after our trip to france we hopped on a plane to portugal where my brother, sister-in-law & nephew were meeting us. portugal is such a bright, colorful, beautiful country. i loved the time that we spent there. the people are so kind & welcoming & all of the buildings are so bright & fun. the country seems so vibrant!
i've heard a lot of people compare lisbon with san francisco, which i think is a pretty fair comparison. it has a lot of really steep hills like s.f., it's on the water, it has it's very own golden gate bridge that was build by the same company (it's just a little smaller), & fun fact- the trolley cars in s.f. come from lisbon! so there are quite a few similarities! lisbon does have trolley cars as well, but they aren't throughout the whole city just in the older parts & are mostly just tourist attractions these days.
