Miss Haberdash Lisbon ....

Lovely Lisboa, winding streets, jacaranda trees and lots and lots of tiles (best seen at the Museu National do Azulejo). Decorative patterns in all colours cover the pavements and the building facades, I was in heaven.

You can't miss Sintra (where I took these photos) just a short train ride from the centre of Lisbon, the National Palace is stunning.

The Alfama is the oldest part of the city and hosts a famous flea market, Feira de Ladra.
