Lisbon: You could say we embraced the rain

My Adventures Abroad

Some of my friends and I made the last minute decision to take a ten hour bus ride to Lisbon, Portugal.

The bus was as awful as it sounds like, but when we arrived in Lisbon we were filled with magical adrenaline and hit the streets to explore!

We tried some Portuguese pastries, admired the tiles on the buildings and started to map out what we wanted to see during our three days there.

We were having a fabulous time, just like Kim, my wonderful boss at PLU, hoped we were.

We hiked up to the Torre de Belem and fought the wind to stay grounded.

We took the train out to Sintra and found a palace and a castle hidden in a beautiful forest.

We also went to a monastery, art museum and another castle!

I’m extremely grateful I got to explore this beautiful city with these amazing people!
