I would like to dedicate this post to a few of my favorites! Just some of the many tile-scapes I have passed on my Lisbon tile walk. The tiles are called azulejos - aka polished stone. And they are literally everywhere in Portugal. On walls of churches to palaces, ordinary houses, park seats, fountains, shops, and train stations. Our Airbnb has them on the front facade of the building. And they just make everything look like a whole new world. I’ve never seen so much colorful expression in replication before. It’s mesmerizing to me. I like to think of them as the patterns of our lives. We all go through different phases. When planning for this trip I read this scripture from the book of Titus - In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works. How amazing it can be to see things differently. After all that I’ve been through I am not the same Sarah I once was a few years ago. Or even a year ago. I’m healthy. Happy. Ready for the next life adventure to take hold. The new version of me is a wonderful pattern of goodness and love and might. And I am so glad you all get to see it with me. 🙏🏼❤️🌈 #lisbon#tiles#portugaltiles#travelportugal#portugesearchitecture#lisbonportugal
Porto. Città situata sulla costa nel nord-ovest del Portogallo, da sempre nota per i suoi grandi ponti e la produzione del vino porto, oggi vanta un giovane flusso generazionale da far invidia all'antagonista Lisbona. Nel quartiere medievale di Ribeira (che significa "riva del fiume"), strette stradine caratterizzate da ciottoli conducono alle case dei vecchi mercanti e alla zona più frequentata della città, con locali e ristoranti dove mangiare dell'ottimo pesce a buon prezzo.
