P.S It’s a travel diary not a travel guide.
Let’s follow the skies, search deep in ourselves, make love with our hearts.
When I was little, I used to watch the skies a lot. I would follow the clouds dance above my head, I would see them getting dispersed by the wind. There was something about the sky that has always attracted me. The freedom the birds would have it in the sky, the freedom one has by traveling across the earth and traveling. I dreamed and wished to the sky that one day I would be sitting in an airport writing about my experiences and share it with my friends. And here I am today, typing away.
Lisbon welcomed us at the end of January with bright sun, warm — spring like weather. Getting around was extremely easy, as a tourist you have plenty of options to explore the city. Be aware that walking can be a challenge due to Lisbon being built on 7 hills.
I believe each city has its charm and essence, that can be discovered only by exploring. I will leave the photos to tell the story of Lisbon, to reveal some of its essence and maybe encourage you to discover Lisbon or the city you’ve been dreaming about exploring.

As the sun was setting, the colour pallet was changing, mother nature never stops.
Mosteiro dos Jerónimos
Belem Tower was probably my favourite part of the whole trip. I recommend catching the sunset there, it is truly breath taking.
Usually each trip brings answers, but here I was leaving Lisbon, saying my last goodbyes to the sun and I was still; no answers, no questions, just me.
My diary entry says : “A time to reflect. I can feel change happening.” I am not sure what it was. As I was exploring Lisbon with my friends, I started to have this sweet taste of spring in my mouth. All my senses were awaken and I could feel the change, the rebirth of nature. Call me crazy but I kept asking my friends throughout the trip: “can you feel it?”.
Until next time dear reader,
