This will be the final post on my series on Lisboa. Today, I am taking you to one of my favourite places to visit: the beach!

A little while ago, I did a series on Rotterdam. I enjoyed it, it gave me a new perspective on a city I’ve know for years, and helped me to stay in love with photography. It was so much fun, that I decided to do this more! In the second week of June, my girlfriend
