Lisbon From Another Angle

I am in love with Portugal! My husband think it is because it was my first experience in Europe. Maybe… The only thing I know is that I want to go again and again. Well next time I go I want to explore the south coast, traveling on car from Lisbon to Algarve.

We had the chance to visit Lisbon briefly this time (our 2nd time), only for a day. But we were able to see Lisbon particularly from another angle. Places that last year we saw with details, that we visited personally like the Monument Of the Discoveries, the Lisbon Cathedral, Sao Jorge Castle, the Belem Tower and other things, this time we admire them from another angle, from the water side.

We left Lisbon in the afternoon. We went to the top deck of our cruise, along with everybody else to wave goodbye to the vibrant old city. While our ship sail slowly through the Rio Tejo (Tagus River)toward the ocean, seagulls display an airshow for us. They flown so close to us, that you can even see into their eyes.

 

 

 

 

A very different view was seeing the 25 Abril Bridge form under…

Check the video and see with me the 25 Abril Bridge from another angle!! Excuse the wind noise… I tried to reduce the sound or at least I thought I did.

Until then,

Dream with Me! Dreaming with the South Coast of Portugal

20140226-150749.jpgTo plan my next big trip, first I have to dream about it. It’s not official yet, it is just in my head for now…I would like to go back to Portugal, this time to visit the south coast. In my dream I want to rent a car and drive all the coastline from Lisbon to at least Faro, so that  includes but not limit Sagres, Lagos, Albuferia and Faro. In other words all the Algarve region. If we do this trip will be at the end of the year, maybe October or November 2014.

Meanwhile, see why I am dreaming about this!
