Lisbon, oh how I love thee! On my first trip to Lisbon a couple of weeks ago I fell in love with this Portuguese city and its eye-catching tiles and flaky custard tarts. It’s a city that puts its history and culture right out there. Wandering its streets and alleys shows you unexpected surprises at every corner, be it a gorgeously tiled building, a fabulous little bar or the most beautiful views over the city and the water. I just couldn’t get enough of it!
Did I mention the food? I still salivate at the thought of it, all that fresh fish, the beautiful wines and oh the pasteis de nata. The people of Lisbon know how to put on a meal. We didn’t stop eating the whole time we were there, from the moment we arrived a delicious imaginative seafood lunch, to copious amounts of port and cheese, and the cured meat! Divine!
Lisbon is a city with so much to offer. I could have happily stayed there all week rather than just 3 days. There is so much to explore in and around the city. It truly is a capital of an empire! I hope these snaps inspire you to explore the city…. and the world!!
