Let’s start there. One of the words beyond translation it represents a feeling in Portuguese, something we all know too well. A sense of loss, a sense of wanting, the desire of things that have past, things that might not return but we love dearly, with all our hearts. We have a word for it, but I think the feeling is universal.
All pictures are from where my heart lingers but cannot return, for now. They all start with an S too.
Typical Portugal… Sand and sea. A sunset facing the Atlantic Ocean, a lot calmer than usual.
The old medieval cobbled streets of Óbidos, houses with strips of colour to fence off evil spirits. The patterns of Street art under our feet in Lisbon. The never ending sky and the light that is so unique. The Summer feeling of the striped beach houses in Gafanha da Nazaré.
To finish, a view of Sintra‘s Palácio da Pena. Reading Patti’s prompt to this challenge and her photo of Sintra was the inspiration for my post. As soon as I saw Sintra, one of my favourite places in the world, I knew exactly where I wanted to go.
