... spaces, I have to admit that I somewhat like having a benign presence or two in my life. While I would definitely like to have my room to myself, especially since I seem to attract mosquitos in my Valencian apartment room whenever I leave my window open, I cannot say that I absolutely hate this new inclusion in my daily life. Maybe I’ll even learn to overtly like it; after I’m finished scratching my bug bites of ...
... tram to Santa Christina, the Bairro Alto area known for its night life. Unfortunately we were too early so we went back to the apartment, it was also cold. There is a nice northerly breeze that comes through in the afternoons and cools the city down. On the way we stopped in for dinner just outside the apartment then went to bed. This was my favourite day in Portugal, just felt perfect with everything we did. I think we’re starting to get into a groove.
... a kitchen, small balcony, and sitting area, with a loft upstairs. Katherine and I took the loft, while Hilary and Laura shared the main bedroom, and Tonia slept on the pull out couch (Ikea, which actually pulls out to a double bed size).
Despite our lack of sleep, we freshened up, and headed out to explore the area. We turned up the hill (Lisbon sits on 7 hills) towards the Sť Cathedral, and picked our way up. We were aiming towards the ...
... were considerably reduced, and we took it in turns to wear the super grip shoes so the other one could hang on to them for safety. Still we took are far share of slips and slides in our time there - all a great part of experiencing a new city!

... work details for accommodation possibilities. Once off the bus I saw a huge lift shaft and saw that it had a walkway to an old building so I climbed the hill and walked across.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPrincesa Hotel & Tea Lisbon
As any other place you don't get much value for your money in Lisbon. Rooms are clean. No aircon. Low-budget breakfast. Very frequented by traveling families and Americans was my feeling. We had a misunderstanding about whether the room had been paid (we were demanded advance payment upon arrival). The argments finally costed us more than an hour simply because staff couldn't operate the computer (and used time extensively to complain about it towards us).
