Actual date of this event: 7 February
Luke and I made a quick weekend trip to Lisbon last weekend. Our thought process was that February is one of the worst months to travel (unless you are skiing) because it is usually the coldest month. All you folks in the US can attest to that, right? Anyway, we used the googlewebs to figure out that Lisbon, Portugal is the warmest place in Europe to go (of the places on our list) during the month of February. And with our trip back to the United Stated coming up soon, it just so happened to be that the best weekend to go to Lisbon was my birthday weekend! Woohooooo (except my actual birthday wasn't quite the best birthday ever)!
Luke was not expecting much from Lisbon, but he was blown away! We took 1,100 pictures between the two of us, but he alone took over 900. In just two days! Not even 48 hours!! Do you think we liked Lisbon? Yes, we really really liked Lisbon! With that being said, I am struggling to sift through pictures, so here are a few of my favorites to hold us over until I can get up the strength to narrow it down to under 100. Note: Sifting through these pictures felt like choosing the best wedding pictures for THE wedding album. Except that task was easier because, duh, you obviously choose the ones where the bride looks the best!
Sangria originated in Portugal (not Spain), and many of the mixtures I had in Lisbon included beer.
