I really enjoyed Portugal. I’ve been to many cities in the world, but Lisbon was one that I thought wow I will be coming back here again.
I enjoyed the sun, the culture, the architecture. It’ s a European city that is extraordinarily budget-friendly, and not to mention very easy to navigate and explore in-depth. Although I met my friends who were already there, so I didn’t get to experience everything. I still feel like what I did see was enough for me to want to go back again.
Why would I go back to Lisbon…
I would go back to Portugal for several reasons and if you’re interested in finding out why then carry on reading below:
Lisbon is so chilled…
Unlike every other European city, I’ve been too. I really enjoyed the calm and gentleness of the city. Of course, we had a few issues here and there, but overall the city had a sense of real welcomeness which I can assure you hasn’t happened in every country I’ve been too.
A real, unique infrastructure…
Lisbon had a real mix of baroque and neoclassical buildings, including cathedrals and palaces. The city is a combination of old and new, with beautiful modern buildings constructed near renovated historical landmarks and ruins. I enjoyed the infrastructures because I hadn’t seen anything like it before it was covered with azulejo tiles, a style that’s rarely seen outside the country.
It’s an excellent place for new travellers
If you have considered travelling, but are yet to do so, then, I would suggest Lisbon. I clearly enjoyed going to Lisbon. I have spoken on the not so glam aspect, I have also talked on the exciting elements. I understand that if you aren’t a traveller, then travelling can sometimes be a little scary. However, Lisbon is a great place to start and shake off those travel fears (if you have them).
It is effortless to navigate, there is a metro, and uber is exceptionally cheap with great options for Airbnb stay.
There is a mixture of experiences
Lisbon is an excellent place for food. I enjoyed the egg tarts *the best I’ve ever had* and oh my there seafood was absolutely fantastic. I was blessed to go to one of the best seafood restaurants in town. If you would like to try then head over to Ramiro. Thank me later!
I also was given a lovely place by Temi @thepalateport to go to Bonjardim and it was absolutely amazing!
Travel Tip: Let people on your social know where you are. Try and engage with them, ask them what you should do! People usually come up with something.
I really enjoyed Lisbon, and I will most definitely be going back again. What about you have you made a trip to Lisbon? Is there a country you have loved and would like to go back too?
