Lisbon

The last place we visited on the cruise was Lisbon/Lisboa, Portugal.  This was my first time in Portugal my family have never seem interested in Portugal before - however we were all wrong.  Portugal was gorgeous!  I'd love to go there again someday.  The people were so polite and the city was so beautiful.  

Lisbon, Portugal’s hilly capital, is a coastal city known for its cafe culture and soulful Fado music. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles. And just outside Lisbon is a string of Atlantic beaches, from Cascais to Estoril.



This is an art Gallery - doesn't look like it at first sight does it.  It was so big and modern.  


Monument to the Discoveries 




Andy Warhol pieces 








Pasties de Belem - a famous cafe in Lisbon.  The name is after the pasties taken in the picture below.  


They're kind of reminded me of Vol au Vents - a custard filled warm Vol au Vent.   Soooo tasty hehe. 






Train around the old town.


Lisbon or San Francisco and Rio??? hahaha.



Lisbon really surprised me, i'd definitely visit again and hopefully one day I shall. 

Thanks for reading

Provence

Bonjour, ce va? 

Today I am going to be talking about Provence, France.  I loved it here, the little towns we visited were so pretty and calm.  It just made me want to be a french artist or baker who has their own shops and is just so chic haha wishful thinking ey.  

Provence is a geographical region and historical province of southeastern France, which extends from the left bank of the lower Rhône River on the west to the Italian border on the east, and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea on the south.


I felt very French in my strips and hat.  If you're wondering my top is from Topshop and I bought my sunhat from a market in Italy.


Twinning :')



This is what I mean, I would so love to live in France and work in this little shop.... let me move there now!!!  plzzz. 



Doesn't in remind you of Beauty and the Beast.  It's like the real life town where they're from. 


Selfie with the castle hashtag standard move. 



I found this pond sooooo beautiful.  I could there and look at it and the fishes for hours.





Selfie stick getting put to good use :') 


où est le chat?







Provence is known for its Lavender fields.  We went to a museum that taught you all about the differences between Lavender and Lavendine... and believe me there is a huge difference between them both hahaha. 





Inside the cute shop were I want to work/own.



Imagine living here (not too sure if it was even a house hehe). 









I definitely want to go back to Provence.  I could see myself staying there for a week.  It's a place I could really imagine going for for a retreat... you know time away for the hustle and bustle of a city and just to chill - watch the world go by.  

Leave me any questions you may have below, and I'll speak to you in my next post. 

Byeeee
