Hello September! We are finally back from our summer adventures and more than eager to share them with all of you. Our first stop in the road was Sintra, a charming (and very popular) village next to Lisboa. This trip was a first of a couple things: the first time visiting our neighbors’ country Portugal (I know….we don’t have any possible excuse for this…) and the first time travelling abroad with a kiddo, my nephew.
Here you can see a preview via our phones snapshots – some available in our Instagram, thanks to all following & commenting!; I sometimes like to think of them as a making off, although I have to admit that there’s always a couple of them that become my favorite from all the bunch of pictures. Have you ever travelled taking only pictures with your phones? I don’t think we are still prepared for this experience.
Sintra gave us colorful buildings, huge gardens and pretty tiles everywhere. Also lot of people, but I will come later on the following posts with that. Samuel, my nephew, was quite a challenge for us that are not (at all) used to little ones schedules & travelling with kids pros (fun!) and cons (they get tired easily & not that interested in architecture & art). Also since we were travelling with my aunt (his granny) and my mom, we were in charge of settling games that were going to distract him from all the miles to be walked to get up and down from the castles & palaces.
Have you ever been to Sintra before? Hope you liked our funny little preview! Oh! And don’t forget to tell us what you have been up to during this two last weeks, we are excited to catch up with all of your adventures!
