Portugal, Lisbon 5&6

Day 5:
 Our Last full day! We went to the town Centre and had a romantic meal by the beach, walked around and looked at some of the shops. Found a thrift shop and it was so much cheaper than England everything was like £2.
In the evening we went to this restaurant on like a lagoon and then went for cocktails.

Portugal, Lisbon Day3&4


Time for T
Fell in love with this guy

Day 3:
 We decided to stay at the hotel and enjoy the pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. Was a lazy day.
 We arrived at the festival at about 5 and watch Time for T and then caught a bit of Depeche Mode. The Line up that day didn't really appeal to us so we had an early night had some drinks and then watched Star Wars Phantom Menace.


Kings of Leon
I was going for an out of focus effect (joke I cant' take photos)

Day 4:
  Last Day of Optimus Alive!
  We went to see Jake bugg and Monsters Of Men and Kings of Leon. 
  As kings of Leon was our last gig we pushed our way near to the front, they were all amazing.
We also spent most of the night in the clubbing tent and some guys went up to us and asked were we got the drugs from. Funniest night, we both realised we're rubbish dancers.

Portugal, Lisbon! Day1&2

Rainbow ring

Cool street art 

Cute cobbley roads 

  Day 1:
We got at the airport at about 1am, 3 hours before check-in, it was so weird seeing the airport so dead, we found a spot and stayed there for a bit and then killed some time in Costa.
Flight was all good, it was my first one after 3 years so I was a bit scared at first but love it anyways.
We were to early for the check-in at our hotel Vila Gale Opera, so we decided to go for the longest walk by the sea, trying to find where the festival was to see if it was walking distance. It wasn't really walking distance, we saw loads of restaurants, castle and a park so it was partly sightseeing!
When we got to the hotel, went straight to bed for an hour and then back out to get some food, this time we went the other direction from our long trek. After we ate we thought we could maybe walk to the Town Centre until we realised it was to far and settle for going to beach with cheap drinks.



Biffy Clyro



Crystal Fighters
 Day 2:
 First day of festival! We went out for breakfast at the little cafe, and had a really cool waitress teaching us Portuguese. and then went to the festival! It was so cool they had stalls for a fake tattoo, hair and speed dating!
Line up that we saw were Jame N Common, Alunageorge, Biffy Clyro, Greenday, Vampire Weekend, Disclosure and Crystal Fighters!
