exploring lisbon: a mini travel guide

Kate ParrishComment

oh, lisbon. oh, portugal. we were completely won over by this country and i'm so excited to start sharing some of our photos from this crazy cool city. when we arrived we immediately felt at home by our charming airbnb host, eduardo. i cannot get over the portugese people. so welcoming and so loving – and so excited to share their country with you. eduardo took us out for a "typical portuguese friday night" and we managed to party with him until 3am in the bairro alto district [followed by one of his favorite african dance clubs]. we were so exhausted, but apparently 2am is when things are really getting started in this town. 

our time in lisbon had such a mix of experiences which is what i loved most about this city. walking around, everything basically feels like some form of art. there is such charm in all of the cobblestone streets, cable cars, tiled walls, delicious food & wine [vinho verde!] and overall cool vibes. every turn held something different, and we couldn't stop admiring the pastel colored homes, detailed wooden doors and unique historical architecture. with their history dating back hundreds of years and the young energy in the city today, lisbon is a capital city that must not be missed. 

here are a bunch of favorite photos from around the city – eating, drinking and getting lost, and the full travel guide can be found here
