Two days in a row. I’m on a roll!!!
Today I left Madrid and took my first solo flight EVER. It was an hour from Madrid to Lisbon and I basically fell asleep as soon as I sat down and woke up as we were getting ready to land.
What I’ve learned about Lisbon so far is:
- There are A LOT of hills
- It’s smaller than I expected.
- It’s gorgeous
- The weather is perfect. Not scalding like Madrid but not cold either.
So far I’ve seen the Atlantic ocean (Technically the Rio Tejo), a flea market, a few cool statues, an inside fruit market with a big foodcourt, A street that is literally pink, and taken a nap. For less than 12 hours in Portugal that feels like a good start!
Tomorrow I think I’m going to go to see the Tower of Belem and maybe look for the castle here which I couldn’t find today. It’s a hike up but I think i’ll enjoy it.
I walked 8.9miles today (14.4km) so I’m heading to bed pretty early.
Talk tomorrow I hope!
