We stayed one night in Bucharest ahead of a much longer holiday in Romania.  These images include: the Romanian Athenaeum; the Museo Nationale George Enescu; and the Kretzulescu Church.


Belem, Portugal

Belém is located on the northern banks of the Tagus estuary, west of Lisbon. Impressive places you can visit there include: the Belém Palace, home to the Portuguese President; the Museu Colecção Berardo; Mosteiro dos Jerónimos; and the Jardim Botânico Tropical.


Lisbon feels and looks like a city being rebuilt.  Buildings, roads, monuments and more are being reconstructed, repaired or replaced.  I had to work hard to find images that did not contain cranes, diggers or scaffolding…. These shots include: the Elavador de Santa Justa; the Praco do Comercio (with a crane in the background); Santa Engracia church; and even a beautiful piece of Lalique jewellery from the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian.
