lisboa, portugal.

sweet graffiti, intricate mosaics and amazing nightlife.


my thoughts exactly.

ah, lisboa! this vibrant capital city charmed me the moment i arrived: with its colorful mosaic/tile-adorned buildings and limestone patterned streets, maniacal street graffiti, and impressive architecture i was in awe of it’s unique beauty. from the crowded city center of rossio to the tranquil top of castelo st jorge, lisbon provides its visitors with incredible views of the city. at night we ventured into the wild warren of streets that make up the barrio alto: steep, cobbled streets and stone steps connecting bars and restaurants, filled with music and full of revelers. the sun is strong, but the winds blow strong and cool off the water, making every day perfect for exploring…

  4. Wow your photo’s are wonderful! I love the one of the lights on the ceiling in black and white and also the Portuguese tiles (azulejos). I see you saw the chapito circus school – I love that building with the big crazy pictures on the side of it.

  5. man, i came over here to say welcome back and that your pictures from greece are GORGEOUS…and now you’re back in europe again! lucky girl! :)

  6. Awesome images, great writing! Makes me feel like I’m there.

  7. There pictures remind us our family trip here last year. It made a difference having the freedom of a car, we hired one for two weeks and saw so much more, we saved quite a bit of time and convenience getting here and moving on. We really had a great time, we are thinking of coming back.

  10. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
