Lisbon....

The sky really was that blue.
For four days.
Walking.
Wonderful views.
Lemon tarts and cherry brandy.
Trams.
Tuk-tuks.
Beaches.
Best meal ever in a small Russian restaurant.
A 40% proof vodka...chilled glass.
Smallest glove shop ever seen.
Fado.
Sculpture.
Cheap taxis.

Suitcase unpacked and passport put away...just for 3 weeks though...when they will be needed again.
So far I'm liking the 'travel instead of a party' plan..very much indeed.

That's told me all I need to know! Funnily enough I was talking to my hairdresser yesterday about Lisbon - he's just returned and had a fabulous time.
Another one for my empty nester travel itinerary!

You make Lisbon sound very attractive; I could probably drive there in a day!

Travelling is good. Fresh perspectives and a true escape from working life.

Happy Celebratory Travels to You, Missus. Have you applied for your Senior Railcard yet? Remember you get 25% off at Specsavers too! Some restaurants give you a 'Senior Citizens' menu with a huge discount but it only seems to contain foods you have to suck for some obscure reason!!! Great 'seeing' you, Libs. x

When did you become so minimalist with regard to the use of language Libby? Before long you'll be writing:-
"Went to Leicester. Came home. The End." OR "WTL.CH.TE"
