First trip abroad since Nov 2012

I am both extremely nervous and extremely excited.
This is my first trip since coming home. I mean, I went to Nola and Boston and PA but Boston and PA are home and Nola was with Doug, who was a comfort zone at the time.
I am nervous because I haven't traveled. I haven't avoided it, I just haven't done it. It was too anxiety-inducing at first and now I am more ready. But still a little anxious.
I read guidebooks (which I have never done before) because I felt like getting the lay of the land would be good for me. It has been so far!

Portugal and Paris

My best friend and I are taking a bestie-trip NEXT MONTH (HWHAT?) to Portugal! I will take a little solo jaunt to Paris while she is presenting at an academic conference.
I can't believe it is so soon! I can't believe it is so long from now!
I am super stoked.
Any recommendations on food/places/things to eat/see/do?
We are definitely going to Livraria Lello in Porto, Portugal. Not sure where else.
