like a tourist

I found these old portuguese tourism brochures. When I first moved to Portugal my mindset was that of the days in which I came as a visitor on summer vacation almost every summer as a child and teenager. I did experience that phenomenon called culture shock when I first moved here and it took me quite some time to go into real life mode.

Now I really can´t see myself living anywhere else.

More tourism graphics: Oregon and Scandanavia and Holland.

PS. There are some wonderful travel posters and others HERE(once you click on the thumbnails use the next and previous button on the left hand side to view much more!

These are great, Mary! I have a bunch of them from my parents from the sixties as well. And some wonderful ones from Spain, when my dad lived there. I'll send you some photos!
