I'm in LOVE with Lisbon, after having visited for the first time in September, and I would like to share this city with you. Lisbon is amazingly beautiful, charming, with lots to see and explore so be prepared for walking lots. I think November is a great time to visit, as it's not as crowded anymore. Also there is a beautiful harvest festival, called Magusto, where you get to eat chestnuts and drink local wine. Ok, I have to tell you about the vine...I'm not a drinker at all, but in Portugal I just couldn't help myself. They have the best wine in Europe in my opinion. So let's try some together!

Hey I'm Ewelina, Just like yourself I love travelling and experiencing life on a positive frequency. Born in Poland, I have now lived the majority of my live in the UK. I also spent 3 years travelling and living around Mexico, which I treasure until this day. I'm a photographer and yoga teacher. I like to keep things fluid and avoid stagnancy, so travelling is my way of staying happy🙂. I have a passion for people and love talking to strangers on my path. Being in nature, cycling, cinema, food and photography are my pastime activities. Hope to talk to you soon. xx

Accommodation: We will be staying ion a hostel to keep the costs down, because we need the money for food and wine 😁. The rooms will be shared, but if you wanted to upgrade to a single occupancy, please let me know, and I will arrange that. Portugal is very clean and I have a great experience from the hostels over there. Some of them offer breakfast at low costs, too. Please make sure to reach out, I'm here to answer any questions, or simply just to have a chat. xx Ewelina

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-4
Day 1: Arrival in Lisbon The taxi from the airport to city centre is 10 euros, or you can take the cheap shuttle bus, it's a very easy connection. 🔸 Morning: Arrive in Lisbon and check into your accommodation. Take some time to settle in and freshen up, before we go out. 🔸 Afternoon: Head to the historic district of Alfama. Visit the São Jorge Castle for panoramic views of the city. Explore the narrow streets and alleys of Alfama, filled with quaint shops and cafés. Let's take the famous Lisbon Tram 28 route, and enjoy the beauty of the city from its windows (you will love that experience!) 🔸 Evening: Enjoy a traditional Portuguese dinner at a local restaurant. Sample some of the local dishes, such as bacalhau à brás (salted cod) or feijoada (bean stew). I have a list of places to eat prepared, because I'm a big food lover, and Portuguese cuisine is just excellent.


Day 4
Day 2: Tagus River, Belem and Fado Music evening📸📸📸 lots of photo opportunities Morning: 🔹Take a boat trip on the Tagus River. You can choose from several boat tours that offer different perspectives of Lisbon's coastline and landmarks. This is a very beautiful and charming cruise to the other side of Lisbon, reaching Almada, a small neighbourhood, with some great restaurants, so we can either eat at the market or in Almada. Also, there is a viewing tower, not known to many people on that side, so I will take you there. 🔹 Afternoon: We'll make our way to Belem, a historic district of Lisbon, where you find the famous Casa pastéis de Belém shop, where we will taste this most delicious cakes, probably many 😋 🔹 Evening: Return to your accommodation to relax and freshen up. Hopefully we are not too tired after all the excitement, because I want to take you to a traditional taverna with Fado music to experience real Portuguese culture. The music is free, but we'll have to order some food or drink. I think it will a time for some delicious Sangria 😋🍷


Day 4-5
Day 3: Tapas and Wine Tour and Magusto Festival 🔹 Morning: More delicious food today. I have booked us a local guide to take us on a culinary and historical walk, with some tapas and drinks. I hope we can still walk straight after that adventure 😂 🔹 Afternoon: Take some time to relax or explore the city at your own pace. Evening: Celebrate the Magusto Festival, a traditional Portuguese chestnut festival that typically occurs on November 11th. We are lucky to be in town for that date, where local people celebrate this ancient harvest festival. I think it will also be a great photo moment to catch 📸

Sintra National Palace

Day 5
Sintra Day Trip 🔹 Morning: Take a train from Rossio Station to Sintra (about 40 minutes). Visit the colourful Pena Palace and its beautiful gardens. 🔹 Afternoon: Explore the historic town centre of Sintra. Visit Quinta da Regaleira and its enchanting gardens. 🔹 Evening: Return to Lisbon and have dinner at a restaurant of your choice.

National Tile Museum

Day 5
Day 5: 🔹 Departure day. I'm sure you will feel like myself, after my first visit here, and want to stay longer 🙂. 🔹 Depending on our departure times, we can visit the tile museum in the morning, or just have a nice breakfast together, before splitting into our destinations. 🔹 I will give you all the relevant travel info later, but just remember, Lisbon is very accessible, and the public transport is excellent. Also, the taxi and Uber are cheap and very efficient here (comparing to London, they're amazing).
