I landed at the airport in Lisbon yesterday, where I was greeting by Stijn and Xavier who had arrived from Amsterdam. We got checked into our AiBnB apartment, which…leaves a lot to be desired, especially for the price. They advertised it as “quirky”, but what I think they meant was “shitty”. I am looking into alternatives, but may just deal with it so I don’t have to move and attempt to get my money back.
Anyway, we hit the town running, leaving the apartment almost immediately to start walking around the city. We grabbed an early dinner and then made our way through the neighborhoods, from Alfama to Bairro Alto, drinking our way around the city, and stopping in for various pastries and coffees. I have to admit to feeling a little queasy by the time we got back to our apartment, but am much better this morning. Today we will wander around exploring what seems to be a super charming city. Stay tuned for photos.
