Do you know what they say about people who love the colour red? They’re impulsive, outgoing, aggressive at times. They have a strong zest for life. They tend to be extremely optimistic, but hate monotony and crave change. They are passionate and strong, full of vigour. They are restless. They can be too quick in their decision-making; one might call them rash, hasty. They are determined to get all they can out of life.
Is it any wonder I meet so many travellers who love the colour red, or, that when I travel, I see it everywhere?

Red is totally my colour and, having read this, now I can totally see why! My purse is red, my travel doc holder is red, my bedroom at my parent’s house is red, my headphones are red, most of my running gear is red, my phone cover was red until I broke it!
These photos are gorgeous Brenna, I especially love the that bookshop – what a beautiful room.
The bookshop was incredible – they say it inspired J.K. Rowling! And yes, red is my favourite colour, too, and once I found that description it all made perfect sense…
I’m totally a red too! I love the door photos – I’m often drawn to doors when travelling too 🙂
I wonder what it is about doors… I always have so many photos of them!
Red is definitely becoming one of my favourite colours! Beautiful pictures sister xo
Thank you, Zalie xo
These photos are wonderful! You have such an eye, Brenna. I stand in awe.
Aw, thank you! You know how much I love taking photos…
I love the color theme idea. Red is really a beautiful color, great pictures.
Thank you! I love doing the colour-themed posts, but they take so much time (unless I have enough from one city, of course)…
It’s also said that red is the color the eye is drawn to first, before any other color! Love all these, especially the doors.
Thanks, Jackie! Miss you x
pictures = love.
Love red! Love these posts. x
This post was inspired from our lunch on Thursday! Glad you liked it 🙂
Nice photos! I fell in love with Porto while I was there. Portugal generally is a very colourful country with all the street art and patterned tiled outside walls.
Yes – I loved taking photos in Portugal! I still go back and look at the ones I took in Lisbon often, too.
I love red…
You must be a traveller!
The one thing that always stands out to me when I search anything about Portugal online is the vivid colors. I am glad you encapsulated that sense in this post! 🙂
Yes – Portugal is so photogenic! I’m sure there will be many more of these posts to come.
Love this post and love this idea for a post! So cute. 🙂
Thank you so much!

Lovely pics, as per usual 🙂
