Lisbon was a surprise. I didn't know what to expect, as was the majority of my EU trip. But Lisbon, well to say it outdid my expectations was an understatement. I fell hard for it. The food, the wine, the COLORS, the old world charm of the cobblestones and beautiful little apartments set up on the hills-- it all just took my breath away. Not to mention the beach was a mere 25 minutes away-- well it was the perfect destination to end our three week trip and my new favorite place on earth.
