Signing off! Whit and Jess in Lisbon

Signing off!

Happy Monday!

This is our first official day kicking off our group trip! We’re all going on a walking tour of Alfama today (my favorite area of the city)! Just wanted to say hi, hope your week is off to a great start, and that I’ll be signing off from the blog for the rest of the week, but I’ll definitely be posting as much from our trip as possible over on Instagram, so follow along over here! (Here’s a snap of Whit and I enjoying some Vinho Verde with the beautiful Lisbon rooftops behind us!)

Also, if you don’t want to wait for my blog post recap–I’ll be adding my updates this week to the Out of Office app, which you can download right here! It’s an awesome trip planning app that is basically like a Trip Advisor but for…millennials, for lack of a better term? 😂 So you can follow your friends and friends of friends recommendations–not getting travel advice from a bunch of strangers who you may have nothing in common with! I have a list of Lisbon reccos already going in the app (along with my reccos from Italy, Spain, Napa, and Cabo) but will be adding more throughout our trip!

I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week, and see you back here once I’m back in Chicago! ♥️

xoxo

Jess
