A kind old man insisted I take his seat on the busπŸ˜…πŸ˜… such a gentleman but I do think he needs the seat much more than I do!

Cheers to fresh and cheap orange juice here in Belem on a sunny day!
Part 2 of Belem Tower!
Part 1 of Belem Tower, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site! It was supposed to be a defence tower but it became a prison/magazine/etc and now a tourist attraction haha.
Walking from one attraction to the next!
The monument of discoveries!
Welcome to Belem, one of the many districts in Lisbon😊
We started the day with portugese tarts from Pasteis de Belem!!! Which was where the tarts originated from. THIS IS MY FAR THE BEST EGG TARTS IN MY LIFE. I had like 4 egg tarts with chocolate milk it was awesomeπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ the crust is special and crispy, the filling is warm and not too sweet and texture just right. One mouth sends you straight to heavnπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Our last maggie of the entire trip😭😭😭
This is a traditional snack, which is fried codfish with mash potatoes! We ordered one with cheese and one without. The one with cheese was disappointing because it wasn't runny😭
This place has by far the best pastry crust!!! Also the best pastry we had out of the five places we triedπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Of course we had to explore Baixa district, just footsteps outside our house. Went to Rossio square, Rossio train station, Augusta pedestrain area (shopping), Santa Justa Lift (we didn't go up to see the vantage view).
So when you had too much custard pastry...you gotta drink something. So we each got a fruit smoothie from Macs which were ALL GOOD. Peach/Passionfruit + Mango/Pineapple (Mine) + Strawberry/Banana πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
This one is a mini pop-into-your-mouth pastry. It has a light ginger taste which was quite good!
This one tasted so-so, the pastry was not as nice as the previous one! Deli and Candice also shared a fried codfish burger which was not bad!
Our second custard pastry! (The first one was at the airport, it was too sweet for my liking) This is the second best custard pastry we had😊 I think it has a tinge of cinnamon flavour.
Checked into our accomm at Lisbon, just at the Baixa district! We have Michael Kors and co. just right outside our doorstepπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
