Lifestyle! Lisbon Summer Memories

11 Oct

Hello dear readers,

It’s time for a bit of reminiscence about the summer time and how lovely it all was. I tend to forget how lucky I am to be able to spend my summers in such a sunny place as Portugal is. Lisbon is close to my heart and it is the city that ‘saw me grow’ but like many children of Lisbon I sometimes only see the bad side of it and often forget what a historic city like ours can offer people. Here are a few things I can think of from the top of my; the food, the places, the beach and river but also and most important part I guess would be – the people.

I’ll start with the food, not because I’m starting to grow an appetite or something (although I wouldn’t mind taking some bites at it) but because it is one of the things people from other countries mention about Lisbon. My friends who visit me say that the food is amazing and there is a lot of variety and all price ranges you can remember. For some amazing portuguese cooking blog check out my friend’s Marmita blog. Also you can find different types of attractions in Lisbon.
We have museums, a castle, good restaurants, good weather, amazing views, historical monuments. Most restaurants and small café’s have tables outside and you can enjoy the company of your friends while you can get a feel of the city and its vibrancy. Good wine and beer is also standard in Portugal, as most restaurants have some sort of house wine or even serve wine/beer at pressure. Modernity and History walk hand in hand in Lisbon, a place that’s becoming quite urban and vibrant.
What started out to be a post about me remembering my summer moments became like an advert to go visit Lisbon lol.. but I must say that if i had never left Portugal to go live in the UK i guess I wouldn’t appreciate it as much. Now that I miss it sometimes makes me wonder and reminisce about what a great thing we got.. so much potential.

Tell me about your city and your thoughts on it!! I’d like to hear from all of you!

      Hi dear! I grew up outside Lisbon, in a place called Almada..( very close, across that bridge) it was fun! Of course the capital is always ‘the place’ and I did my undergrad and masters there :)
