Belem, Portugal

Our second day in Lisbon we decided to head to the town of Belem. There was a lot of history in this little town, and even the place of resistance for the Portuguese President.  We walked around the town, and looked at all of the historical monuments that were set out on the water.  TheContinue reading “Belem, Portugal”

There are these beautiful purple trees that I have become obsessedContinue reading “Sydney”

Don’t stop believing

There are so many pretty parts about Australia so far, and one of my favourite’s is the cool rock formations. They look like pieces of toffee, and are so fascinating to look at. We even saw some people sitting in them reading. Definitely a perfect spot to sit…read a book…tan…and watch the surfers! We foundContinue reading “Don’t stop believing”
