Mainland Portugal: Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais, and more

It’s quite a contrast to come from the Azores to Lisbon. From the serenity of nature and waterfront views everywhere you look and the charm of island life, where even in the city there’s less congestion and people move at a slower pace, and straight into the hustle and bustle of Portugal’s capital.

June 14: I’m on my way home. Exhausted - mentally and physically - with achy shoulders from heaving my backpack around cities for days and navigating so much newness.
