Lens-Artists Challenge #53 – Imagination with Friends in Lisboa

Congrats to the Lens-Artists Challenge for a great first year!  I’ve been participating since last November and have really enjoyed it.  We have a special topic this week in honor of the anniversary, bloggers’ choice.  See below to check out what the founders of the challenge picked.


I tried to incorporate all their themes in my collection of photos.  During university, I studied abroad in Spain for a semester with a group of about a dozen others.  There were eight of us girls that often took weekend trips, including one to the beautiful capital of Portugal, Lisboa.

I wonder what she is imagining?

We were able to see several parts of the city, including Belém and the Park of Nations area that was created for the ’98 World Expo.

The Expo theme was The Oceans

There was so much beautiful architecture, great food, and wonderful outdoor spaces in the city.  Though we went not knowing a word of Portuguese, we managed to muddle through with a mix of English and Spanish.  We found the people to be very friendly, speaking of making connections. 😀


I would love to travel to Lisboa again someday!  I also haven’t seen these friends in many years now, so it was wonderful to look back at these happy memories.  Here’s to another year of great photos!

    Thank you for the beautiful tour, Mei Mei! Travel with friends is fun. I haven’t visited Lisbon. Maybe in the near future. 🙂

    Thank you, Mei-Mei for letting us see a part of memorable Lisbon – a beautiful city! A very nice choice – traveling with study mates and getting to know new places. Hopefully you will be able to return some day. Thank you for lovely support!
