Lisbon and Sintra from captivating Portugal!

This is my second visit to Lisbon in the last 5 years. I don’t know what it is about Portugal that takes me back to the country. Is it the food? the wine? the people? or the weather? Is it because of my sweet memories in Rossio or the Vasco Da Gama bridge or the color…
