Wandering About: Lisbon

wandering about

I’ve showed many places I’ve visited throughout the years, some many awesome places, but while in Portugal this past weeks, I realized that I haven’t mentioned my gorgeous city of Lisbon yet. Now, when I’m in Lisbon I rarely go sightseeing, because I’ve lived there most of my life, and my first instinct is not to snap photos, but I took the opportunity that I had to visit downtown a couple of times to meet friends, and I took some pictures of that part of town.

I’ll only show 2 parts of the Lisbon Downtown, because I didn’t have time to explore further, and the weather wasn’t helping. On the first day I went to the Baixa-Chiado zone:

The second day I managed to go to Lisbon, again, to have lunch with the same friends as before, I went to a slightly different zone, right beside the other one, and I went down to Praça do Comércio and then right back up to Rossio and Restauradores, through Rua Augusta. I know this is all gibberish to you, so I’ll give you pictures. Too bad about the rain though…

Unfortunately, this is it. I promise to try to snag more pictures of different places of Lisbon the next times I’m there, deal?

I’m leaving, on a airplane…

… But I’ll be back in a week! LOL. I’m leaving today to go HOME!!! Oh yeah, I’m really needing a few days with family and friends. I’ve already packed and came to 2 startling realizations, first, every single t-shirt I set aside to take with me (a.k.a. my most worn pieces of clothing) are all fandom related! Yup!

Second realization, my suitcase has around 27 books inside right now… and the only purpose of even taking clothes is to not damage my precious books!

My TBR shelf here is considerably lighter, but I can’t hold on to all my read and unread books here, so I just left those that I’ll probably get around to in the next 3 months.

I’ll probably ease up on the posting in the next few days, I suspect I’ll have a somewhat filled week, between helping my brother and sister in law furnish their new house, seeing some friends that I haven’t seen in months, being with my sister, hugging my nieces – because I miss the both of them so so much, and obviously, spending some time with my dad (I live in his house and all…). 😀

But I’ll be around and I’ll be on twitter a lot (because I’m hooked!) !
