As the taxi driver drove away from the airport towards the centre of Lisbon I started to fall in love. Walls were no longer plain. They were covered in colourful tiles and I was in picture heaven. Suffice to say I got snap happy per-retty quickly! A few hours later my phone feed was full of tiles, me posing in front of tiles and um, me holding up pasties de nata in front of tiles. All of which are now filling my Instagram feed! There’s something about all the bright colours that make photos look instantly more vibrant, exciting and just goddam wonderful. Now running out of tile infested pictures rapidly, I’m on the look out for my next holiday destination. A new holiday priority added to the list of my usual ‘must-have’ requirements (comfortable accomodation/central location etc) is how many colourful walls are there per square mile. I’m not having much luck so if you know any locations that will match my patterned Oxfam shorts then please send recommendations my virtual way!
