For the past few years, I’ve been traveling more frequently and usually pick one new destination a year, last year I thought I’d try something new – country hopping! I decided to fit in three countries in two and half weeks.
I traveled in September 2016 just to make sure the weather held up. My first stop was Lisbon!
If you’re on a budget this would be a great destination, food and hotels are reasonable.
Parts of Lisbon are hilly but I found it easy to get around by foot. These are the main neighbourhoods…
- Belem – the cultural quarter.
- Alfama – the winding old hilltop.
- Baixa Chiado – the downtown district.
- Bairro Alto – the bustling bar scene.
My cool hotel.
