Exploring Lisbon and the Estoril Coast.

Lisbon - the capital of Portugal -  is such a wonderful, vibrant city with much history and diversity. The old quarter of the Alfama contrasts with the more modern part of the city, sitting as it does on the Tagus Estuary.

Further down the coast to the west lies cosmopolitan Estoril which can be easily reached by a short train ride from Lisbon. Well worth a visit for the shops,the Tamariz beach with its wonderful waters, and the long promenade which leads to Cascais on the tip of this coast.

When young Charlotte fell into a dream and found herself - now all grown-up -  in Portugal with her friend Daisy she got into all kinds of escapades.
