#1 visit a new country

I've just returned from Lisbon, Portugal. 
A few days away without children.
It was certainly a different type of city break.
Lisbon is an absolutely gorgeous city.
The architecture was amazing and all the painted buildings.
The weather was perfect for walking and exploring.
We ate lots (lots of seafood) and ate far too many Portugese custard tarts.
My favorite place was the Botanical Gardens, although neglected and rundown it had so many lovely trees and plants. 

We photographed many doors.

Recognise the bridge?
It's the same as the one in SF.

I was so tempted to start weeding!

 The monastery, stunning.

I would definitely return and I would love to visit more of Portugal,  although I had to promise to take the children next time.
