Lisbon October 2013 – the Oceanarium

The boy had a conference in Lisbon a couple of weeks ago, so I cam along as ‘plus one’. Sadly, the first couple of days weren’t exactly sunny.

It was French half-term and the city was rammed with French families, also trying to hide from the rain. On Thursday was all headed for the oceanarium (think aquarium but posher [they feed the sharks by hand]).

It’s the only aquarium in Europe with SEA OTTERS! I ruthlessly pushed all the little Jean-Pauls and Claudettes out of the way to have a good commune.

It’s an absolutely magical place…

…with some fine merchandise (although no sea otter SOCKS).
