I know this is not seasonally appropriate, but that’s the whole point of The Jungle Fever anyway – the fantasy of a far-off escape. Preferably someplace warm and tropical. With margaritas.
The dream destination pictured here: the Portuguese coast. I recently discovered photographer Kerry Murray’s charming photos of the region, where she lives and works, and I fell in love with their faded, vintage-y quality. I have fond memories of road tripping through Lisbon and southern Portugal during my year abroad in Spain, but never properly explored the beaches. Murray’s tiny towns and sun-kissed coasts have me hoping for a 2014 Portuguese vacation.
