Where to go in Portugal? When?
Portugal kept the same borders for more than 800 years and is located in the most Western part of Europe. We were pioneers in globalisation.Portugal attracts many visitors from the northern countries looking for sun. How to get there? Sounds funny but whilst in Lisbon during the last 7 years I’ve helped out tourists every single day on my way to work in Chiado, Lisbon…
The best of Lisbon for a local such as me is for sure the tourists from all over the world. And then the coffee shops, the restaurants.Portuguese food is popular all over the world and has a great reputation amongst Europeans.Besides, where else can you have such a night out such in Lisbon? Just in Spain! Our neighbour country rocks!!
