At TripGems, Insiders are experienced travel bloggers that can tell you a little bit more about a destination. In this Insider’s View, Nelson Carvalheiro from www.nelsoncarvalheiro.com teases you with some great activities in Lisbon, Portugal and he also happens to be competing in a travel blogging competition.
I dedicate my writing and photography to the soul and sense of place of the locations I visit, the people I meet and the food I taste. This is what my blog is all about, and I have selected my latest top 3 Lisbon travel stories, in order to give you glimpse of how I inspire travel!
Once called the “Ocean Capital of the Western World”, Lisbon has a very interesting array of architectural and cultural influences mixed with a very vibrant Southern European feel. A young generation of artists, cultural entrepreneurs, restaurateurs and business owners are taking back the Roman, Moorish, Medieval and 18th Century city maze, converting it into a boutique little city by the ocean, where locals and visitors can enjoy the best of Portuguese Good Life!
So what are you going to do? I suggest a trip to Lisbon, where the weather is warmer and sunny, people are friendly and the food tastes good. And while you are stockpiling your Vitamin D, sipping some red wine, you may also want to discover a little more of the city and this is where I come in.
Article 1) What to Do in Lisbon? – Within all the layers of history that this city has, a vibrant cultural, music and arts scene takes place through the hands of “out of the box” young artists or Contemporary Portuguese exhibitions which are not to be missed.
Article2) Where and what to Eat and Drink in Lisbon? – Lisbon’s food scene is definitely on the rise, and as fellow dedicated food lover, I will be sure to share my preferred markets, eateries, watering holes and restaurants.
Article 3) Where to Shop in Lisbon? – Brilliant but yet unknown artists and shops make up the most of Lisbon’s bohemian boroughs, where you can grab yourself some original or some vintage objects to take home.
