I flew to Lisbon from Toronto and it was a direct 6 hour flight. I took it easy for the first couple of days since my jet lag was pretty horrible. I slept at weird times and completely missed breakfast from the hotel because I kept waking up late. Our hotel was centrally located (and not on a hill, thank god!) so we walked everywhere. I have blisters as proof of my rigorous walking workout.
Lisbon is pretty similar to San Francisco. The weather is the same, the hills, and the tram! I was so happy for the mild winter weather because I didn't want to wear my chunky boots again for 3 weeks. I was happy to escape the winter wonderland and snowstorm's from Toronto.
The photos above were taken from Praça do Comércio or Terreiro do Paço square. It's filled with restaurants and a marvelous waterfront view!
I was soo happy that I had to fly back to Toronto via Lisbon again so I went back there for a second time and truly fell even more in love with this city!
