This trip was a bit of a surprise for me and Linda. We use the Bank Norwegian credit card to get points whenever we pay for things, these points you can spand on the Norwegian Airline and it turned out we had racked up so many points we could fly to Lisbon for free, so off we went to a great city.
We took a night at Connect Hotel at Arlanda as we had an early flight. When we arrived at Lisbon we were struck by its beauty and how warm it was. Lisbon and Portugal is a popular place for retired people to go live and I sure can understand why. It is warm all year around, and as long as the tram works you don’t have to mind the hills of the city too much.
As soon as we arrived at the hotel we found a great little bar overlooking the city, took our wintercoats of and enjoyed a drink in the sun.
Lisbon was a great strolling city if you have the energy as the streets go up and down and up again but it’s all worth it for this quite dirty in a good way city.
Besides enjoying the city with the bars and the great food we took a day trip to Sintra, this smaller town with a great wonderful castle.
The last days we just relaxed and enjoyed some great food and drink, the sun turned to rain but that will never stop us as Lisbon really was a great city and we definitely want to go back.
