I have been meaning to post this since I got back from my trip to Canada! So here it is!
On our way back from Toronto, we had a day layover in Lisbon, Portugal. Not an overnight, just a few hours between flights. So we decided to go exploring… It is a beautiful city!
We didn’t have a plan for what we should see, so I’m sure we missed loads of sights! But we took the subway to Cais do Sodre and just started walking!
Our first stop was the Mercado Da Ribeira, a huge indoor market with restaurant stalls and loads of fresh veggies, meat and fish! (I’m a vegetarian so I stayed away from the meat stalls! )
After that, we just walked through town enjoying the city streets and interesting buildings!
What I love the most are the narrow streets and interesting buildings! I could have taken a picture of every single street it was so beautiful!
This little square was so beautiful and the bar in the archway is such a cute place!
Without knowing it we headed in the right direction and arrived in the museum area and at the Arco da Rua Augusta. I’m going to have to read up on the history of it all!
The square was beautiful as well!
We also walked to the waterfront and saw the National Sanctuary of Christ the King from across the water!
Even the streetcar was decorated for Christmas! So cute!
Finally here’s a picture of me in the city!
I was so happy since it has been my #bucketlist item to visit Lisbon since I was 14 years old! It wasn’t a long visit, but hopefully one day I can go back and sight-see properly!
Thank you Lisbon for a wonderful afternoon! I’ll be back! #Wanderlust
