Agnes**: Gone with the wind | Lisbon, Portugal

Isn't Agnes awesome? I hope the wind blows her in my direction before too long.

**This is part of a week-long series of photographs sent in by friends standing on, over or above exciting places around the world**

The ground beneath his feet | Lisbon, Portugal

Remember Tiago – my Brazilian friend, the contagious enthusiast, the tireless dancer and musician, the modern nomad and the ceaseless charmer? He also turns out to be quite the perceptive photographer. Just as I was starting to really miss him (and trying to hold him up to his promise to come back to Sofia in April – in print for those of you who speak Bulgarian), he sent me several beautiful pictures of the ground (and in one case, the sea) beneath his feet taken in Lisbon. (Hi, Tiago!)

This post also goes in the “wishful thinking” category, as Lisbon is in the top of my wish list of places I’d like to visit (another one being Stockholm). The complete, ever-changing list is here.
