Early October 2017 in Lisboa, capital of Portugal, brought quite high and unexpected temperatures of 34° Celsius, so we deserved really some coolness then which we found at diverse tremendous places of the town. This small photographic overview is not at all comprehensive as we have just been around 3 days in town, you better calculate more time for this truly fascinating town on a possible future trip.

I like travelling through the diverse realities and cultures of this world not only as a tourist. Nature, history of ancient sites or creative works are fascinating me however also abandoned places or ordinary things can be just magical and amazing. The multiple aspects and rich diversity of our blue planet need to be however nourished and protected.

      1. Very true. Prazer = Placer, etc. And Spanish and Portuguese only separated recently as languages. 15th century I think. But it’s a good example of how a language evolves with geography. Same goes with Dutch and German. Portuguese is a favourite language of mine. Até logo.

  1. It was a real pleasant journey (afterwards 1 week Algarve in the South-West), now I think it is more rainy but the dry somehow semi-desertic looking interior country – which we have seen when travelling from Lisboa to the Lagos region – really deserves some more water. I have also learned meanwhile that in the ranking of safe countries world-wide Portugal holds the 3rd rank.
