It was time to do a little holiday with my mother so we decided to go to Lisbon/Portugal for a few days. Flights and hotels were booked in no time over the internet and we were ready to go. Lisbon is a great place. Nice people, good food and great landscape. Unfortunately I missed to do some pics on the flight from BSL
(landing over the city which is amazing) so I can only show you pics of the return flight.
After a good breakfast at the hotel we headed to the airport, only approx. 15 minutes away from the city center.
fare: 391 Swiss Francs return for my mother and me (early booked)
load factor: 80%-90%

Dedicated to fellow a.net user joelatbsl who shoots many great pics from this spot. Usually this is where the aircraft touch down but at the moment there are constructions going on and the runway is shorter.
