May Holiday – Lisbon, Portugal
Good fresh food, inexpensive. The maritime museum is pretty interesting, given Portugal’s position in history regarding maritime trade and exploration. Belém Tower wasn’t so interesting – you climb some stairs and look out over the bay, and there was a dearth of information about the role the tower played in history. Monserrate Palace, on the other hand, was quite interesting for us, and had some beautiful gardens; we avoided the crowds visiting Sintra by coming here, and it was well worth it.
