We usually choose our Destination of the Month based on a combination of factors--geographical balance, time of year for travel, availability of new books on the location, and so on--but this month it seemed to choose itself for us. We've recently had an unexpected spate of requests for travel guides to Portugal. Apparently that's where all of you are clamoring to go right now! And why not, we say? The food, the climate, the history, the music, the port wine ... and don't forget the affordability. Despite its increasing popularity, Portugal remains one of Europe's best bargains. So read up, travelers!
