There was a 10 hour train journey to get to Lisbon. The compartment I was in had four beds, less than half the size of my studio flat in London and I had it all to myself. I got a solid 4 hour sleep on the journey and passed the time watching Family Guy, reading and of course, wondering if the train would go fast enough to make me fall out of the top bunk.
Earlier I went to Sintra which is just under 40 minutes away from Lisbon via train. I’ve not yet had a proper chance to explore Lisbon as it has been constantly raining and there was a slight problem involving a flip flop and my ankle swelling, so hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to explore the city.
