Lisbon: A City Of Discoveries

 This year, we travelled to Portugal. Our first stop was Lisbon which we learnt is a city of discoveries. It turned out that there are so many to see and learn around Lisbon.  The views from above as our airplane, TAP Portugal, the national carrier was about to land were spectacular  that truly impressed us. So breathtaking, a sign that our expectations will be exceeded and that we will have many more to discover in this country. As you know, Portugal was a country that started the expeditions beyond Europe to discover India, Asia and North America. Now, it is time for us to discover Portugal.
