Being hassled by people trying to sell you drugs on the streets
We planned this long weekend trip with my girlfriend a few weeks after arriving in the Maldives. We flew from the UK at the same time as the storm was going to hit the UK. Fortunately, we left in time before some roads and the ferry was closed due to bad weather. When we arrived it was like 20 degrees in Lisbon, we left our bags and went straight out to explore the city on foot, there are so many properties with so many characters. We mostly tried small local restaurants with fantastic food and local red wine.
From the moment you arrive in Lisbon, the atmosphere in the streets can be felt as friendly and welcoming. You can hear music playing all around all the time¡ we love it!
The people and their hospitality were something that really surprised us.
Local markets, food, and traditional music were some of the biggest attractions on our trip.
