Portugal: Beaches and Belem

Enjoying the summer sun in Lisbon 
should always include pistachio ice cream from Santini near the beaches at Cascais...

The custard tarts in Belem are a 'must-eat' kinda thing when visiting Lisbon,
but I can't say this was my favorite snack since I'm not a big fan of custard.
However, I did have a nice time people watching in the old cafe where they were served.

Looking back, there were moments where this felt like a bit of a long trek
for a somewhat disappointing snack but, but oh well.
As they say, you can't win 'em all, especially whilst traveling!

For cheep, scenic transport (from Lisbon to Belem) just take the tram.

I wandered through after the custard tart tasting. Aside from others taking a summer stroll, there was an amateur gymnastics festival going on...although it was not nearly as photographic as these pretty trees, which I relaxed under for a while before heading back to Lisbon.

All in all, it was a lovely day!
