Know what was my favorite part about traveling to Dublin for 6 days in November? Leaving for two! Don’t get me wrong, I still wish to explore Ireland, but with more warmth, next time. “So why’d you go during the cold and for so little time?” You ask. Fair question. I was visiting a friend during my wee Thanksgiving break, ok?! And the flight was only $234 round-trip or “return flight” as some may say. Round-trip makes more sense to me, but I digress. Said friend had the novel idea of visiting Lisbon for the weekend, so to Lisbon we went – with free loding! Free lodging – how? Connections, child. Hello, sun! For one day, at least. Better than nothing.
