Literary Traveler: Portugal

Lately I've been doing a lot of armchair travelling, which is when you buy guidebooks for places, and think about going there, and then look at pictures of said places on random blogs and pretty much just delight in the possibilities. Portugal is one of the places I'd like to go, so I thought it would be fun to make a little reading list featuring some essential Portuguese writers…

Fernando Pessoa's The Book of Disquiet

Jose Saramago's Baltasar and Blimunda or The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis (Actually set in 20th century Lisbon.)

José Maria de Eça de Queirós's The Maias

Antonio Lobo Antunes's Fado Alexandrino (Amazon tells me that people who bought it also bought Satantango, so… I mean, just consider yourself warned or something.)


Bootcamp is killing me, guys. I did 60 push-ups today.


Yes, I made that in paint. I know I'm a genius; stop mentioning it. Honestly, you're embarrassing me.
