my final destination on my journey .. the capital of Portugal: `Lisbon´ !! i planned to stay 3 whole days here but in the end this was still not enough for such a beautiful city. but let me start from the beginning: i arrived in `Lisbon´ in the late afternoon of the 6th of November. from the bus terminal i had to make my way through the chaotic metro until i finally arrived in my airbnb. i really loved my accomodation !! the house was located in one of the oldest districts of `Lisbon´ called `Graca´ but not even far away from downtown. the room was super cowzy & lovely furnished & offered a nice view all over the `Tajo´ river !! on my first day in `Lisbon´ i discovered the oldest but most beautiful areas of the city. i joined the `Free Walking Tour´ through the district of `Mouraria´ and `Alfama´ & got to see so many special places !! we walked through small streets full of grafitti & street art tasted the typical portugese drink called `Ginjinha´ (not with gin but with cherry liqueur .. pretty tasty) & had some amazing views all over the city from the famous `Miradores de Lisboa´ !! after this 3 hours city tour i felt pretty hungry & so i had to try some original argentinean empanadas from the `Union Empanadas´. OmG so so good !! then i took one of the famous yellow cable cars to the promenade of `Lisbon´ where i enjoyed the last sunrays & a small `Super Bock´ (the typical portugese beer). the next day started pretty cloudy & rainy .. shopping weather !! after a delicious breakfast in a small café near my airbnb i took the famous cable car nr. 28 (by the way nr. 12 goes almost the same way but with a lot less people !!) towards downtown. in the city center you can find a lot of fancy shops, good traditional bakeries & a lot of tuktuk drivers waiting for their next clients. i strolled through the streets, drank some coffee & visited the `Mirador de Santa Justa´ .. a platform all above the rooftops in the middle of `Lisbon´ .. great view guaranteed !! in the afternoon i went to the `Time Out Market´ in the western part of `Lisbon´ to try some good local food & exactly this is what you get there. the market consists of a huge hall with a lot of food stands long tables & a lot of people .. don`t go there when you are hungry otherwise you will eat it all .. haha !! after trying the best `Pasteis de Nata´ of my entire life i took the metro to upper `Lisbon´ where I visited the fancy grafitti tram nr. 15 called `Calcada da Gloria´. i really love this artsy touch of `Lisbon´ .. these streets full of colorful paintings give this little extra special mood to this city !! anyway i was pretty exhausted after this long day & so i tried to calm down a bit in the beautiful rose garden with a great view all over the sea. this is such a special place which is not very popular with tourists (maybe because they don`t know this place) .. psst it`s called `Mirador de Santa Luzia´. the last but not least day in `Lisbon´ actually was the best one & not only because it was my birthday !! after some delicious birthday pancakes i took a long walk through the `Barrio Alto´ in the western part of `Lisbon´ & enjoyed the sunny weather. i really loved this part of the city .. it seemed so retro to me with all its second hand shops, flower stands & small but crowded cafés. a calm place in a city full of hectic & chaos !! then i got my first tattoo in the studio of `Alla Prima Lisboa´ which i can highly recommend when you think about getting a tattoo in `Lisbon´ .. they did a great job !! after this exciting experience i felt super hungry & so i went to the `LX Factory´ nearby. the `LX Factory´ is an old factory terrain which was redesigned into a trendy area of design shops & food stands .. the perfect place to spend an afternoon !! the last evening in `Lisbon´ consisted of red wine, delicious fish & some `Fado´ music in the streets of `Alfama´. just living the portugese everyday lifestyle .. because it`s all about living the moment. and i really enjoyed every single one in this city .. thank you `Lisbon´ for this amazing time !!
