Campervan Adventures in Spain & Portugal: Lisbon

Today we walked all over Lisbon! Up and down all the hills!

We started from camp and walked through the park to Panorâmico de Monsanto - a graffitied old high-end restaurant with views of the city


















It was a lot of fun to wander around


Then off to the city!







First stop - vegan nata! So good!



Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara





Lots of restaurants had outdoor seating on the stairs





We decided to get lunch out as well at Organi Chiado - we got there just in time to get a table that was off to the side by itself, not right next to everyone else! Win

And we had a Caprese salad which was so tasty and fresh

Spirit tofu (tofu salad) with salad, sweet potatoes and green rice that was so so good!

And penne with tomato cashew sauce and pesto - also really good



After lunch we headed down to the water

And found a craft market










Of course we had to get some gelato - I tried the pistachio which apparently was what this place was known for...and it was just okay. It was odd texture like you had to chew it. 

Then off to get some empanadas to take back to camp for dinner. The empanada place was right on this super steep street with a funicular!


While waiting we saw lots of them go up and down





We were going to do a giant loop and walk back to camp, but it was so hot by then that we decided to call a taxi instead. 

The empanadas from Empanar we had for dinner were just meh. There was quinoa portobello & cheese which I did not like at all. Roasted veggie and cheese which was meh at best. Corn and cheese which was surprisingly better. And roasted veggie which was the only really good one. 

Overall a great day, we both really enjoyed Lisbon way more than we expected. Lots of walking, lots of hills, lots of fun!

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
