Solo travel: LISBON, Portugal (part 3)

I’ve realized that it is best to savor moments than to hurry off to the next scene.

It is better to take care of connections than to hop on to the next contact.

Random actions can lead to new experiences.

Coincidences can turn into interesting scenarios.

I should have been on the bus to Coimbra but I opted to meet up with some people I met yesterday and check out the exhibit by Joana Vasconcellos. Instead of heading back to the hostel soon after, I opted to stay with them, ate egg tarts and had a stimulating conversation in English, Polish & French.

Instead of going down my bus stop, I went down near the port to walk one last time on the streets of Lisbon. Instead of speeding up to the train station, I opted to eat a late lunch of bacalao at the same resto where I first dined.

It’s actually 3 in the afternoon and I should have left at 10 this morning yet I am still here.

Coimbra can wait…

I’ve realized that if you open yourself up to the world,

it will surprise you.
