A collaboration post about the world’s new modern architecture! I invited some of my fellow travel bloggers to share their experience all over the world. I will kick off with the National Museum of Qatar.
“Aqui, onde a terra se acaba e o mar começa…” Sometimes an ending of a wonderful thing could be heart wrenching, but at the same time, it could be a new beginning of something wonderful.
My third encounter in Lisbon, Portugal, was not exactly with a particular person, but the party goers and diners in the old town center of Lisbon on a Friday night; and then we visited the Pastéis de Belém and explored the surrounding areas.
The second encounter that I had in Lisbon was rather musical. A live performance at the historic São Jorge Castle… Every note from each strumming was bouncing on the stone wall and echoing in the courtyard.
Never had I thought my trip to Lisbon would become so many memorable encounters with people. My first encounter was, however, not so pleasant, it was with a pickpocket on the infamous tram#28.
Unlike many Europe cities, Porto is hilly. Although it doesn’t has a spectacular harbor view from the peak like Hong Kong, it has a double-deck iron bridges that spans the Duoro River. Standing on the hundred-year-old Dom Luis I bridge I could view seagulls soaring freely over the body of water, and layers and layers of houses making a concerted effort to Porto’s spectacular skyline.
