Lisbon - Weeks 22 & 23

[30/01/2013] - Vacation! This fortnight was full of eating out, travels, and shopping.

[27/01/2013] Two of my batch mates were in Lisbon during this week, and it was really nice to have some Sri Lankans around, after a long time, and discuss some good old memories!

[23/01/2013] - We paid a visit to Leiria-Fátima, by Rede Express bus service, which starts from Sete-Rios (Metro Station - Jardim Zoologico). Fatima is a religious place for Catholics, with the church of Our Lady of Fatima.

Seagulls in Parque das Nações
 One month of 2013 is going to finish.. :-o 2013 is surely becoming the most eventful year ever. Successful exams, followed by a vacation, of which two weeks have already gone, like a beautiful dream - with joyful, interesting, exciting, as well as sad moments. I guess, I love Lisboa (and its food, drinks, the shades of the mild winter evenings it has to offer, and the lovely people..).. ♥

Feeding seagulls in Parque das Nações (Parque Expo), watching movies, metro journeys, travel by tram no.28, and trying different restaurants by Parque Expo were remarkable. I will surely miss my friends, when they start returning to their countries, finishing their studies in Lisbon.

A colourful new year

2013 just started with colours and style, as an energetic year. 2012 was the most successful as well as an important year for me. I expect 2013 to be more interesting. Very happy new year everyone.

The count down for new year and the fireworks at Praca do Comercio was nice. Now time to get back to studies, for the upcoming exams next week.. :)
