Lisbon: An Unexpected Love

Portugal, Portugal, Portugal. Oh how I've come to love ya.

I went to Lisbon, Portugal, on another organized trip with my study abroad organization, and boy, I did not know what was coming for me. My professor warned us: you will love Lisbon. It's one of his favorite cities in Europe and he assured us that it would one of ours too.

I knew nothing in advance, and as I've said before, that is sometimes the best way to go.

My perspective of this city was constantly changing during the small amount of time I spent here. At first, it seems like just another large European city, but I soon found that it was not like any I had been to before. I loved the history, the architecture, and the small little pieces that brought joy and color to my trip. The food was incredible (one of the highlights for sure). I loved Lisbon so much and can't wait to return soon!
