A Wednesday look at Me on Monday

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!

sounds fabulous and look forward to seeing more or your trip - but I am wondering why a shop window had lots of gold half spheres?

Splendid photo! Even on holiday, you're a scrapper through and through :). Delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your break - it sounds glorious.

Oh wow! How very lovely it all sounds. Yes: that's probably the best Me On Monday picture I've ever seen. I'm so glad you got the chance for a sunshiney break before term really gets going and I can't wait to hear more

I'm a bit late in posting, but am glad you had a marvellous time in Lisbon. I shall put it on my list of places to visit.

Sounds wonderful - never been to Lisbon so I'm looking forward to finding the post about it. What a neat looking picture!
