lisbon

☃ Season + Month: Winter/ February

☀︎ Weather: Europe is generally cold in February, but this year it’s surprisingly warm. The weather is beautiful in Lisbon, it’s mild and sunny,  however it is quite humid (7~16ºC.) Adelboden occasionally snows and mostly sunny (-5~ 3ºC.) Zurich is cold and gloomy. It rained while we were there for 1 day ( 2 ~ 9ºC.) Becej, Novi Sad and Belgrade are cold but pleasant, it also rains from time to time ( 5 ~ 15ºC.) Milan drizzles throughout the day (5 ~ 17ºC.)

We did glampacking for this trip because we had to change trains and catch buses in order to reach Adelboden, so we thought it would be much easier to use a backpack and a small carry-on luggage each. Glampacking in my definition means travel glamorously with a backpack. I will write a post about it. Since I only used a backpack and a carry-on, I could no longer bring as many things as I would usually bring in 2 large suitcases. I got a 45L Montbell backpack for birthday last year and it worked perfectly for this 15-day trip.
