Traveling to Lisbon

As you know, I went on a trip to Lisbon with Cheaptickets for the #ikwilblijven campaign and I think I found a new city for my favorite-city-to-visit! What a cool city it was, with its rich history this city is a play field for heritage lovers as me. But Lisbon also has this raw edge you see in cities as Berlin and Rotterdam. Next to that the Bairro Alto area with the most amazing tapa’s and cocktail bars is the go-to spot whenever you are in Lisbon! Nu ook nog even in het Nederlands 🙂 Zoals jullie weten ben ik samen met Cheaptickets op reis gegaan voor hun #ikwilblijven campagne. Voor deze actie ben ik naar Lissabon gegaan, een stad waar ik zelf nog nooit geweest ben en ik moet toegeven dat het een bijzondere ervaring was. Het is een hele mooie stad met een rijk historie. Echt een must voor al die geschiedenisliefhebbers als ik. Maar tegelijkertijd is de stad ook heel erg underground, een beetje vergelijkbaar met steden als Berlijn en Rotterdam, maar dan met meer karakter!

Try to be there around sunset, I assure you the view will be amazing!

The best pictures of Lisbon are made here I guess 🙂 Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset   When you’re in Alfalma, make sure not to miss out the grilled sardines! It is a famous local recipe and finger licking good! Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset
