I thought I would show you some of my favorite shots from Lisboa and write a little bit more about the city! Lisboa was such a beautiful city. I didn’t feel like the distances were too big, which means you can walk lots of places and that’s a huge plus! We walked a lot, but we also ended up using the metro regularly, and we were surprised about how easy it was to manage the metro system there. Anyways, you find multiple charming, old trams around the city (like the one on the first picture) and it should be on your “to do” list if you visit Lisboa. Jump on one of them, put music on and watch everything the city has to offer from your window. Get off at some view point, grab a beer in the sun and enjoy the view.
Walking around in a new city without any specific plans are definitely one my favorite things to do when I travel. I always end up finding something unique: A pretty cafe, a new friend, amazing pastry or colorful streetart. I highly recommend doing so where ever you travel. It doesn’t matter if you are travelling with someone or if you are by yourself. Both ways are great, and I promise that you will find something cool!
Camilla, my bestie from Norway taught us stuff about Lisboa, Portuguese culture and we even learned a couple of phrases. So one of the things you can’t miss out on is pastel de nata. It is a Portuguese custard tarte, and you can get them basically on every corner in the city. Definitely something you need to try if your in town. Another thing they are known for are their Bacalhau (which is dried and salted cod), and you can easily grab one from a restaurant or even from a pastry.
Bring your camera, because there will be lots of beautiful spots to shoot nice pictures. The tiles on all the houses made me super stoked and I really want to go back one day and get some for my future kitchen or bathroom.
Well, what are you waiting for? Book your ticket and see it yourself! Hihi!
