Travel Diary: Lisbon, May 2011

Lisbon is one of those cities that seems to be enveloped in a never-ending heat. The asphalt is literally steaming beneath my feet, and it’s only May. I’m so glad I’ve never been here in August.

Besides the killer heat, Lisbon is an incredibly beautiful city. The colorful architecture and uniquely lively local lifestyle make it a surprisingly energizing experience. All the people around me seem happy. And loud.

I push through the loud crowds, wandering around the sights and sounds of the city, trying to take it all in.

I wonder what I’ll remember the most from this day, looking back years later.
