19 hours of travel. 2 hours flight delay. 1.30 a.m hotel check-in. 3.5 hours of sleep.
Who would have thought that I’d be crazy enough or even remotely interested to join in a 7 a.m. walking activity organised by the conference’s committee when I’m so dead tired after all that travelling fun!
Under normal circumstances, I would not have even considered waking up so early just to have a morning walk. But this wasn’t normal: I’m jet-lagged, I’m not extending my stay and I thought that given the circumstances in being surrounded by fresh air, a walk with a bunch of strangers was all I needed to at least see a little of Lisbon.
My feet throbbed like hell. But, it was well-worth it!
