Hello lovelies! I’m sorry for being a little MIA here on the blog, but there is just quite a bit happening in my life right now, that I really had to take some time for myself. I will talk more about what’s going very soon, but in the meantime, to stay up to date, you can always follow along on Instagram.
I still have 2 more posts (after this one) to share with you on my trip to Portugal so hopefully I will be able to share them both next week. For today, I’m sharing some more pictures of Lisbon which I didn’t include last time. I could not but include images of the world known Bica funicular (tram). If you google Lisbon, images of this street with two trams will be one of the first results showing. It is one of the steepest streets where two trams going in the opposite directions can go through. It also has a walkway for pedestrians (let’s just say walking down in heels will be hard on the knees) but what makes it most beautiful is a mix of colours of the buildings, of the trams and blue of the Tagus river, all intertwined with the wires crisscrossing the street.
I’m also sharing a few night time pictures I took including picture of Belém Tower, Santa Maria de Belém and few other tranquil streets and restaurant in Lisbon.

Our second last day we also had to visit the absolutely beautiful beach Praia da Ursa. It is a spectacular view of this beach from up top, but if you really want to enjoy it, make sure you hike down and spend a day. You will feel like you are cut off from the world on one of the most beautiful beaches. Little reminder for those of you little uncomfortable with nudity: this is a beach which allows nudists. Most people are wearing bathing suits, but there are a few nudists as well. You can even camp on this beach. I made a mental note of this for the next time. What an amazing experience would that be. And make sure to wear sneakers for the lengthy hike to the beach. Preferably don’t wear white sneakers like me, because by the end of the day, they will be more brown then white, from the ground dust.
Lastly, we stopped in the beautiful town of Sintra. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to stay long as we spent most of the day at the beach, but we got to walk around this gem of a town at least a little. Narrow streets, more hills, and a beautiful castle. You will need at least one full day to explore the town. Just be ready for the crowds and cooler temperatures then Lisbon.
In the next two posts we’ll be exploring Portugal’s beautiful Algarve region. Until then, enjoy these pictures and start planning your trip to Portugal.
