Day 2 Post 1
Day #2, and my first positive message of this day is that I am thankful to have woken up. True, I woke up before 5 a.m. on a Sunday, and I would have really preferred to sleep until closer to 8, but wake up I did, happy, healthy, and knowing that I will see another day with my family. As I sit by the window in my office (house is stifling hot, and that’s the only place with a breeze and ceiling fan) typing this status, the birds are singing up a storm outside and I listen to the sound of the wind blowing through the leaves of the trees. Honestly folks, can it really get any better than this? I think not. Except, maybe if it were 8 a.m. and it was Saturday instead of Sunday. LOL!
Traveling to Lisbon, Portugal? Don’t forget to stop by the Docas, Docks in English, for some fun and entertainment. It is an area of former warehouses overlooking a yachting marina below the 25 de Abril Bridge that has been metamorphosed into fashionable bars, restaurants, and clubs for all tastes and likes.
Just an FYI, we love to eat late. We start the night with long dinners and bar-hopping because that’s just how we roll and only hit the clubs, live band, fados clubs, until after 1:00 AM when crazy begins. The price of admissions is usually between 10 to 20 euros but in some clubs, you just have to pay for your consumption.
25 de Abril Bridge
Call out the morning light, embrace the singing colors on the horizon, the sweet taste of blackberries. Listen to the song of the crickets on the hills, and dance to the sound of the wind blowing. Yes, summer is in full swing after all. Let the tired and sweaty nights caress the innocence of the children frolicking in the night while smiling at the moon and enjoy the ride.
And that’s how we roll. Summer in Lisbon, Portugal. Love the concept of sitting on the stairs while dining.
