Visiting Lisbon

Lisbon. What a great city. It has good food, good surfing waves, rich culture and lots and lots of beautiful sights.

I got to spend three nights in the city and it was not nearly enough. For people like me who like to just walk around and explore, is the perfect place where you probably could spend a couple of weeks and still discover new things.

The only thing I did not like was the amount of tourists in the city. And if it had been summer Im sure it would even have been double of what it was in January. I had originally planned to ride the famous #28 line cable car, but when I saw the huuge line of tourists waiting at Martim Moniz stop where the tram starts from I lost all interest. Instead I decided to walk the whole 7km tram line where I got to see everything in my own pace.

The view from this tower cost me 2€

Lisbon really is a nice city to walk around, but it was frustrating that they put entrance on absolutely everything. It cost almost 10€ to visit the castle, whereas the rest of the World a place like that would have been free.

The city parks were also great. It was january and still there were 20 degrees out, which is the reason why it was possible for turtles and beobab trees to live there. Lisbon is a city I could see myself living in at some point. At least I will come back to spend some more time here.
