Lisbon City Guide + Video!

Portugal is probably one of the most underrated countries in Western Europe. You don't hear too many people enthusiastically proclaim that they're going to Portugal. Unless that person is me. I've been dreaming of going to Portugal since last winter. I can't really say where the idea to spend a month in this country came from, but when I told people I was saving to go to Portugal, I was responded with "why Portugal?" My response: why not Portugal?!

My trip started in Lisbon, which greeted me with unique architecture (all.the.tile), delicious food (read: pastries), and beautiful scenic points that seem to take you all over the world. Have you always dreamed of seeing Christ the Redeemer in Rio? Lisbon has its twin named Christo Rei. Golden Gate Bridge more your fancy? Try the 25 de Abril Bridge.
