We walked past the hotel initially, as it doesn't have a big sign out of the front. The staff at the service desk were very friendly and helpful. I did get a big shock when I saw my single room at first, as it was extremely basic. There was a small single bed, very narrow room, but an enormous bathroom. The shower was on the floor level, which meant that water escaped under the shower curtain and went all over the tiles on the floor. However, I managed to cope with that. The room was clean and I didn't spend much time in there anyway. It would have been good to have had wifi in the bedrooms, but there are areas downstairs where you can acess it. The hotel is in a great location, with dozens of restaurants just down the street. It is also within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions by the seaport. It is also close to trams, buses and trains. The price was low and did include a basic breakfast of bread, rolls, butter, jams and tea or coffee. It cost me less than 200 euros for 4 nights' accommodation, which is pretty good value.

... We started to walk in the direction we believed was correct, which really just meant downhill at this point, but there were so many turns, after a short while I was unsure which way we were even heading. Without being able to see the water, I didn't even know which way was north. I called "uncle" at this point and we flagged down a cab. I gave him our hotel name and sat back. He spoke little to no English. Nothing looked familiar as we ...
... and asked how to rectify the situation. Nobody really knew as the system is quite complicated and there are different rules for foreign registered vehicles and Portuguese vehicles. Along the road there are cameras that photograph your vehicle and numberplate, as you pass by a camera it registers that vehicle X owes X Euros for travelling on that part of the road.

Lisbon has some very beautiful architecture with a lot of historical significance. We did have rain on and off during the ...
Next stop on our adventure was Sintra, a beautiful village in the hills outside Lisbon. We found our way to Rossio station, and joined the huge line up for tickets! The machines are fairly simple to use, but there are a lot of choices, so people seem to get stumped trying to get what they want. We stood in line for about 20 minutes but finally got there, and on to the next train. This journey takes you out through the ...
