My last-minute trip to Lisbon brought me back to life. After grey skies and rain in London for more days than I can handle, I needed some sun. One of the best things about being self-employed is the ability to work from anywhere. Working away was something I had dreamed about since leaving my permanent 9-5 design job. 

The city is stunning, it felt like a mix of San Francisco and Cuba. It's full of personality and beautifully tiled buildings. The city is like an atrtists colour palette, earthy colours of yellow, orange and pinks pop out from the sun drenched white houses of Alfama, Because the city was built on 7 hills you are always getting amazing views up and down its streets.
