The upside of growing up in #raincouver is that the rain doesn’t even phase me anymore. So when it rained almost the entire time I was in Lisbon I was still out all day cause #rainorshine I was determined to explore this new city.
Discover and Explore. Forever forward. Reading about some of these heroes which they were without question and trying to understand their actions against the people from lands they 'discovered'. #lisbon#monuments
Belém Tower is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Lisbon that played a key role in Europe’s Age of Discoveries, since it served both as a fortress and as a port from where Portuguese explorers departed to establish what would be the first European trade in history with China and India !!! #belém#belem
It is hard for me to choose between nature or city vacation. Nature usually gives me ultimate relaxation, but cities are something else. They give me infinite source of energy and freedom to roam among the crowds wild and free, day and night. I just really appreciate liveliness sometimes 🤷🏼♀️. What do you prefer, cities or nature vacations? . . . . #portugal#lisbon
Monument of discoveries ~ so much detail. This windrose was offered to Portugal by the South African Union, on the 5th Centenary of the death of Henry the Navigator, who made the discovery of the Cape of Good Hope possible #littlebitofhistory#myhistory
Not every picture is as simple as it seems 🤫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are the steps I take for the photos you see on my feed: 1. Research beforehand what the location looks like 2. Plan outfits that will stand out or match the setting 3. Collate a moodboard for inspiration 4. When I’m on site, I’ll scout for potential shooting locations 5. I use my phone to work out the best angle for each location 6. I’ll show the photos to my photographer before we begin 7. Shoot! 📸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It takes patience and dedication to create something ...
A Monument in honor of Prince Henry the Navigator. The pavement is decorated with a mosaic that was offered by the South African government in 1960, representing a compass with the map of the world charting the routes taken by the Portuguese explorers #fancythat#exploringlisbon
Unfortunately, due to some festival I couldn't actually get to the Discoveries Monument. At least it still looks awesome from a distance! The monument commemorates explorers who left Portugal to explore. The centre figure is Henry the Navigator. . . . #discoveriesmonument#belém
Monument to the Discoveries. Lisbon has its charm. From here you can enjoy a beautiful sunset , this enormous monument and the bridge 25 of July, witch is only about 500mts smaller than the Golden Gate. Soon selling apartments in privileged areas in Lisbon. Stay tuned #broadview#newhome
Portugal kicked off the Age of Discovery by mastering navigation and ship-building to sail all over the world. In Lisbon, this monument celebrates that featuring key figures. A stop at the nearby Maritime Museum is a great way to learn more. #ageofdiscovery#maritimemuseum
