I have been neglecting this blog and feel terrible about it 😦
The truth is that at first I was consumed by my upcoming trip to Lisbon. There was a lot of anxiety in the preparations, so many things I wanted to do, places to visit, people to see… A part of me was also very apprehensive as I had never been away for so long and I was worried what I would find…
While there, time just flew! I did not manage to do all the things I wanted, visit all the places I had planned or see everyone… I never do! It was awesome to be back but I must confess that I did not feel like I was home, not really…. I mean, Lisbon will always be HOME in my heart, and it will always be MY city, however I cannot imagine being there permanently and living there again. My routines, my house, and work are elsewhere and that makes me a foreigner, watching the city´s commotion from afar.
When I came back, it took me about 2 weeks to get over the jetlag and sometime to process all the thoughts, emotions, and experiences lived in those short 3 weeks…
Here are some pictures of my beautiful Lisbon 🙂
It is wonderful to be able to see my city through the eyes of a tourist, in a way that I was never able to see it when I lived there!
It is wonderful to be able to feel at home in different places!
It is amazing to have the opportunity to have lived, and live, abroad!
