The long weekend is coming up here in Launceston and I was thinking of getting away.  I’m dreaming of Sintra, Portugal…

Praça da Republica, Sintra, Portugal, 2002

or Guanajuato, Mexico (see it HERE) – incredible image by Nadsart.

…but it will more than likely be somewhere like Hobart, Tasmania. (o:

Whichever way, it would be lovely to have a little break!

.pretty palace. April 15, 2010

I’m not sure why, but today, I felt a bit nostalgic for a certain palace that Paul and I visited in Portugal a few years ago.  It’s called Pena Palace, perched on the tallest mountain in the unbelievably gorgeous town of Sintra.  It is so ornate and beautiful and incredibly inspiring in so many ways, so I had to dig out the photos and post some of them.  

Sadly,  no photos are allowed to be taken inside, so I outdid myself with pics of the outside to compensate!

Yes, if you have good eyes, that is me and my friend Melissa in our very own turret each…*sigh* what a lovely day that was!!

So I hope you are having a very lovely day wherever you are – Launceston, Sintra, somewhere inbetween!
