Cais do Sodré, The Pink Street

After a week in Morocco, we flew to Lisbon. I'm amazed that I hadn't heard anyone rave about this city before—I fell in love it's charm pretty quickly. 

The weather was just right, not too hot or cold. The mosaic streets of Alfama were charming, leading to the main square, beautiful in the sunset glow. The views from Rua Augusta Arch are breathtaking, on one side a gorgeous city with surrounding hills and historic charm, on the other the wide open ocean. The restaurants are quaint and intriguing. Most have a warm and cozy feel, serving tapas and Portuguese wine.

We visited the Monastery of JerónimosBelem Tower, and São Jorge Castle. I enjoyed the experience of seeing these, but truly I could've ate, drank, and wandered my way through Lisbon.

I left Lisbon feeling like I hadn't had enough time. So Lisbon, until we meet again...
