During the one week off for carnival in the Netherlands, I took off for a first visit to Portugal. I knew very little about Portugal, and had absolutely zero expectations. Despite rainy gloomy weather most days I visited, I can summarize my visit to Lisbon and Sintra as a huge success. Once again, I found my ignorance astounding. Portugal is a gorgeous city, with a long and grand history, beautiful architecture, friendly locals, remarkable scenic views, and some of the most international xpat friendly environment I met. There was so much to see and do that I couldn’t sit still, up early in the morning till way past midnight I found myself wondering around and completely overwhelmed with all that surrounded me.

 

Lots of tales to share, but – as usual – I’ll start off by giving you a general feel for my explorations with a series of photos. I give you my visions of Lisbon Portugal…
