A walk and dinner over sunset and moonrise at the Ponte Abril de 25 and doca de Santa Amaro in late August. We walked for (pointless) miles to get here because we missed the one crossing point across the highway, and someone advised us to keep going instead of turning back.
We walked along the Avenida da India until we could get to the riverside by a footbridge, and finally doubled back. I loved how the esplanade was bustling with joggers, bikers, and walkers. Under the bridge, by the marina, is a public sports facility with squash and raquetball (maybe even tennis). Such a cool use of space.
We had a lovely, slightly pricey dinner seated outdoors as we watched the big, bright rakhi moon come up. Then we took the extremely short way back back to the main road and took the tram back to our hotel.

Vasco da Gama, traveller and seafarer, merchant and statesman. Goa owes him.

And that, ladies, gentlemen, and others, is the tomb of Vasco da Gama, traveller and seafarer, merchant and statesman. Goa owes him.

Me! At the edge of the Targus river at the praca do comercio, Lisboa. My aunt took this – while trying to avoid this random woman with a satchel who kept photo bombing us. I really wish I had had the nerve (and bad manners) to pop in front of her lens as she wandered around (seemingly) oblivious. But, game face on! We got a photo with a seagull. #travel #portugal #fall2015
Bizarre rickshaw Batmobile with crow beak and human legs…spotted behind the Museu de Arte Popular in Lisboa.
Quite … fetching, don’t you think?
Sadly we were too tired and in pain (aunt’s knee, my shoe blisters) and hungry to go in. So that’s saved for my next trip to #Portugal.

Day trip to Coimbra, with the family. We split up into the amblers who wanted to street shop, and my cousin and I walked across the Ponte Santa Clara across the Mondego river and then back across the pretty Ponte Pedonal de Pedro e Inês footbridge. And then we found the ambling family, the street of cats (meow), and Queque Ingles (fruit cake). Yay!

One of many magical evenings. Happy Hour started under the trellised ivy at 6pm almost every night, and I climbed up on the roof to get the sunset, moonrise, and view below.
