Angels are Everywhere

Angels have always been important to me; they represent love, light, heaven, family, God, and peace. I was drawn to them even as a child. My mom took all five of us to church after church in Rome and Florence. I think those early memories were what make angles and churches resonate with me. Now that I am housebound, I have my pictures, and I travel in my mind back to all of these beautiful places.

Rome and Lisbon are two of my favorite cities. I love looking at these trips and looking forward to my next trip. I am hunkering down now and staying home, but as soon as I get my wings back, I will fly.

I hope you are all well, and sheltering in place with your little angels, mine are not so small but I am enjoying them. Stay safe & healthy, and remember angels are everywhere. XOXOXO

The streets of Lisbon are full of art!

Every where I look I see art in Lisbon! I love it!

Hope you enjoy it too!

Where Shall We Go?

As I get prepared for my next trip to Europe, this time it is Portugal. I reflect on the things that make up a successful trip. I will fill you in on the details when I return! I have not been to Lisbon and beyond in over 40 years.

  1. A well-planned group, if you are with a tour, make sure the tour company puts like people together. There is nothing better than making life long friends through travel!
  2. Great art and architecture, go off the beaten path…in Europe, any church will provide beauty.
  3. Fabulous food & drink, learn about the culture through their specialties.
  4. Live like a local, dining, shopping and enjoying daily life like a local is the BEST part of traveling.
  5. Read and study your destinations before you go, you will get so much more out of your travels.
  6. Pack smartly, you will need the essentials and can buy what you forget to bring when you arrive. Some of my favorite purchases have been due to necessity.
  7. Take pictures…but be present in the moment! Enjoy being in this new and exciting environment, don’t miss out by taking selfies.

I will keep you all in the loop if you have any suggestions for Lisbon or Porto we would love to hear them.

Best, Celia
