Extraordinary Adventure 2018 Day 17: Fade Out

We’ve come to the end. Our last day in Lisbon and our last day on this extraordinary adventure has arrived and it was hard to come to terms with it this morning. So much so that we just tried to sleep through it. We didn’t wake up until a little after 9 AM. I went to get us some Starbucks and we stayed in and relaxed until noon.

Extraordinary Adventure 2018 Day 16: A Wild Ride

Today was the first day of our entire 2+ week adventure that I could physically feel Jenn and I start to slow down. We only have a few days left on the trip and we both could sense it as we woke up this morning. We had one tour planned for the day and that would be it for the trip. The rest was on our own, We took our time waking up this morning, more so then normal, and made it to our 10 AM Tuk Tuk tour a few minutes late.

Extraordinary Adventure 2018 Day 15: Canned Fresh

Before we left on this extraordinary adventure the weather seemed like it was going to be in the 90’s from beginning to end. We lucked out and had very mild whether in our first three stops, but the sun was out in full effect today in Lisbon. We woke up around 8 AM and I went for a run while Jenn got ready for the day. Right around 10 AM we took an Uber to the Campo de Ourique where we picked up our third and final food tour of the trip.

Extraordinary Adventure 2018 Day 14: Sailing into the Sunset

Having a late flight is a double edge sword. On one hand you don’t have to wake up early and rush out of the hotel. On the other you lose some or most of your day to travel. We didn’t have to leave our Madrid hotel this morning until 11 AM so we stayed relatively lazy. I was able to get a run in and by the time I got back and showered it was time to head to the airport.

Extraordinary Adventure 2018 Day 12: The Cultured Madrid

I'll be completely honest, we probably had a little too much to drink last night. We woke up at 7 AM and decided we needed a little bit more sleep. Four hours later we woke up with the sun shining in our room and our bodies still recovering from a fun food tour last night. When we finally did recover enough to go outside we missed our free breakfast (probably not the last time) and instead went across the street to Starbucks. Jenn got her normal hot chocolate and I had a cappuccino. After we scarfed those down we were on our way.
