polaroid of the week portugal lisbon

We just spent a little over three weeks in Portugal’s capital, and this city became one of our favorite in Europe. We took our time to explore all the diverse neighborhoods, climbed up to the top of the city’s seven hills, sampled dozens of the famous ‘Pasteles de nata’, Lisbon’s trademark pastries and enjoyed lazy days at the nearby beaches. We loved the typical tiled houses, the classic yellow trams that continue to climb up and down the steep hills, the countless mom-n-pop restaurants (and lack of chains), and narrow alleyways in the Alfama neighborhood. We could have easily spent another three weeks in Lisbon and can’t wait to get back to what we consider Europe’s most laid-back and beautiful capital.

  1. Lisbon looks like a beautiful city. My cousin is engaged to a man from Portugal, and I’m sort of hoping they decide to do a destination wedding there. I think any excuse to visit Portugal would be a good one.

    1. Ooh, that would be an awesome excuse! If you happen to not find a dress before hand, I found the style in Portugal to be so great, too, so you could maybe pick up something to wear there. Everything is loose-fitting, flowing and beautifully designed. If you get the chance to visit, we honestly haven’t been so pleasantly surprised by a place in ages!

    1. If you guys get the chance, check out Lisbon. It’s cheap compared to Spain/Italy and the beaches are amazing. There were only two McDonalds in the city, and almost no other major chains – we didn’t miss them one bit!

    1. Thanks! We put up a photo of the day over on Facebook, too, so you can check out facebook.com/globetrottergirlsfanpage for loads more pics!
