It’s been three and a half months since I’ve moved to sunny Lisboa. Okay, I admit, it’s not always sunny here. But winter is packing its bags and spring is just around the corner.
A lot of people ask me: do you sometimes have regrets about moving to Lisbon? My answer is: I miss my family, friends, and familiar surroundings, but that doesn’t mean I regret this decision. I knew that travelling and moving around places requires some gut and courage. I am making the best out of my time here and that’s all that matters now.
So, let’s move on from the boring chitchat and move on to the real purpose of this blog: Lisbon city.
Lisbon really surprised me. The authentic city has not only a coffee place on every corner, but also hidden rooftop bars and gems of (cheap) restaurants that will leave you rollin’ right out of the door.
Besides the delicious food and bruising bars, Lisbon has a cool and chill nightlife too. There is a neighbourhood called Bairro Alto where all the youngsters come together at night on the colourfully decorated streets to celebrate life.
What I love most about this modest city, is the views. Wether it’s out of your own window, the famous Castelo de Sao Jorge, or one of the beautiful miradouro’s, Lisbon has some really relaxing and cool views to show you.
Another thing I learned about Lisbon is: don’t be afraid to go out there and explore things on your own. The city has tourists of course, but also a lot of locals and expats. Who knows who you will meet and have a great time with!
Furthermore, I’d like to show you my favourite spots in this city – but that will be for my next blog.
Bom dia Lisboa, I am back!
