If you missed out on our most recent Solo Travellers trip to Lisbon, do not fear! You can see what we got up to by flicking through our Lisbon Photo Diary. Considering it had been forecast to rain and thunderstorm for the full 4 days, we actually got pretty lucky with the weather and the sun even graced us with its presence most days. We visited lots of amazing places, ate some great food, listened intently to traditional fado music and drank a lot of wine with a lovely group of people.
