Weekend in Lisbon

Hey guys~ I went on a weekend trip to Lisbon a week ago and had a blast.  My friend and I booked a flight from London to Lisbon and it was so refreshing to have some girl time and to forget all the stresses in life just for the weekend.  We booked cheap flights through skyscanner (which I used to book cheap flights to Copenhagen as well) and found an amazing and affordable flat in the hart of the city through Airbnb.  As you guys can probably tell, I love traveling and finding affordable flights 😉

Day 1

1

Restaurant Alpendre // R. Augusto Rosa 34, 2715-311, Portugal

2

Our Airbnb host introduced us to this authentic Portugal restaurant which we loved.  The waiter at Restaurant Alpendre was very friendly and funny and the food was amazing.  After stuffing ourselves, we walked around the city to burn off some calories.  Lisbon was surprisingly small and easy to walk around.  Just remember to wear comfortable shoes as the streets are bumpy with lots of steep hills.
