    Lisbon, Portugal

    April 9 in Portugal

    I great date out in Lisbon with Jackson. We started the day off by forgetting it was an hour back. So we ended up with more time out then we originally thought. We went up a tower that I had found with another photographer last year so Jackson could see the city from above. We also came across the weirdest store i've ever seen. We both thought it was a kid's store until we got closer and realized it was a sardines store with a carousel and everything.

    We finished off the day with a long lunch at Hard Rock Café where I enjoyed a VERY messy burger and Jackson had a club sandwich.

    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.

    Utazás az ESPO-ra és a megnyitó

    June 19, 2016 in Portugal

    Nem kis szervezés után összejött: utazunk a 13.Congress of the European Society of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology-ra. Hát persze, aki a legfrissebb gyerekgyógyászati tankönyv idevágó fejezetét írja, annak itt a helye 😉! Persze az egyik fő téma az implant és környéke, szóval it's a must! És hát Lisszabon, régóta szerettem volna, és amikor itt voltam a hajóval, kimaradt a 28-as villamos, amit pótolnom kellett...
    Szóval reggel kocsi le lisztfecon, szokásos körök VIP váróban 😀, majd Lonely Planettel felfegyverkezve előbb Frankfurt, majd 1/2 4-kor lisszaboni landolás.A frankfurti átszálláskor igazi méregerős olasz kávé, jó kaja a TAP-on és síma út, szundi, csomagok ok és a Cochlear már taxival vár, 5 csillagos belvárosi szállodában lakunk (ahova alig lehet eljutni az utunkat keresztező nagy tüntetés miatt) és még a hitelkártyánkat sem zárolják!Pont megy az izlandi meccs,nem tudom streamelni mert csak otthon engedi, a szuperhotelben csak üdvözöl, de nem müxik a tv, nem jön a javító se, pedig a zuhany alatt várom😎(aztán este én csinálom meg). A kolozsvári proffal és Adrival kitaxizunk a jó messze, a folyóparton levő Belém negyedbe, ahol a kongresszus helyszínén, a Centro Culturalban beregisztrálunk, összefutunk a magyarokkal is, akik már 1 napja epekednek a csomagjaik után. A fogadás már javában zajlik, mindenféle, általában jó kajcik, szép a kilátás a teraszról, de már egyre hűvösödik, szeles is. Az utcán még elkapjuk a portugál-osztrák meccs végét a kivetítőn, semmi nagy temperamentum, aztán hazahúzunk.

  • Day1

    Isteni reggeli után urinők módjára taxival Belémbe hajtatunk, beugrunk a kongresszus előtt a Mosteiro dos Jerónomosba, a több, mint fél évezrede (!), Vasco da Gama indiai útja alkalmából alapított, az Unesco világörökség listáján szereplő kolostorba.Lonely Planet útmutatása nyomán nyitás előtt érkezünk, de már így is sorba kell állni. Beugrunk azért a Sta Maria de Belém templomba -itt nyugszik VdaG, a nagy utazó is- majd irány a Manuelin stílusban épült gyönyörű, de kicsit túldíszített, engem erősen Gaudira emlékeztető kolostor, mely valóban gyönyörű!Read more

    Még mindig a kolostor

    June 19, 2016 in Portugal

    Sajnos a turisták pillanatok alatt ellepték ezt a gyönyörű épületet - tiszta Alhambra feelingem volt valahogy, amikor kicsit elrontott mindent a nyüzsgő tömeg- de így is feltöltődve sétáltunk át a 2 percnyire levő kongresszusra.

    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
