or Uber for home dining experiences.
