Now that I have seen probably over 36 hours of non-stop rain, done all the Christmas shopping I needed to do and unwrapped my presents after an early Christmas meal, I am more than ready for a five day vacation in Lisbon with my parents and my boyfriend. Adeus!

And yes, special tips on hidden and cool places that we should not miss are always welcome.

  1. Oh Lissabon, stad van mijn hart! Ben nu eventjes thuis voor de kerstdagen, maar woon er al enkele maanden. Wàt een geweldige stad! Hierzo vind je al mijn posts over Lissabon: Ik heb nog veel meer tips, ik ben er gewoon nog niet aan toe gekomen om mijn blog up te daten met alle leuke dingen die ik daar ontdekt heb, dus je mag me altijd mailen voor tips, dan maak ik je wel een lijstje!

  2. You need to taste pasteis de belem, traditional sweets. A very cool bar in Bairro Alto that you should check is Loucos e Sonhadores, but in general Bairro Alto is a really cool place with a big variety of bars and an awesome night life!

  3. Wow! Are you coming to Portugal (Lisbon)?!
    I’m from Oporto, and I really recommend you to come to Oporto in another oportunity, because its really beautiful!
    In Lisbon, please go to Torre de Belém, and eat “Pasteis de Belém”…And of course, go to Bairro Alto for a cool night and enjoy the great view and the light of Lisbon…;)

    I really like your blog Sabrina! Keep doing your great work!
    Kisses from Portugal!
    Have a merry christmas!

  5. Hi Sabrina!

    I’m following your blog for years (like, since your graduation) and I’m so happy you finally come to Lisbon. I really hope I can finally meet you.

    There are a lot of places you can’t miss here.

    Besides the obvious like walking around in downtown, you must visit Sintra, Cascais and Belém (and taste Pastéis de Belém there) – small cities near to Lisbon. You can get there by tram or train, is really simple. In downtown, make sure you visit MUDE: an art, fashion and design museum.

    To go shopping, I suggest you to go to Avenida da Liberdade and to Rua Castilho – there is were the fanciest stores are. But I know you like to meet some new talents, so make sure you visit Bairro Alto and Chiado and its stores during the day.

    And about the nightlife, you can not miss Bairro Alto and Cais Sodré. Everybody goes there for the beginig of the night. After that, you can always go to Lux, the best club in town.
    When you decide to go to Lux, I suggest you to have dinner in a pizzaria near the club – Casanova – and then go to a bar with a perfect view – Clube Ferroviário. They are both next to Lux, so it will be perfect.

    I really hope you enjoy Lisbon.

    Oh, and I almost forgot: did you find a cool restaurant for your Christmas dinner? Because I remember you were looking for one.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.
