Lisbon, Portugal

May 9, 2011 - Burlington, Vermont, United States

Lisbon - our last stop.  We decided not to do anything with Serenity people or with organized tours, as we were here a few years ago and loved the city and wanted to just go off on our own.  It was one of the best days of the entire cruise.

Lisbon is a wonderful city !  Especially on a sunny day with 75* temps.  It was the first European city we've visited in 4 months.  We love the people, the colors, the rag-tag appearance of crumbling walls and laundry hanging from balconies;  the black and white stone streets and all the tiled buildings ...  we took about 200 photos each.  Red tile roofs, Fado music playing, belvederes and overlooks everywhere.  Street musicians and funny old characters strolling around.  Neat little outdoor cafe with fresh fish and a clay jug of local vino.

It was a wonderful day at the close of a wonderful trip.

If you have a chance to visit Lisbon, do it.  It's a great place !
