My Lisbon Advice: GO! Rent an apartment and make yourself at home. Wander around, get lost, sit at a cafe all day, bring a bottle of wine down to the city center at night and lounge, pick out random restaurants based on smell, bar hop in Bairro Alto, shop in Chiado, listen to Fado. I think all too often vacations are over planned or someone spends the entire time with their nose in a guide book. This is not one of those vacations. Lisbon is a manageable size with kind people, good food, and a laid back vibe. Just go with the flow and you will have the greatest time ever. We did.
I hate falling for the janky souvenir traps, so I was determined to get a few good quality items, but most importantly: Shoes! Thankfully Jordan of Oh, Happy Day was in Lisbon just before us and had posted about some amazing handmade leather shoes. I could have spent all day at We3 trying them on. I have a feeling this won’t be my last pair of Catarina Martins.
We enjoyed a stroll through the Botanical Garden, it felt like dinosaurs were going to appear at any moment. More pictures…
Why does Europe get all the cute little cars? I want an old Renault 4.
Hope you enjoyed our pictures from Lisbon! Sorry there were so many… can you tell I am new to the digital camera world?
