The Alluring Coastline ||Lisbon

I recently went on a trip to Lisbon, Portugal with my sister and two other friends during reading week. For all of us, this was our first time in Europe and we were ecstatic to step into this untouched world. Unfortunately, our first impression on Europe was not so great as we arrived on a Sunday morning and to our surprise, nothing was opened…. So on the first day, we took it easy and wandered the streets, getting lost in the city. I definitely suggest bringing a good pair of shoes as there is going to be a lot of walking and the evil of all evils, uphills.

I definitely would recommend staying here as everything was conveniently accessible and the host provided us with great hospitality.

On the second day, we decided to go out of Lisbon and into Cascais, a coastal town nearby via train. I suggest giving yourself a good half a day to explore this area as there is much to see and do! When we first arrived, we just wander the mini streets filled with shops, desserts and restaurants down to the coastal line. ***Warning: If you ever see a restaurant that goes by the name of “Flamingo Cafe” or along the lines of it, DO NOT DINE THERE!! We waited for a good hour and a half for our food while it was not busy. Within that time frame, a good handful of customers that came before us also left before their food even arrived.

I definitely suggest going by the coastal line in means of walking or by this heck of a ride. I believe this cost about 17 €/ hour. Definitely worth it for some good laughs, memories and working out those legs.

IMG_9126IMG_9130 This trip started on the wrong foot however this picturistic coastline definitely wiped whatever first impression we had on Lisbon. The clouds started rolling in but we didn’t want to end our day just like that, we ended up going to Belem for some great food since we still had a good half a day left.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

    • I tried my best trying to find a way for you to unsubscribe from the post but unfortunately, seems like no luck from my end 😦 By any chance when you receive those emails, is there a unsubscription button somewhere?

  3. Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the
    pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but
    I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
