After four days in Lisbon, I still love this city! It is a very cool place. The people are nice, it is much cheaper than the UK, the lifestyle is good. There is construction everywhere. It feels like the city is starting to really prosper.
I’m in Lisbon for the first time! Helen, Lydia and I flew in this morning, went to the lovely apartment we are staying in (thanks Olivier and Antonio!), and went out to explore. Lydia’s recommendation was to get an Uber from the airport, as the taxis can rip you off on the fare. This is what we did, and the cost was 12EUR to Principe Real, which was a good price. We walked around the area after we got in, and both Helen and I were blown away. What a great city!
