You might be wondering how the hell did I end up in Lisbon when I'm doing my MSc thesis in Seoul - believe it or not, Gerald, Kent and me ended up becoming one of the 10 Thought For Food Challenge 2015 finalist teams! Hence Syngenta sponsored our trip to the finals, which took place in Lisbon. Naturally, we had only 1.5 days left for sightseeing since we had to work non-stop on our pitch for the rest of the week, but we tried to make the most of it anyways.

Also, sometime later, I will upload an article about the event - aren't you curious about an event where in vitro meat, color-changing flowers and start-ups are taken dead seriously?

For the time being, please enjoy the picturesque city of Lisbon with its gorgeous tiles, cool street art and amazing architecture.

Foggy Lisbon = the most beautiful Lisbon. Also, my first time seeing fog that originated from the sea! #NoSeaInMyCountry

Lisbon trams win over those in Prague in terms of cuteness for sure.

Apparently, Lisbon is Kent's second home, so he knows an amazing bar where you can only get through a really shady parking lot. The view is totally worth the creeps though!
