Lisbon Portugal

I had to go to Lisbon for a week of information systems security training. Life is just so rough sometimes. :-) My wife met me afterwards to hang out for the weekend before we both headed back to Stockholm. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend it for a vacation.

We started down at the docas (docks) to eat at one of the nice restaurants. It's near the 25 de Abril Bridge built by the same people that built the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. Lisbon feels a bit like San Francisco built over many hills with trolleys rolling around town.






Barrios Alto was a fun neighborhood of restaurants and bars with a beautiful view of the city. It was rainy, so I managed to catch a rainbow.
















We rode a tour bus out to Belém and dodged some rain along the way.

















We rode the tour bus around various parts of the city.




oops...


























My favorite part of the weekend was the Castelo de São Jorge. This was the first real European castle I've visited.
