I'm giving a very belated wave to Sian with apologies for being so late to the Me on Monday party.
I do have a very good excuse though,I was in Lisbon! We were actually flying back to the UK on Monday and while we were having a last stroll through the town, I saw this shop window display which was full of convex golden domes so quickly snapped our reflections for my Me on Monday photo.
As you can probably guess it was a rather busy weekend! We flew out early on Saturday morning and returned home Monday evening. What a lovely city and a fantastic opportunity to grab some late summer sunshine. We travelled on all manner of transport: metro, open topped bus and tram, not to mention walking for miles, and loved every minute.
When you know that you are only in a place for a short while you obviously need to plan what you want to do and where you want to go before you get there and my husband had spent many a happy hour checking guide books and maps before we left so that when we arrived at the hotel we could drop our bags and start exploring. I think it's fair to say that if a sight was worth seeing, we saw it! We used the hop-on-hop-off bus one day and it was such a brilliant way of seeing everything. I won't go into too many details now, but will save that for another post when I try to convince you all that you need to visit Lisbon one day!
So here I am, Me on Wednesday - trying to get back in the normal routine and wishing it had been a week in Lisbon rather than just a weekend!
