For those of you who don’t want to read about my holiday, tune out for the next 10 days, after which normal service eg me running, moaning about running and all it entails will resume. This blog is for the relics left behind in sunny ( ?!!!) Devon house and pet sitting and for my friend in Canada to hopefully brighten her convalescence! XX
We arrived in Lisbon late last night after a lengthy trip brought about by a return to Bristol after being in the air for half an hour due to a hydraulic leek! I had visions of being stuck for hours but in the end only a two hour delay, apologies to those traveling to Spain, whose plane we ended up using!
Today we opted for the hop on hop off open top bus tour. Surely the best way to see a city and save your feet. Our bus took us out to Belem to the Tower
Loved seeing the “Monument to the Discoveries’, amazing monument with incredible detail
I am loving Lisbon. I love the mixture of old and new, (traditional tiled buildings right next to modern ones), tatty and smart (run down pizza joint right next to shop selling designer shoes and handbags). I love the tiles, the path designs, not loving the unevenness of the paths-did a Mo Farah and saved myself from a potentially awful fall today-but only just, but on the upside managed to provide some amusement to a passing stranger in the process!
