Good morning! I’m sorry if you missed me yesterday, I went out of town over the weekend and got back late Sunday night so I didn’t have time to prepare a post. But today I have a post on Portugal. Like I did with Morocco, I will post the food shots in a separate post.
The first few pictures are from my first full day in Portugal. I arrived on Tuesday evening and met up with a friend of my aunt’s for dinner then just went back to my hotel. But on Saturday I headed out early and walked around Lisbon to go sightseeing.
I asked someone to take a picture of me, it was a little washed out, but when you travel alone you have to rely on strangers for pictures.
Next I walked up to St. George’s Castle.
Unfortunately the line to get in the castle was so long and I had so much more I wanted to see so I decided to forgo taking the castle tour.
Shots for a dollar? I passed.
After the castle I took a bus to Belem. There I saw the Padrão dos Descobrimentos, a statue in Belem.
After I toured Belem I made my way back to the center of Lisbon. I went to the Time Out Mercado da Ribeira in Cais do Sodre.
The next morning, on Friday, I was supposed to fly home but my flight was cancelled due to an airline strike by the Portuguese airline. Instead, I was stuck in Lisbon an extra night so I spent the extra day trying to stuff in a little more sightseeing.
I walked up to an area that had nice views of Lisbon and read a book.
