Trip to Lisbon

So here is the post I thought i had posted but actually I had only saved!

I promised to tell you guys about my trip to Lisbon, the gift that my BF, Mado gave to me on my 23rd birthday. After celebrating my birthday the day before, we got up early and went to Kastrup, Copenhagen Airport and we were on our way to Lisbon.

After a small amount of sleep, one overlay, overexcitment and a 5 something hour flight, we were both ready to go relax at our hotel when we landed. But as unlucky as I am, my suitcase hadn't arrived, it was stuck i Munich, with all my clothes and eveything else i had packed for the trip. So there was nothing to do but go to the hotel without it. When we arrived i was amazed! There, in the centre of Lisbon was a castle ruin, and part of that ruin is rebuild as a hotel, this is where Mado had made our reservation. Imagine staying in the ruins of an old european castle. It was a beautiful place and very unique.
Lisbon is a beautiful old city going all the way to the water, with small cozy cafes and restaurant. There is lots to see and you get a good work out too with walking up and down some of the steep streets.
We weren't out much the first day, exhausted as we were.

The next morning we got woken up by approximatly 10 peacocks having a blast in the hotel garden, right outside our blacony, peacocks are really beautiful birds, but they don't sound as the look, they make an awful lot of noise! We ate breakfast in the garden, surounded by theese beautiful, majestic birds it was an experience I will never forget. We walked around Lisbon and decided to visit the ruins of the castle. There was a beautiful view from the castle walls showing almost the entire city of  Lisbon, we decided to take a picture there. Mado set up the camera and when he came closer to me he said he had one more gift for me.
It was a pair of binoculars, he told me to try them out, so i looked out at the city. And that's when he put a ring right in my line of vision.

So suddenly i was engaged, it was crazy, telling my parents, telling my friends and family (Half of them thought it was a joke?!) It was the most amazing day in my life and i know i have yet many more to come, with this amazing man, that is now my fiancĂ©! 
The rest of our days in Lisbon was a blur, we went all kinds of different places, saw a lot of things, ate A LOT of delicious food and generally spend a lot of time in 7th heaven.... Sometimes when i think back, i still can't believe that he actually proposed.

I love you, you are my everything <3


Okay okay, how did I react???
Well, first i didn't believe it and my first words was no no no...(I'm really embarrassing to have around you know?) Because I was really not getting it, oblivious as I am! Then came all the hugs and kisses as it dawned on me what was happening, but he actually had to ask me: "So what is the answer?" and of course it was YES! A million times YES! Forever...
