Lisbon, april 2014!

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal. It is the westernmost large city located in continental Europe,  as well as its westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries.

For me this trip was my first ever to Portugal and i was very excited to experience Lisbon. We had 6 days here so besides beeing only in Lisbon we rented a car one day and drove to Cascais, Estoril, Cabo da Roca and Sintra. We also went out to Belem and The Oceanario not far from Lisbon another day.

Lisbon was great, an old city with lots of lush hills and many yellow trams. As we where there in the easter vacation we often had sunny days with nice temperatures. The days went at World heritage sites, museums, shopping, eating amazing seafood  and relaxing at view points on the many hills, at night time we went to Bairro Alto for great Caipirinhas.
