Wedding Week: Day 2. A Tour of Belem and a Sunset Sail down the Tagus River!

Sunday, 27.08.17. Lisbon, Portugal. 4 days until the wedding. First full day in Europe.

Day 2 was everyone’s first full day in Lisbon, and it was a packed one! I organized a self-guided tour of Bรฉlem for our guests who had arrived in Lisbon and an evening sail on the Tagus river during sunset. We also had dinner plans with Craig, Michelle, and Andree and Hotel Avenida Palace thew us a surprise sparking wine party! Needless to say, we started early, with a bus picking everyone up (well, 13 of us) at 9:00 AM (after Nutella croissants, of course!). While I think a few people were skeptical of my Portuguese bus renting abilities, our driver arrived early in a nice bus/van with room for everyone. He even spoke a tiny bit of English! Pro tip – if you are traveling with a large group, a bus rental is a FABULOUS idea.
