Sometimes I like to take my camera with me and just walk around the city, looking at things and observing people. As a photographer I like to be in the shadows. Did that sound creepy? Haha. I like it when people don’t acknowledge me and just go about their business as usual. I like spontaneity.
I’ve been researching a lot of street photography. To take what’s ordinary and make it interesting and visually pleasant, I think that’s an amazing thing to do. Of course, in my case, Lisbon helps as it is full of history and beauty.
My best friend, Filipa, and I are foodies. We’re also broke young adults so we can’t go out to eat as much as we’d like. But every once in a while we make time and save some cash to go on an eating spree. We like to try new places as much as we can.
Today we went to Magnolia Caffé for brunch because it was recommended to us. Now just so you understand how much we ate, let me tell you… it’s 9 pm and I’m still not hungry. Yeah.
Honestly the food wasn’t super amazing. I mean, those muffins were the bomb, but some of the other foods didn’t make me go wow. But it’s cheap, and a buffet, so we definitely weren’t complaining. The place itself has a nice feel to it, super relaxed but not especially cosy. There were families, and also big groups of friends. We spent two and a half hours eating and talking (we are talkers, especially when it’s just the two of us).
It was a good sunday morning, but I still haven’t found my go-to brunch place in Lisbon!
