A TRAVELER'S DIARY #1: PORTUGAL - LISBON AND SINTRA


I'm gonna start the new blogging year here with a series of articles from last year.
2017 was a hard, but amazing year. Got a new job, had a lot of work to do, but I also met a lot of new, amazing people, traveled to several countries with the one I love and overall, had an amazing time.
So I kept these pictures for a while, waiting for the perfect time to start this little traveling project called A TRAVELER'S DIARY.

Here are some places you mush visit is you ever go to Portugal:

Time Out Market Lisboa is a food hall located in the Mercado da Ribeira at Cais do Sodre in Lisbon, Portugal. It opened in May 2014, and is the first of several planned food hall ventures for Time Out. The Lisbon market has 35 kiosks selling regional specialities, such as Azeitão sheep's cheese, Alentejo ham, custard tarts from cafe Aloma, sardines, wines and chocolates. Five top chefs have restaurants here. The original fish, fruit and vegetable market stalls occupy the other half of the landmark building
The trams of Lisbon are not only one of the most useful means of transport to get around the city, but also one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions.
Portugal’s capital currently has five different routes and 58 trams, of which 40 are vintage streetcars. The heritage trams are small, nostalgic and an emblematic symbol of Lisbon, making great photos.
Pharmacia is located in the offices of the Portuguese Pharmacy Association (anf) which also hosts the Pharmacy Museum. If you are wondering why a restaurant would locate here, then go there and it will all make sense! This historic building is beautiful and also has a wonderful garden to relax and enjoy a pre or post dinner cocktail in. The restaurant itself is quirky with a pharmacy and medical theme running through it. Water from medicine bottles, soup served in test tubes and the bill presented in a tablet container, but put the quirkiness aside and delve into the culinary experience and you will realise that food is a very serious business in this pharmacy.
Pharmacia is located at the Miradouro de Santa Catarina which offers some of the best views you will find in Lisbon of the Tagus and the April 25th Bridge.
Sintra is a resort town in the foothills of Portugal’s Sintra Mountains, near the capital, Lisbon. A longtime royal sanctuary, its forested terrain is studded with pastel-colored villas and palaces. The Moorish- and Manueline-style Sintra National Palace is distinguished by dramatic twin chimneys and elaborate tilework. The hilltop 19th-century Pena National Palace is known for a whimsical design and sweeping views.
Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca) is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal, continental Europe and the Eurasian land mass. The cape is in the Portuguese municipality of Sintra, near Azóia, in the southwest of the district of Lisbon, forming the westernmost extent of the Serra de Sintra.
