solo travel: Oh Happy Day in LISBON

After days of moving around with gray overcast skies,

I finally have deep blue tones over my head on my last day in Lisbon.

Lisbon truly is a visual treat.

I enjoy looking at the bright colored buildings and the textures of chipped paint walls, the tile and mosaic patterns on the buildings and on the floor…

Everything just looks so much more alive now and this trip is making me feel that as well!

I’m just smiling my labas-gilagid smile the whole time.

People I’ve met here tells me how light and radiant I am.


I guess people can feel your energy and sense your vibe.

“If you want to change the world, first try to improve and bring about change within yourself.”
The message for a fellow traveler and he says it’s very appropriate 😉

Happiness is a choice and I choose to be radiantly happy 😀

I believe that when you are happy, you are free.

And nothing makes me more happy than a good nest /a place to rest. In Lisbon, upon my friends’ recommendation, I stayed at ROSSIO HOSTEL. This is actually the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in during my whole European adventure. Good location, delicious free breakfast (choco hazelnut crepe, eggs and toast, cooked daily for us!), clean rooms (I stayed in a 4-person mixed dorm) and clean bathrooms (separate bathrooms for men & women, I later on realized how important this was) – a true value for money!

When you are happy, and they know it, clap your hands.

Clap! Clap! Clap!
