Going to Lisbon, Portugal

my visit to portugal

I just arrived in Portugal and I can't wait to start exploring this amazing country. The landscapes are lush and green with stone walls dividing the property lines built centuries ago. Portugal is my favourite place in the world because a lot of my family here.

I am staying at the 5-star Intercontinental Lisbon Hotel. The nightly rate at this 5 star hotel is $198 dollars per night. It is located in central Lisbon. I have decided to spend two days and one night at this hotel.

On my first day in this city, I am planning to visit the Lisbon Oceanarium. The oceanarium is a unique and unforgettable place. It includes two buildings - the original oceans and the new building of the sea. The Oceanarium collaborates with several institutions in scientific research projects, conservation of marine biodiversity and to promote sustainable development of the oceans. There are over 8000 marine creatures and 7 million litres of saltwater.

On my second day in Lisbon I am planning to visit the iconic Padrao dos Descobrimentos monument, which is located on the northern bank of the Tagus River. this is a monument to honour maritime explorers.

from there I will visit the Jeronimos Monastery. This monastery was opened in 1601. Explorer Vasco de Gama is buried here.

From the Monastery I will be heading directly to the airport to catch a 2 1/2 hour flight to Paris, France.
