Portugal

Country #48

The West of Europe,
Hilly, calming, vivacious,
Pastéis de nata.

In 2014, my wife and I went on a long weekend break to Lisbon. The weather was lovely, and we stayed in a very funky hotel which used to be a school, and were upgraded for free to the suite which always improves a holiday. The hilly streets of Lisbon were at once both calming and vivacious. Highlights were the lovely architecture of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the views from the Castelo de São Jorge, and the many pastéis de nata that we enjoyed tremendously.
