Our first visit to Portugal in 2015 introduced us to the beautiful tiles that adorn so many of this nation's buildings. When we arrived back in Lisbon this month our first destination was the Museu Nacional do Azulejo (National Tile Museum).

We knew from our initial (and all too short) visit last year that we wanted to spend more time in Lisbon and earlier this month we did just that. Flying from Boston to Lisbon via TAP Portugal was an easy and enjoyable five-hour flight. We arrived at 7:15 in the morning and by 9:00 am had settled into our cozy Airbnb flat.
