Portugal Part 1

I took so many photos on this trip that I can't possibly show you all of them, but rather an edited collection which I know will still make you want to visit Portugal.

These are some photos I took in Lisbon, where we spent the first three days of our trip.

Lisbon is built on a hill so it has lots of steep steps,

also lots of little alleyways and arches...

and roads barely wide enough for the tram.

The wider avenues have very intricate patterns in the cobblestones,

and the older houses are often decorated with beautiful tiles.

You can't visit Lisbon without checking out this sardine shop - all it sells are tins of beautifully packaged sardines!
