I went to Belém with my husband today to have a walk and also to try out my favourite egg tarts. Unfortunately, that day’s weather was not so good. But we still enjoy our trip nonetheless. We decided to take the tram from Lisbon Train Station to Belém. This is a more convenient and economical way for us to reach there. Once we arrived at the Belém’s Train Station, we went to find the restaurant which my friend highly recommended the egg tarts ~ Pastéis de Belém.
Before we enter the restaurant, we saw a lot of people queueing in front of the restaurant. My husband and I were shocked to witness this. Luckily they are only queueing to take away their food. When we entered the restaurant, we found that the restaurant has ample space, and was almost filled with customers. After we found got our seat, we ordered 4 Egg Tarts and 2 cups of coffee. While I was exploring the restaurant, I also found that they have my favourite appetiser. So I ordered 2 of it too. The Egg Tarts taste a bit too sweet for my husband and me, but our friend said it was not the case for him (he is someone who doesn’t like sweet stuff).

吃了“葡塔”后，我们便到处去走走看看，顺便拍拍照。走着走着我们便到了他们的教堂 – 圣马丽亚教堂. 我们没有进到教堂内去参观，只在外面走走看看（其实是因为我们一开始并不知道 “它” 是教堂）。教堂旁边就是他们的博物馆 – 马里尼亚博物馆。
After our egg tarts, we walked around and took some photos. We walked to their Church – Igreja Santa Maria de Belém, but we didn’t enter it. Because we didn’t know that was a church. Beside the church is their museum – Museu de Marinha. We just took some photos there and enjoyed the weather.
在博物馆外拍完照后，我们便走到他们著名的贝内塔去看看。从马里尼亚博物馆走到贝内塔其实还蛮远的。当我抵达贝内塔时，天气便开始变了。从 “烈阳高照” 变成了 “狂风暴雨”。还好我还来得及和我老公合照。嘻嘻。。
After that, we walked to Belém Tower. There is a small distance to walk from the Museu de Marinha to Belém Tower. And when we reached there, the weather changed, from sunny to windy and rainy. Luckily we still get to take a few photos there.
After Belém Tower, we walked slowly to back to the train station. And of course, we also wanted to have a look at the scenery near the sea. Before we left Belém, we went to a cafe for coffee to find shelter. Although Belém is not very big, I still feel exhausted. Hahaha…
