The wonderful Lisbon

March 8, 2013

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!


  1. I love San Francisco, so maybe I would like Lisbon as much!? I've always wanted to go to Spain, but you are painting a pretty nice picture of Portugal as well. :)

    1. I'm sure you will! I love both cities now.

      And Spain is amazing as always and you should go to both!

  2. yay! it was so fun seeing these since i was just in those exact places!!

  3. loved lisbon. glad you had a nice time too!
