The White City

We've had so much going on for the past few months, and I'm still working on several things... sorry for the jumping topics.

I'm trying to write about things while they are still recent and fresh, although I also want to finish this Around the World recap - like pronto. For some reason taking tons of photos while we were traveling seemed like a good idea, but I didn't account for looking through them all to find my favorites.

We also seem to be adding to more to that. Soon we'll be heading to Lisbon - 'The White City'.

Food seems to be a hot topic there. I'm also looking forward to the Moorish architecture and beautiful tile work. It will be interesting to see how it compares to Macau, which was a Portuguese colony. I'm working on writing about that right now, so it will still be fresh in my mind.

I've checked out Jamie Oliver's travel guide - does anyone have any more tips or recommendations?

How exciting! Another exciting trip! Joern went there a few years ago, and absolutely loved it. He said that the tower, built by Gustav Eiffel's apprentice, was really cool. Joern also recommends the cafe with tin soldiers.
Can't wait to visit another amazing locale through your blog!

Thanks, Allison - and Jörn!

I will check those out... and keep my eyes peeled for the tin soldiers. I'm just hoping the weather holds out - it's supposed to be rainy through November, although we've had luck so far.
