It was hard, and easy, to say goodbye to Lisbon. While the city definitely feels vibrant and lively with so many people from all over the world here, if I lived in Lisbon I would flee for quieter shores in August, too. Everything feels crowded and a bit overwhelming. It is amazing, however, what a 30-degree temperature drop can do for a body. The boys have taken an interest in photography, and Kyle’s been giving them some suggestions but mostly letting them try things out.

We visited the Feira da Ladra flea market, where you can buy everything from toothpastes to veritable antiques.

The last two days in Lisbon we spent walking and enjoying some of the many parks and viewpoints.

What has already become apparent is that, whether in the heat or not, traveling with a 10 year-old and a 12 year-old requires a lot of snacks, and a limit on museums. Noted.
