Of weddings and awards

The wedding of my cousin in Hamburg snowballed into a four-week trip to Europe with visits to Holland, Lisbon and four of Portugal’s islands in the Atlantic.

On Portugal’s mainland, I was able to attend this year’s World Summit Awards. This time not as a winner, but as a juror.
Well organized with lots of interesting sessions, it was the best incarnation of the event I have yet attended.
Sadly, with a busy work schedule on the back burner, I had too little time to also relax and enjoy the cities of Lisbon and Cascais, just outside of Lisbon, which was hosting the event.

I did manage to squeeze in half a day of sightseeing in Lisbon and got myself to the Gulbenkian Mussum, housed in a set of brutalist buildings inside a popular park, where tame ducks can be fed by hand.
