    Lisbon - Arrival Day

    April 19, 2017 in Portugal

    Finally arrived. Flight was about 30 minutes late, but all was good. Very smooth flight but man did we come in hot on that runway! I thought the plane was going to shake apart when he slammed those brakes. Temps were mid 70's and quite the contrast from Munich a few hours before. Headed for the exit and found a tourism office - bought some tickets on the AeroBus for 3.60 Euros each which took us downtown and dropped us 3 minutes away from our AirBnb. Hiked up a hill to the address (thank you Google maps!) and faced an apt building with about 7 different buzzer buttons. Of course I didn't know the right one! So after some digging through various apps,emails,etc I stumbled across it! She buzzed us in and we came in on the ground floor looking for 1D. No signs -so we climbed a flight of stairs to the next landing to face 3 doors, none of which had numbers. So we discussed that for a moment (or is cussed the right word?) when she must have heard us and opened the door.

    Lovely young girl who was very pleasant. She got a map out and showed us some things around the city and pointed out a few good restaurants she knew of, so tonite we are headed there! Will post some photos later. Hope we stay awake!

    So as you can see we made it to Quermesse - http://quermesse-restaurante.com/en/. Casual place - I had made a reservation on line so when I came , I was greeted by a "Welcome Mr. Mark" and a smile - (probably not that many idiot foreigners reserve over the web! :). Casual place - maybe 8 tables or so - filled up quickly. Had a nice waitress who spoke excellent English - helpful! This was like a block from where we are staying so that made it even better. Afterwards took a walk around town - went over to the train station and bumped into people dancing at 10pm! See video. Finally back at apt and crashing.

    Lissabon, Portugal

    July 28, 2017 in Portugal

    Anstrengende Busfahrt von Lagos nach Lissabon. Dort angekommen, bestand die erste Schwierigkeit, in der Metrostation die Orientierung und den Weg ins Zentrum zu finden. Dort beteiligte ich mich dem neuen Fitnesstrend - Gehen mit schwer bepacktem Rucksack, aufwärts, abwärts und wieder zurück - bei brütender Hitze! Im Hostel hieß es nur kurz frischmachen und dann auf zur Erkundungstour. Nach dem Anstieg zum Miradouro do Jardim do Torel, mit einem guten Ausblick über große Teile der Stadt, war die Motivation aber auch schon am Ende und so ruhte ich mich für die anstehende Feast Night aus.Read more

    Lisbon

    June 28, 2016 in Portugal

    Our Tour started with 3 nights in Lisbon, based in a modern boutique Bessahotel in the Restoration Square area on the Avenida da Liberdade. We have enjoyed exploring the flatter down town areas which are accessible in the buggy and today took a tour with a private tour guide to see the historic area of Belen from where the Portuguese set sail in the late 1400's & 1500's to discover Africa, India, Asia & China. We saw the tomb of Vasco da Gama in the Monisterio de Jeronimo. . From there we moved on so Richard could take a tour of the Benfica football stadium. Then finally Pedro our guide drove us around the steeply hilly districts of Baixa Alto & Alfama with their tiny winding streets which would have been completely inaccessible to us with the buggy !Read more

    De skønne gamle sporvogne

    June 30, 2017 in Portugal

    Lissabon er bl.a. kendt som "byen på de syv høje", sine mange smukke og spændende attraktioner og seværdigheder, men bestemt også for sine smukke, skønne og fantastiske gamle sporvogne og tro mig, når først dine ben er godt ømme at at trave op og ned af de mange stejle gader, vil du NYDE at kunne sætte dig ind i en af disse sporvogne, som faktisk i sig selv er en "attraktion".
