A Piece of Me In... Lisbon, Portugal #4

We have come to the fourth and final photo diary of my time in Lisbon :( Going through the pictures and making these posts have made me miss Portugal so much... I really do hope that I get another chance to go there. After, the previous post you will be happy to know that there will not be as many pictures in this one lol. We went out late on the Saturday night and didn't get in until around 10am (yes, 10 in the morning!) on Sunday so we just spent the whole day sleeping :P For my last night we went out for dinner at an Italian restaurant called Da Vinci then drinks in Bairro Alto. What I loved about Bairro Alto is that everyone was so friendly (sometimes a bit too friendly...) I got to meet a  lot of different people, from different countries some who were also on holiday and others who were residents.
Just before we headed out... My friend has her own blog where she will be documenting her time in Lisbon, so if you're interested here is the link http://chantemarie.wordpress.com/; show her some love!

Messing around, I was meant to be pointing at the church :/
The lovely waiters at the resturant decided to jump in for a photo op :P
My friend's spaghetti bolognese and my lasagne (I loooooove lasagne!)
I hope you've enjoyed these photo diaries, and hopefully I will be able to share more travelling experiences with you in the future xo

A Piece of Me In... Lisbon, Portugal #3

This next post will show the pictures I took when in Baixa-Chiado, or Downtown Lisbon, which is described as the heart of the city. To get there we took a tram, my first ever tram ride! We also took a stroll through Bairro Alto, which is quite quiet during the day however is transformed at night into the city's vibrant nightlife. We had lunch in Nicola Cafe in Rossio Square which faces the National Theatre and St. George's Castle. There is something about the buildings in Lisbon that I find so beautiful, so there are A LOT of pictures of buildings in this post... Actually, there's just a lot of pictures full stop :)
Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição Velha
I arrived in Lisbon at the beginning of Lisbon Week, which was a week of celebrating the art, history etc of Lisbon, with concerts and lectures in unexpected places.
Camões Square (Praça Luís de Camões)
Top - H&M // Skirt - Topshop (also seen here) // Bag - my friend's
Was not ready for this one... I kinda like it though
Comercio Square (Praça do Comercio) & Figueira Square (Praça da Figueira)
In the distance is the Monument to Christ (Cristo-Rei), which was built in 1959 in thanks to God for having spared Portugal in the Second World War.
My lunch was grilled cod with Portuguese potatoes
Dulce de Leche cheesecake... I love me some cheesecake :)

A Piece of Me In... Lisbon, Portugal #2

Today I'm going to share with you pictures I took when my friend and I went to the beach in Costa da Caparica. Apparently, I've been to the beach when I was younger but because I can't remember it I'm going to say that this was my first time going to a sand beach :) Everything was so beautiful and the weather was gorgeous. It was a really chilled day filled with a nice walk, sunbathing and a few splashes in the sea.
Sunglasses, Maxi dress and Shopper bag, all H&M
Bikini // H&M
Me and a giant pineapple :P
