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 –
december went by too fast, actually the whole year did, time seems to fly when you’re a mum!! we finally got our boxes from turks & caicos, but these arrived a few days before flying to lisbon for our christmas vacation, so i just let them be…real proof that we don’t actually need as much stuff as we think we do.
our vacations in lisbon always evolve around family get togethers, eating as much delicious food as we can and trying to meet up with old friends. i love seeing julia spending time with the family and playing with my friends’ kids, and it breaks my heart that this can’t be part of our daily life. but every time we visit, it’s really special, and we’ll treasure these moments forever.
