Lisbon: Trip with my Portu-gal (Part 2)

I spent several weeks prior to our trip foraging information about attractions in Lisbon, from natural to manmade, and from charged to completely free.

Leamington – s to Do!

Sometimes the nicest places are only on your door step! An impromptu Sunday trip to Leamington Spa shaped up to be the loveliest afternoon.
