Took the byway number 4 to the Ponte de Vasco do Gama. Crossed the long long bridge into the hustle and bustle of Lisbon. Dropped rental car back to airport. Taxi to hotel. Hotel close to city located adjacent to Plaza do Marquis Pombal. About a 30 min downhill walk along a wide treed avenue into the heart of the city. There are funiculars, lifts …
... Lagos. We arrived and found our new hostel easy. This Hostel was great! Right on the main drag and so lovely inside. All of the hosts were so nice.

Since we only have 1 day to explore as ...
... exploring the amazing castle. I've never seen anything quite like it in all my life. I felt like a little kid. The climb up the stairs freaked me out a bit but it blew my mind. Coolest thing I've seen in a long while and the views from the top were spectacular. Where's our castles in New Zealand? I don't really want to leave Lisbon. It has been an absolute treat. And my fav country I've visited in Europe to date. If only we made it to the beach for a swim. But there is always next ...
