Its been more than a year since my trip to Europe and I am still in disbelief at how I managed to escape for those 2 months. And... I realized that I have yet to blog much about the trip!
The sister and I booked Trafalgar tours to Spain and Portugal - which was amazing and I strongly recommend this as our Trafalgar tour guide was beyond exceptional and offered us great insights about the country.
If I had to pick a place to revisit again, it would be Lisbon in Portugal. Just like any other European country, you need to be wary of your surroundings as petty thefts are common and is such a massive trip spoiler. Travel light and where possible, ensure that your bag is right in front of you and secured!
Slightly warm, creamy, sweet and crisp best describes this tart - it is hard to stop at one.
Nestled around the National Palace were tiny streets with cafes which did not fail at luring customers in. The streets can be narrow especially during peak tourist hours. Our local expert recommended us to grab a "pillow" biscuit which is a traditional pastry in Sintra. Sprinkled with a good dose of sugar, the layers were definitely fluffy and akin a sleeping pillow.
