Trips (Master list)

I’m in the process of migrating and consolidating information from different places where I have visited to this page.  It is a work in progress because it will take me a while.  If the hot link is not active (not in blue), it means it has to be updated yet.

2018 March 

  • Lisbon
    • Bertrand Bookstore — According to Guinness World Records, Bertrand is the world’s oldest operating bookstore 
    • Mercado Da Ribeira — a lively, modern food market for foodies.  I believe the building was once a palace.
    • Cascais — a quick regional train ride from Lisbon.  This seaside town has a number of attractions.  The highlight for me is the the Museu Condes de Castro Guimarães library.
    • Biblioteca Cameos — a local library
    • Street Arts or graffiti — Lisbon is home of some very colourful street arts.
    • A short stroll around the POETS Hostel where I stayed.  
    • National Panatheon in Lisbon is located in a former church that was built in the 17 century.
    • Monastery of São Vicente de Fora — a very short walk from the Pantheon, this majestic monastery atop Alfama is definitely worth the climb to visit.
