Lisbon is probably one of my favorite cities I've been to in Europe. Someday I would love to go back and see other parts of their country. It was amazing on every level.
We went to a castle the first day, which was pretty cool. Not a lot of history to it. Really, it was more of the "old city" of Lisbon. Very neat, but not the coolest castle I've seen in Europe. However. They had peacocks, which I initially thought were feral cats, because the only thing I could hear was them screaming!
Saturday involved us taking buses, which I am just not a fan of. They were crowded and at one point we even took this trolley, which although an iconic thing to do in Lisbon, was not my definition of "fun". Public transport is a blessing, but at the same time, metros are really the only ones I enjoy using. That day we started out with the Belem Tower, which was much smaller in person then I expected it to be. Took some pictures with the 25 De Abril Bridge The bridge also looked almost exactly like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The pictures don't quite reflect how red this bridge is.
