Jumping in Belèm (Lisbon’s neighborhood). Belèm is mostly famous for it’s Pastéis de Belém (local version of the Pastéis de Nata), some delicious egg-based tarts.
Sintra is a little village outside Lisbon, facing the Atlantic, and now part of UNESCO World Heritage. At the top of the hill, lies the Pena National Palace. This 19th century palace, offering outstanding views of the surroundings, is what could be a palace out from a Disney movie with many colors, towers and mix between different styles across centuries (from middle age castles, to renaissance palaces and Moorish architecture).
Portugal had been missing on my list for way too long. Hence I was very much looking forward to spending 4 days in Lisbon. And it was truly wonderful!
Lisbon is a gorgeous city. It spreads on 7 hills and overlooks the Tage River and the Atlantic. The weather was just perfect, so was the food and the general relaxed-mood. And, what’s more, we realized that we arrived just for the Festas de Lisboa, also know as the weekend-long sardin BBQ party.
This year again the had the incredible opportunity to have all people from my team spread over Europe to gather for a few days in a Training Event. Around 80 people from 15 different countries come to Frankfurt and I couldn’t miss the chance to make some of them to jump while we were visiting the city after a long day of training and presentations.
