Holiday in Lisbon

I had some amazing days in Lisbon this summer much thanks to Luciana and her family that were very kind letting me stay at their house. The 17th of July I landed in Lisbon and had some lovely days filled with sun and warmth until I had to leave again the 26th. While I was in Lisbon I experienced several tourist attraction, a museum and lots of lovely food!

The first day I had some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted – a sorbet from a place called Nannarella. I could not have had a better start on a holiday since I just love ice cream. During the holiday I also tried a lot of great seafood (as well as eel that I did not find as good), more delicious ice cream, the dessert famous tart paséis de Belém and right before I left, I even tried snails!

We went to the Oceanarium, saw the national palace of Sintra, took the Telecabine, Hippotrip and different trams and did a bit of shopping in Vasco da Gama.

The museum I went to see with Luciana was CCB – Centro Cultura de Bélem. A museum for modern art where we saw art by Francis Bacon, Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dalí and many more. There is also plenty of amazing street art, murals and tile art around the city which I find fascinating.

Thank you so much for a great holiday to Luciana and her family!
