Dear Lisbon Valmor is located in an historical palace of 1906. It is an eclectic house built at the beginning of an era in search of the standards of the “Casa Portuguesa”. 🦚 We are in love for this new addition to the Dear Lisbon family! 📸 @alexreyto for @theperfecthideaway

“Depression is being colourblind and constantly told how colourful the world is” -Atticus (@atticuspoetry)
Some people are lucky and have never suffered from depression. But there are those that suffer greatly and often in silence.
Lately I have been revisiting this topic and have come to some conclusions.
In my lifetime I have experienced various types of depression, the kind that seems to come from nowhere and hangs overhead like a dark cloud, colouring all pleasure and joy with an unexplained sadness.
There is the kind of depression that has come after a breakup or losing a job, where all you want to do is stay in bed and wait for the world to disappear.
The latter for me is always easier to overcome. I know the direct cause and can use tools at my disposal to get through said difficult times. I’m a big believer that time heals all. Eventually.
But the former is far more tricky. Is it hereditary? Are you simply an empath and don’t know it? Is it your diet?
While we may never have all the answers for this, there are things that I have found that have helped me greatly to reduce my episodes of depression, particularly the ones that I seem to have no explanation for.
Over the next few posts I will share precisely the steps I have taken to greatly improve my mental health and strengthen my mind and spirit.
The city of hills, where walking 10km felt like foreverrr on the glutes and the feet but when it involves walking in places like this, it all makes it worth it. Lisbon has been the most challenging place to walk where walking almost feels like hiking with its steep landscape. It’s all fun and glory to go down hill and not so lovely to go uphill (thank you boarding school in the hills, you’re the reason I don’t crib one bit). The best part? This was like working out during travelling which made me relish all the sangrias and custard tarts guiltlessly (not like I feel guilty when I’m travelling but this was definitely added satisfaction). I highly recommend walking no matter where you go, because how would I walk in beautiful lanes like this and see the narrower streets if it wasn’t for walking to places ? How would I feel the place and see a unique house decorated with rose baskets if it wasn’t for walking ? How will I eat local street food which isn’t filled with tourists if it wasn’t for walking ? Moreover, even though I wasn’t solo travelling in Lisbon, exploring by foot makes all my senses alive all together 💫
San Francisco or Lisbon? 👀 For those who don’t know, this is a famous bridge in Lisbon, and this viewpoint is by the Cristo Rei statue. We have just arrived in this beautiful city so, ‘bom dia’ Lisboaaaa 🇵🇹💛
