So I titled this second throwback holiday blog as ‘Memorable Lisbon’. Memorable for numerous reason; two of those reasons being that it was my FIRST holiday with my partner (he’s originally from Portugal) & my first time going somewhere else in Europe.
There’s another reason why this holiday was memorable, but I think I’ll keep you guessing. A bit of mystery is good, right?
This holiday, along with my previous holiday to Jamaica (read my blog about it here), sealed my love for traveling; as all the future posts will convey.
In regards to the fashion side of things, I absolutely LOVED this jumpsuit. Heck! I LOVED the WHOLE LOOK!
A little story for you; when I went to Jamaica, the same year, I took those shoes with me & people loved them (I had the grey in it also) so much, that I ended up giving them away.
It was a bittersweet parting as I had only worn them a few times but at least someone else can look fabulous in them now!
Everywhere we walked, there was something to capture our attention.
However, if you found that your feet were getting a little tired (as we did) & fancied a sit down, walking further ahead would bring you to an open area by the sea where people sat whilst enjoying the sunshine & as if that wasn’t enough; there was an ice-cream van nearby selling delicious ice-cream!
Strolling through this part of Lisbon was beautiful; there were numerous people selling their artwork, there were fashionable stores and A LOT of restaurants.
Whilst walking past these restaurants, there were waiters who tried to seduce us with their delicious-looking menus.
I must say, a few did manage to convince us to stop & experience what they had on offer & we were VERY pleased with our meals!
I guess you could say their ‘seduction’ worked!
The tour was lovely & I would totally recommend it as we were able to drive to parts of the city that we wouldn’t have been able to see if we had taken a bigger vehicle.
Another way to see a bit more of the city was by doing a Segway tour. It took a while to get the hang of using a segway but the tour guides were really patient whilst teaching us, & once we got to grips with it, controlling it came naturally.
Like the Tuk Tuks, it allowed us to go through areas of Lisbon that weren’t frequently traveled by tourists; having a knowledgeable tour guide added to the journey as a whole.
Whilst here, my partner arranged for us to have a boat ride with Tagus River Sunset Cruise. It was quite late in the evening, which I think made it even more of a lovely & romantic occasion.
On the boat ride, we were offered glasses of champagne whilst we watched the sunset – a perfect end to our evening.
I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane of mine & my partner’s first holiday abroad.
