Lisbon is an amazing and underrated European city. 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 Jerónimos, Belem 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 with it's tiled walls and cobblestone streets.
I left Lisbon feeling like I hadn't had enough time. So Lisbon, until we meet again...
Montenegro is Croatia’s smaller neighbor, and a total gem. We explored the medieval fortresses, snorkeled the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, and swam through sea caves.
Porto is city filled with beautiful tiled buildings, medieval castles, cobblestone streets, delicious seafood, good wine, and friendly people.
Below Paris is an entire underground tunnel filled with the skeletons of over 6 million people.
Bordeaux is a beautiful and quaint French city, in the middle of France’s famed wine region. It was mostly built in the 18th century from limestone, so as you walk down the cobblestone streets it feels like you’ve stepped back in time. It’s also a food and wine lovers dream come true!
Zarace Beach has crystal clear blue water against a rocky landscape. It’s a stunning cove that's quiet and serene.

The three most prominent islands are Mykonos, Santorini and Crete, so we thought that'd be a good selection for our journey.

Besides the obvious Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc De Triomphe, and Notredame, I recommend these 5 things that were highlights of my past trips to the "city of lights."
