What I Love About Lisbon

Lisbon

It’s a bit over ten years since my last visit to Lisbon. That trip was with my ex-boyfriend, his new boyfriend, and another friend who had also once been in a long-term relationship with my ex-boyfriend. It had seemed like a good idea at the time, but obviously it wasn’t.

This trip I was travelling with Liviu. It was his first visit to Lisbon and I was excited to be rediscovering the city.

We had booked an apartment through misterb&b. It was easy enough to navigate our way from the airport, via the fast and efficient metro system to find our apartment on Rua da Oliveira ao Carmo. This turned out to be a great location – central, and within easy walking of everything that we needed.

Getting Our Bearings

Liviu was keen to hit the beach straight away, but this isn’t Barcelona, so I instead persuaded him that a walk around the city was a good way to get our bearings.

Rattling trams and buzzing tuk-tuks are on hand if you can’t quite face the multitude of steps, but if you’ve got the energy this a great city for working up an appetite while walking.
