Which Way photo challenge – February 5 2021

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. 

Going through my photos to enter this challenge I came across this one which reminded me of one of my trips to Portugal.

This bridge is in Lisbon, the Ponte 25 de Abril over the Tejo River. My photos are the link I have at the moment to the wonderful places I visited and want to revisit. Lisbon, of course, is a home away from home for me. 2020 and probably 2021 will represent the longest I’ve gone without visiting Lisbon – and travel in general – in the last 10 years or so.

I’m fortunate to have the photos – one look at them is enough to transport me to that day, that moment or that experience – triggering the memories.  That will have to do for now, until it’s safe to travel or I’ve received a vaccine. I suspect that those two things will occur at approximately the same time.
