Lisbon was definitely the most enjoyable part of our European Trip. Don't get me wrong, I love Paris so much. I just feel like I didn't fully enjoy it because we only had 4 1/2 days there while it's a BIG CITY! We spent a total of 5 1/2 days in Lisbon including some wonderful day trips to Belem, Cascais and Sintra, Portugal. I can't wait to share about these towns later on the blog. In comparison, we were more relax in Lisbon compared with the time we spent in Paris. Just like a first time tourist or a traveler, I wanted to see many things in the beautiful city of love hence we were always on the go, we were always on our feet exploring. Next time I go to Paris, it will be a more pleasant trip. :)
Anyway, here's some pictures from the charming Lisbon. I don't hear or read many things about the city and it's a shame because I think it's so UNDERRATED! At first, it wasn't really a city I look forward to visit because I'm so basic sometimes, I want to see the popular places first hehe. It was chosen by my bf because he never had the chance to visit a place in Portugal yet. Thanks a lot to my lovveee! It was such a wonderful trip, Lisbon is such a mesmerizing place.
There is just something about this city that is so endearing, maybe because the people are extremely friendly ( if you're from Portugal and reading this, "MUITO OBRIGADO") and oh the food is so great! It's kind of a hippie city in Europe and I love it so much. It's so different from cities like London and Paris. I think the most gorgeous pictures of our travel are from Lisbon! You'll see why on my next posts about this idyllic city of Portugal. I'm so in love with this city!
The old cable cars or "trams" still exist in Lisbon and I think they add some charms on the city. They are now replacing them with more advance cable cars, hope they won't completely be relegated.
Did you know that Lisbon is known for their breathtaking views? When I see a panoramic view of this city, I can guess right away that it is this charming city. These pictures were taken at Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara on our first day in Lisbon. Miradouros means viewpoints, there are many in Lisbon where you can see marvelous panoramic views of the city and this is just one of them. Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcantara is located close to Bairro Alto which is one of Lisbon’s central districts. From here you'll see a breath taking view of the city including São Jorge Castle (St. George’s Castle). We walk up hill but there is also a funicular that you can take. This viewpoint is basically a park, with pretty flowers and fountains. A nice area to just relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the city.
I'm such a bad blogger and I'm really sorry for that! haha I promise I'll try to post more on the blog. I am almost done editing pictures from our travel. :D
Have a nice week you guys!
