Hello Sweets,

Epica is currently touring through Europe and today we are in beautiful Porto, in Portugal.

Isaac and me went in to town to buy some postcards and enjoy the scenery. We had a drink at one of the little restaurants along the Douro and met Marcela who was also exploring the city.

Our dinner happened to be at the same restaurant later today. How I enjoy being in this beautiful city.

It is definitely one of the perks of being in a touring band. I love to travel and see the world through my own (and Ray Ban) eyes. Now it is time for me to get ready for the show. See you onstage!

Enjoy the pictures.
You can see the Hard Club in the background.
Marcela is tiny and very sweet.
