Lisboa

Portugal


Bom dia! I have to admit Lisbon was not love at first sight, it took me a while to feel the city.

The first thing I noticed, it seemed to be full of happy people. Maybe because of ‘marijuana, hashish‘? I’ve never been offered weed so many times walking down the streets anywhere else in Europe as I have in Lisbon. No matter what, the city has a great atmosphere. It is all up and down. Lisbon has so many hills, which means lots of climbing up winding roads to spectacular views. In general, I had a great view over the whole city whenever reached the end of a steep street. 

Bacalhau (dried cod), prepared in many ways, while in Portugal is a must.  Every day it was on my menu. I even liked the way people say ‘bacalhau’. I stayed in the city’s oldest neighbourhood of Alfama, where almost every single building facade is covered in tiles. The old town is beautiful, as an architect I was more impressed with Expo area. Expo ’98 closed its doors, but this area has a new function, today is thriving, modern and stylish with gardens, museums, commercial areas and modern buildings. This city offers so much and, as an addition, has amazing sunsets.

TIP: Try a night out in Lisbon, the main action is in the Bairro Alto. This neighborhood is different from day to night.
