a few pictures from our trip to lisbon

lisbon-staycation-1

julia and i travelled to lisbon last december – it always takes us some time adjusting to the different routines, and we have so many family and friends to see and make up for lost time, ‘we’ figured we would take it easy and just enjoy a staycation in lisbon for the holidays.

i always have a big list of errands and new spots i want to go to, but this time i tried not to be a ‘prisoner’ of my list and took it a day at a time, instead. we spent a lot of time at home, having long breakfasts with the family, visiting my grandmother and the occasional escape for some me time with friends.

here are a few pictures of our trip if you’d like to see –

a quick hello from lisbon

a-quick-hello-from-lisbonif you follow me on instagram, you know i’m in lisbon right now. it’s our parents’ 40th wedding anniversary so we secretly flew over and, at 7am, we rang the bell at their house ! needless to say, they were overly surprised, and julia and i super excited to be here and spend this date with them. we’ll be taking it easy here, with lot’s of christmas get togethers, family time and catching up with old friends.

happy-new-year-2014

and happy kings’ day! hope you had a wonderful holiday season. after christmas in turks & caicos, julia and i flew home to portugal, just in time for new years eve, and spent it by the fireplace, with our family, and pretty stoked about my sister‘s engagement news – what a great start of the year for our family!

i’ve been having a very cold, but amazing week in lisbon, catching up with friends and spending time with loved ones. julia and i will be here for a couple of more weeks. it took her a while to get used to wearing clothes and shoes! i think it’ll take her a little longer to walk, since she’s used to having a lot more freedom moving around. she’s loving all the attention…gets clapped pretty much all the time, and that makes her day!
