Where I stayed
Definitely not a sophisticated as Spain, but more English spoken and the people are definitely more friendly towards the tourists.
We have walked the city and travelled by the metro and local buses, all very convenient.
I think we are starting to wind down though, had to come home for a rest today after only 4 hours out walking, not like us at all. Gary sound asleep at 5pm.
03/04/2013: Full on day today travelling from one end of the city to the other. Weather this morning wet and windy but lovely blue skies this afternoon. Spent the late arvo in a cafe drinking wine with a lovely gay couple from Santa Fe in USA. Funny, they were psychotherapists specialising in couples therapy. They said we were inspirations!!! ha ha, so we cant be doing too bad.
04/04/2013: Today we had a huge day, we travelled to a picture postcard village call Sintra about one hour from Lisbon. This village has a castle, a palace and a fort. We then travelled by bus to the most western point in Europe. So now we have been to the most southern place and the most western place in Europe. Back at the hostel for free home made soup and a bread roll. Off to Porto tomorrow.
