5 Things You Will Love & Hate About Portugal

With the summer holiday season just a couple of months away, here is a great video from Wolter's World suggesting both 5 things you will love about Portugal and 5 things you will hate.

Arriving in Oporto to select a port wine for his college, Englishman Horace Grimpil soon finds himself embroiled in the conflicting interests of the British and Portuguese communities, where he is an ignorant outsider.
