Best Day Ever

Navigating the Cliffs of Sagres, Portugal

by January Vernon and Brad Stell

The view from Fortaleza de Sagres.

We left the port travelling west with no destination in mind. We found ourselves veering off the road onto a rocky dirt trail leading out to gigantic cliffs overlooking the Atlantic. We'd started to get our bearings and could see our next destination in the distance — the Fortaleza de Sagres.

Brad and January moved to New York from the mountains of Colorado. Brad works for a digital agency in Brooklyn. He travels to justify the purchase of an expensive digital SLR camera. January is a creative director at a New York City advertising agency. She travels to expand her worldview, get out of her comfort zone, and to learn all the different ways a toilet can flush.
