It’s that time of the year again, the time when the year just plain ends. Alas, we can’t just let 2013 go that easily, especially since travelers spent it both up in the air and up in arms over a crazy range of topics. Needless to say, we’re ready to get going into 2014, but first we’re taking a brief look back at the best of 2013 with the Jaunted Travel Awards,—or as we fondly refer to them—The Jauntys.
Jaunted, “The Pop Culture Travel Guide”, part of Condé Nast Traveler Network, has given a Jaunty to Lisbon for Destination of the Year 2013, following Santiago, Chile as 2012’s Destination of the Year.
The writer states that, for some reason, Americans have been ignoring Portugal and that reflects on the reactions colleagues have had over some comments – a good example being that Lisbon looks just like San Francisco. As a result, they’ve put together some basic travel packages to help you get to know the city.
Apart from Lisbon, Jaunted has also visited the South of Portugal in 2013 and has already plans to come back in the Spring.
