LISBON, PORTUGAL
Wednesday, July 9, 2014





So as promised, am jotting down a little bit about my days in Lisbon, Portugal. And I was so glad to be around during the World Cup season because the window displays were entertaining; "Keep Calm, We Have Ronaldo". Hahaha. Tapi dah kalah dah pun Portugal ni, and congrats Germany for humiliating Brazil. Sobs. Macam lah kau tengok pun kan. Haha. InshaaAllah, will be going to Germany again in December to see my parents! Yeay. Rinduuu.





Back to the main topic, Lisbon really has it all. The sun and the sea. And normally, I just go to the usual tourist spots which I have done this rather consistently (i.e. visiting the tourist attractions) even in my years in Malaysia. This time around, I'll admit that I didn't know much about Lisbon before going but I trust my travel instinct, booked the tickets and just GO. Haha. Travel instict katanya.





This was my first time in Lisbon, so I can't really give any advice as an expert. But, please avoid to visit Lisbon during summer. It is BOILING HOT. 40 degrees. Sobs. Anyway, I did enjoy visiting this vibrant, colourful and nostalgic city though. Walaupun mulut tak habis-habis membebel, hoi panasnya! Hahaha. Tapi memang betul pun, extremely HOT.









And I really enjoy the street art and graffiti through the centre of Lisbon. They are so creative with ideas and inspiration. Sometimes, it reminded me a lot of Barcelona, but less touristy. And those colourful streets, pastel houses are something that I was longing to see.  





Tram No 28 is a MUST! Soo vintage looking kan! Major love for this one. It will take you to the most interesting places of the town. And I love it when it passes through the narrowest and steepest streets, you can see the daily Lisbon life, Portuguese style. Hehe.












Walking in 40 degree heat can be very tiring. So, a trip to the beach is needed to cool off. Hehe. This is Cascais, a little bit out of Lisbon town but still reachable by train.





This red bridge is one of the Lisbon icons and best seen from the distance. Cantik. It makes you feel like you are in the States or maybe in Rio Brazil, that Christ statue. 





One of my hobbies is capturing the flowers. Hehe. And this was definitely taken somewhere in Lisbon. Love the colour. 





Hmmm, maybe I should go to Porto next. Hiks. Have a nice day lovelies!
