We recently spent five days in Lisbon, the capital and tourist centre of Portugal.
The selfie sticks, fanny packs, and Tilley hats were everywhere. However, since we were visiting during shoulder season, I’m sure it is nothing in comparison to what the locals are used to seeing during the summer months.
Lisbon had all the hustle and bustle of a large tourist town and given the beauty of the city, and the charm of the locals, it was easy to look beyond the throngs of tourists to enjoy this incredibly interesting, historic capital.
We are definitely not the first, nor will we be the last, but wow, that was a long time to be on a runway. Our departure from Grenada was going smoothly, we had our last Carib, said our goodbyes, waltzed through security, and stood around the steaming airport waiting to board our plane. View Post
