Lisboa

Who doesn't love Portugal?!!! I'm in love with the food and the history, we visited in the Summer of 2014 and the memories of this trip are those that last a lifetime. I have visited Lisboa once before but this second time was like if it was the first, walking in the Portuguese capital is an incredible experience.

But first things first, we attended a family member social event at the magnificent Mafra Palace...

Quedé impresionada con la capital Lusa desde la primera vez que estuve allí, así que estaba muy emocionada de tener la oportunidad de volver a recorrerla. Lo primero fue hacer acto de presencia en un evento social que un familiar había organizado en el magnífico Palacio de Mafra...

We were lucky, that day the princess was in the palace, but she was not happy to see us, ah! the mamarazzi.

Ese día la princesa estaba en el palacio.

Charming streets, delicious food and a sunny bright day made for the perfect mood to walk and get lost in Lisbon...

Que suerte tuvimos que nos tocará un día soleado, perfecto para recorrer la ciudad.
