City by the Sea

Lisbon Portugal

There’s a big difference in topography from one part of Lisbon to another. Walking between buildings usually involves walking up or down exterior stairs, but along the path, there are beautiful views of the city and the Tagus River. Pedestrian walkways are lit up at night and the sun sets perfectly by the Belém Tower.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam was a short stop over before heading to Uganda. We took the train from the airport into the city, mostly to see Ann Frank’s house. That was the smoothest train ride I have ever experienced. The views of all the farms and windmills made the ride more enjoyable. For the first time, I saw a bicycle parking garage, an actual garage full of bikes, no cars whatsoever. I thought finding my car in a huge parking garage was hard, how much harder would it be to find a bike?
