While we were in Lisbon, we decided that we would try to visit at least one palace to get a little Rococo fix. Maximalism forever, please. We wanted to visit Sintra but didn’t have time, so instead we took a short trip by train to the city of Queluz to visit the National Palace there. Buildings that look like exquisite cakes: what’s not to love (unless you’re the sort who has nothing but disdain for the excesses of royal families)? The property includes a vast garden that I bet is sensational in springtime.











Spot the pineapple!

  1. I so miss my city. This makes me really nostalgic as it's been seven months since I've been *home*.
