Throwback Thursday: Lisbon

This time, three years ago, I was in Lisbon. Time to remember. There are still many undeveloped images on my disk. I have an enormous backlog ūüė¶

Carnival is a huge event in our region. I guess, I mentioned this fact several times here in my blog. With a few friends, I flee these days as often as possible. Most times, we head to the warmer south.

Take care!
