Sintra, a half day trip

A first time trip to Lisbon is incomplete without visiting Sintra, so one day was dedicated to that picturesque town. For some reasons I was under the impression it was called Sinatra, it’s not.

Lisbon, a refreshing retreat

Not going to lie I was happy to leave Marrakech and return to familiarity in Lisbon, despite the fact that I’d never been there. I felt like I belonged in Portugal from the moment I stepped into the arrivals hall. Without a second thought I hopped on the metro to the hotel to be reunited […]
