    Frühstück in Lissabon, Dinner überm Ozea

    August 31, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Hey ihr Lieben!
    Mein erster Eintrag, viel Spaß!

    3uhr morgens deutscher Zeit begann ich meine Reise am Flughafen Berlin Tegel. Mit ein wenig Verspätung durch nicht funktionierende Gepäckbänder landete ich hungrig gegen 9:30Uhr portugiesischer Zeit in Lissabon.
    Die Stadt empfing mich mit wärmender Sonne und dem leckersten Frühstück jemals. Frischer Orangen-Minz-Saft, geröstetes Brot mit Basilikumpesto und gegrilltem Gemüse und als Abschluss zimtiges Porridge mit frischen Früchten! Gestärkt und mit neuer Energie kraxelte ich zu den schönsten und höchsten Aussichtspunkten!
    Gegen 14:30uhr war ich zurück am Flughafen nur um zu erfahren, dass mein Flug um fast 2h verspätet sei... yeay!
    Wie auch immer, nach einem langen langen Flug von fast 9h landete ich dann todmüde in Salvador da Bahia, meiner ersten Station.
    Meine wundervolle Couchsurferin Erika holte mich zusammen mit einem Freund im Auto vom Flughafen ab und zeigten mir schon mal ein bisschen die Stadt.
    Palmen, das Meer ganz nah und überall fröhliche Menschen auf der Straße, die ihr Wochenende genießen. Sehr schöner erster Eindruck!
    Jetzt liege ich endlich geduscht auf der Couch in Erikas Wohnung mit einem sehr laut summenden Kühlschrank, aber einer Menge Tatendrang und freudiger Erwartung für die nächsten Tage!

    Miradouro da Graça

    September 6, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Nach einem intensiven Aufstieg, haben wir dann den Tag am wunderschön Ausblick am Miradouro da Graça mit Bier und Wein ausklingen lassen. Auch wenn wir kein Hunger mehr hatten, gab es noch Käse dazu, sonst hätten wir durch die Corona-Regeln kein Alkohol bekommen 😊.Read more

    Igreja da Graca lisbon

    June 9, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Wandered up the hill to this church, also a good view were were told and indeed it was. lots of street festivals. we had our dinner here and the fellow who served us told us that all the neighbourhoods have their own parties so everywhere you go there are these tents set up for cooking and tables and mostly the menu is sardines, pork, cal do verde (green broth), sometimes bata (potato), and lots of beer and sangria.

    Look at the way that car is parked on a slope of 3 stairs.

    View of the Casle from this next church. the castle has the flags waving in the wind.

    Graca Church

    July 21, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Really looking to see the interior of the Graca Church, which is right next to the 'Ponto de Vista' Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, but there was a wedding being held today, so will return in the week and find out more!

    This building was 'next door' but appears to be a part of the church itself and inside there is an exhibition of 'The Procession of Corpus Christi', which was instituted by Pope Urban IV in 1266

    In 1777 it was proclaimed that ...the procession shall have no heifers, giants, snakes, dragons and grass matts, cars or other similar things that used to represent the crafts, nor any kind of dance, nor the moors that used to accompany St George; no woollen pallium shall go in the procession but a richer one; the senate shall order the placement of chains in the entrance of the streets that lead to the procession

    Igreja da Graca square lisbon

    June 9, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We made our way back up to the Grace church square.

    En route we passed a beautiful building calle the Oporina? they were having some sort of celebration there. All these young girls were dressed in these big wide flaring skirts and the boys were dressed like matadors.

    Also saw more loquat trees, norfolk island pines.

    I thought someone was following behind me a bit too close so I stepped out in between the parked cars to allow him to pass, then he was following a bit too close to colin. You have to watch it here as there are pickpockets everywhere the tourists congregate. Lots of signs out too warning you of the pickpockets.

    we got back up to the church square where there was a stage set up. Got a couple of shots of the sun on the church, but that is on the other camera so will have to wait till we get back home!

    my phone ran out of battery.....I think I took about 300 pics today.

    The concert started at 830 and went to around 10. Very good singer, with a fellow on a beat box and another with a guitar. They played a mixture of English and Portuguese pop music. The crowd was bouncing and singing along. Guns and roses, Clapton, they even played Bryan Adams summer of 69!

    We took the tram #28 back to our neighbourhood, although we were not entirely sure it was running as we were waiting, but they have little signs giving you the estimated time of arrival, and sure enough it showed up! a group of French tourists came to the stop late and then tried to be first on. I pushed in front....we were there first and we didn't want to miss getting a seat if possible. We didn't want to wait again in case the tram stopped running.
