Lisbon in Pictures

Back in 2014 I was sitting in a coffee shop studying for midterms and complaining about the Canadian winter. I had just come across photos of Dubrovnik on Pinterest  and was telling my friends how much I wanted to go there. Turns out they were also feeling the winter blues and a couple of google searches later ( and after writing off flights to Croatia as too expensive at that time) we settled on Lisbon (or Lisbon) Portugal. In a week we had booked flight tickets, found a hostel and starting planning our adventure!
Choosing Lisbon ended up being one of the BEST decisions ever! Flights were cheap in European standards, our hostel was dirt cheap ( $13 a night for a private triple, free breakfast/wifi and on a metro stop) but most importantly it was absolutely beautiful! I have already shared my itinerary and plan here but I also thought I would share more pictures from this trip!
