Where My Heart Is

Wandering The Streets of Lisbon

Just over a year ago, I accompanied David on a work trip to Lisbon. I really did not know what to expect. Lisbon doesn’t seem to get the publicity that a lot of other European capitals do.

But wow, does it have it all…good hotels and restaurants, culture and history, night life (not that I saw any) and entertainment, great shopping, museums and art galleries, wonderful service and fantastic value for money.

I just loved wandering the streets of this culturally rich and charming city…it really is a photographer’s delight.

I think this is the beginning of a long love-affair. I’ll be back for sure.

Have you ever been surprised by a destination either good or bad?

This really looks like my kind of place. I just love the tiles!

The moorish influence is everywhere. I just regret that I didn’t buy any azulejos (decorative ceramic tiles).

As always, gorgeous pics! I love how you’ve collaged with the tiles. Next time you’re in Portugal I recommend Evora … it’s a busride east and it was our little surprise of a place :)

Thanks Amanda. I’ll definitely put Evora on my bucket list.
