I Heart Lisbon
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...
