Lisboa, Lisbon, Lissabon?

Happy Easter, everyone!

This week we spent 4 days in Lisbon and it was really great! We didn’t get to see everything, so I definitely have to go back there before my exchange ends, but it’s only 3 hours away by train, so that will not be a problem. I took 175 pictures, but after a harsh half an hour I managed to cut it down to this:

People at the beach in Terreiro do Paço in April, haha, I love it!

Maybe Lisbon’s biggest tourist attraction: the yellow tram

More fado

Like I said, we had a good time in Lisbon, but there were some things that we didn’t get to do, so I will try to go back soon. Maybe already next weekend, but we will see. Right now we are in Peniche, the city where Signe, my Norwegian friend who I’m travelling with, lived with her family when she was four! We arrived yesterday and got to see the sunset from some cliffs by the ocean. Today we went to Óbidos and it was so nice! I will try to update you as soon as possible with the new pictures.

Enjoy your last day of Easter holiday tomorrow! We are going home to Porto to celebrate a friend’s birthday!
