Portuguese, spoken in Portugal, is a strange language. I wasn't able to pin its sound down. At times, it sounds like Spanish, then Dutch, and then Russian. It even has hints of a Scottish English. For instance, Lagos, a beautiful city in the south of Portugal, is pronounced Lago'shhh'. It sounds like something Sean Connery would say.
The beaches in the south of Portugal, pictured below, are some of finest I've ever seen in the world. It's high on my list of places to visit again.
