For my 800th blog post I’ve chosen three random images from Portugal. I just like them! This one was made in Lisbon.
Morning commute, Lisbon.
Fortaleza Wall. Fortaleza was where Henry the Navigator set up his school of navigation in the fifteenth century. Some of Portugal’s most famous explorers got their training here.

Just outside Lisbon, sitting high above the town of Sintra, Palácio National da Pena was an unexpected travel treat.
It’s a crazy mixture of architecture, colors, towers, tile and tourists. A super fun place to visit. It’s well worth an afternoon if you’re ever in the area.
Some might label it kitsch! One of my favorite places of the trip!
Window and tile detail.

Coimbra is a university town with a beautiful historic center.
University students selling pencils to fundraise for graduation expenses. The university is the most prestigious in Portugal.
Like I said, it’s a university town! The Universidade de Coimbra was the first in Portugal and one of the first in Europe.
Olive and Alice explore the narrow lanes of the old town.

We arrived after dark. In the morning this was the scene just outside our door.
Old, colorful buildings.
People walking to work along the Rio Douro. It was so unhurried, calm and serene. Porto!

Olive and Cooper walk along the Rio Douro in Porto, Portugal. Porto is one of the most picturesque cities I’ve ever visited. Everywhere you look there’s a view. This photo was made with a plastic camera on film!
