Impressions of Portugal #VikingSocial

Prior to receiving an invitation from Viking River Cruises to participate in the #VikingSocial cruise on the Douro River, I knew very little about Portugal. I was aware that Port wine was made in Portugal, and that cork trees grew there.

Of the 1,121 photographs I snapped along the journey, here are a few that summarize my first impressions of Portugal.
