. . . the list of places still to visit grows by the moment, but one place that can hardly believe have missed [too many visits to paris, perhaps?], is one of the world's oldest cities, lisbon, if for no other reason than to make a wish at the stunningly lovely and impossibly romantic pink fountains . . .

Nothing wrong with too many visits to Paris! Although judging by the pictures, Lisbon is just as worthy of a destination. Hope you are able to visit one day :)

Yes, Lisbon is a city of fountains, although sadly most no longer have water. You found a couple of the nicest ones and if you want to see more and know the history behind all of them, see this list: http://www.lisbonlux.com/magazine/10-monumental-drinking-fountains-in-lisbon/

Wonderful to see my city in one of your posts! Lisbon is indeed an amazing city. I'm a portuguese blogger and a proud Lisbon born girl, living across the river in Montijo.
