Lisbon & Sintra, Portugal

So the second place we stayed on our trip was Portugal! We stayed with some friends and they showed us around Lisbon, took us to some great places to eat, including pastéis de nata at Pastéis de Belém, went shopping, which is cheaper there btw! We got some nice clothes for cheap there (especially at Zara), it was so nice! It was also cool seeing that Lisbon has a Golden Gate Bridge just like ours here in San Francisco! I also loved seeing the tower in the water, along with all the other monuments in Lisbon and the Palace of Queluz.. and the architecture is so cool! I love the colorful houses scattered throughout the city :)

Speaking of amazing architecture, Sintra was absolutely gorgeous!!! There were even more beautiful houses there, along with the cute little tourist town where all the food and shops were; and the castles are just insanely awesome! We went to four of them, including Pena Palace, Castle of the Moors, Sintra National Palace, and Quinta da Regaleira, but the Pena Palace was my fave! It seriously looks straight out of a fairytale! We also had some amazing food there, including pastries at Piriquita, and a delicious puff pastry with goat cheese and ham inside at a local restaurant!

There were a few places I still would have loved to visit in Portugal, but we had a great time!
