    Das Ozeanarium von Lissabon

    October 6 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Heute gab es eine wirklich beeindruckende Unterwasserwelt zu sehen. Ich war ja absolut skeptisch und dachte mir, dass es ein Aquarium wie jedes andere auch sein würde aber besonders die Seadragons haben es mir absolut angetan. Diese Tiere habe ich vorher noch nie gesehen.

    All Good Things Must Come to an End

    September 9 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    The zoo was great, but as expected, many of the animals were napping in the shade. The dolphin show was cool.

    Unfortunately, today is my last day outside of the United States. I left the US on 10 June 2018 and when I return today 9 September 2019, I will have visited 4 continents (2 new ones for me), spent time in 17 countries (14 new ones for me), hashed in 15 countries (14 new ones for me), and literally flown around the globe.

    A friend asked me what was my favorite part of this trip. Seeing old friends and making new ones was definitely the best. However, what brought tears of joy to my heart was touching rescued elephants in a Thai sanctuary, hearing the piercing calls of gibbon apes from a treehouse in the jungles of Laos, feeling the surge of water from dolphins encircling me at arms length in New Zealand, smelling a glacier in Chile, and seeing prehistoric Komodo dragons in Indonesia. That just scratches the surface of how incredible our world is and the life it fosters. I am so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate in just a tiny fraction of it during this trip.

    Thank you to all the beautiful Hashers who opened their homes to me along the way, particularly but not in any particular order Soak&Romney, Xerox&Lexy&Leon, Meat&Easy, Tongue Lasher, Red Light District, Gypsey&Rewd, Automatic Balls&Time For Bed, Tickler, Sniffer Dog, Black Dog&Green Finger, Both Ends&Madam Sin, Jubes (the awesome campervan), and (almost) Mongo.


    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Day 2, Oceanario area

    September 11 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    We went to visit the Lisbon’s Oceanario in the morning, just after the open hour, it’s better if you want to avoid a long queue.
    The major attraction is the big aquarium, but also the other part deserve a visit if you love the sea 😊.
    Later we decide to get on the Vasco de Gama’s cableway for having a better view of the bridge, the tower. The view from the top it’s amazing and the price it’s only 4€ per each person ( with the Lisboa card we had a 10% discount).
    After a walk in the Parque das Nações ( the modern part of the city) we choose to go back to the Oriente Station ( famous for the architecture) for having lunch close to the Belèm Tower

    Flug nach Lissabon

    December 16, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Nachdem wir wegen Schneesturm fast nicht losfliegen konnten wurden wir von einer Frostschutz-Waschanlage versorgt und es konnte verspätet losgehen. der Flug selbst war recht holprig, sind aber alle gut in Lissabon angekommen.

    Let's fly to Azores

    August 30 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Hajnal 4.20, ki az ágyból, gyors pakolás, kicsekkolás. Este szembesültünk vele, hogy hajnalban nem jár az a busz, ami a reptérre megy. 25 perc helyett átszállással egy óra lenne a busz út, de az meg hajnal 3kor indult volna és már 4kor kint lennénk, a gép meg 7kor száll fel. De még a metró se jár 7 óráig, az Airport busz is 7.30kor kel, mi legyen. Uber jó lenne, de ha itt semmi nem mozdul hajnalban, Uber miért mozdulna. Rakerdeztunk este, mondták az mindig van.
    Szóval uberen keresztül hívtunk autót, 7 euróért ki is vitt minket a reptérre, és most már várjuk a felszállást. Hahó Azori, jövünk :)

    Waiting for the Anschlussflug

    December 16, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Zum Glück hat auch der Anschlussflug nach Gran Canaria ein wenig Verspätung, sonst wäre der Umstieg echt sportlich gewesen. So war noch Zeit für einen leckeren heißen weißen Tee am Gate ☕️

    October 16, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    I am now in the Star Inn which is a modern luxury hotel, a two minute walk from Lisbon airport. Just what I need. Completely whacked after a long flight from Sydney. Wonderful full-on rainfall shower does fabulous things for the human spirit! As did my first pastel de nata with good Portuguese coffee. I’ve washed my smalls and now intend to burrow under the snowy white sheets, turn on the tv (movies in English with Portuguese subtitles) and stay put until daylight tomorrow.Read more
