Sintra

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, on day 2 (or actually more day 3, but the first day was only a few hours long so..) we took a 40-minute train to Sintra! It’s a small village nearby Lisbon and it’s famous for it’s fairy tale-like castle :) We all know how much I love fairy tales so I obviously HAD to go there ;) After the long train ride we decided to walk (!!) up the hill to the castle. Well, never again! Not only was it HOT (at least 25-30 degrees Celsius and I can’t stand heat. I’m never cold, always hot, so I’m literally melting as soon as it’s hotter than 15 degrees ;)) it was very steep and long. It took us longer than an hour to get there, I thought I was going to die! Note to self: pick up running again. But it was all worth it, because it was a beautiful castle (although I didn’t really care for the interior). And the view was amazing as well! Definitely a ‘must-see’ when one is in Lisbon!

Here are, as usual, a thousand pictures ;) I still have so many pictures left that I want to share, geesh. Please bear with me!

    Hey! Sintra is the most romantic place here in Portugal. Quinta de Regaleira is a trippy experience, sort of Alice in Wonderland thing!
    I loved these photos^^
