Since I have never been to Portugal before I had no clue what to expect. The only thing I did know, was that I couldn’t speak, write, or read a bit of Portuguese.
My first opinion of the city was that it was very busy with lots of people and speeding cars and taxi’s that honked every 5 seconds. However when the group started walking around the different parts of the city, we discovered good places to eat/drink and nice pedestrian shopping areas. The trolleys that drive up and down the hill are charming and fun to ride! It beats the heck out of walking up those steep narrow streets.
So, Lisbon is a great city and I can not wait to go back!!
