A Happy, Healthy Holiday!

Hello! It’s me – I’m back! *Waving madly at you.*

I’ve had a fantastic time in Lisbon for the past two weeks, despite the fact it rained practically every day. I’ve got so much to tell you, I don’t know where to start.

Well, actually I do, because the best news of all is that I’ve been feeling so much better and, bar one day (the day after going to see Michael Bublé in concert – more about that another time), I was able to go out sightseeing for a few hours every single day. Yippee! 😀

I visited forts, museums, art galleries, castles, palaces, the historical parts of the city and even the beaches (in the rain). I don’t think words will do justice to how beautiful a city Lisbon is and what a brilliant time I’ve had exploring it, so let me take you on a photo tour. 😉

The stunning district of Alfama – the oldest district in Lisbon. Imagine what this must look like on a clear, sunny day!

And last but not least, this is the view from the apartment I stayed in.

So many reasons to feel glad/happy/joyful!

And if it wasn’t for The Pollyanna Plan, I’d have never recovered enough to be able to go and to really enjoy myself. This was my first proper holiday for 9 looong years and I loved every minute of it. 🙂
