lisbon graça

Graça is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Lisbon. There are a few viewpoints and, a few months ago, opened this huge garden, with a beautiful view to what used to be Graça’s monastery and, in the background, the Castle of Lisbon

  1. One of the things that I loved the most about Lisbon’s superb natural setting, spread across seven hills facing the Tagus River, were those beautiful terraces offering incredible views 🙂 Aiva

    • thank you so much Aiva 🙂 Lisbon is a special city, just like you mention it has a ‘superb nattural setting’ that is impossible to resist 🙂 even if it’s not easy to live in a country like Portugal, there are some positive factors that make our life less difficult… wishing you and your family a beautiful week 🙂 PedroL

    • hi Carmen, and thank you for your message 🙂

      well, Portugal is a wonderful country, it’s beautiful and, in general, people are friendly. it is safe, the weather is nice and the food is awesome.

      however, it’s not easy at all to live (and survive) here. i had experiences abroad and it’s frustrating to return to my country and get a 700 eur salary and not have enough money to pay my rent (in Lisbon it’s impossible to find a studio / T0 for less than 500eur a month) plus bills plus transportation plus food…

      not to mention that, for example, a regular book in Portugal might cost 16euros, while if i get the spanish edition it is less than 10euros lol of course, it contributes to develop my foreign languages but, even speaking fluently 3 languages besides portuguese, the salary is still not enough…

      I’m aware that are countries and locals in worst conditions, but it is kind of demotivating, as you may imagine 🙂

      have a great week,

      • Wow, I did not know or even think it’s so exp living there, thank you for the info. I was never in Portugal although I want, maybe that day will come 😁

        You take care!

      • you should, I’m really sure you’d have a great time 🙂 just don’t forget to save some money before ahah have a great day Carmen 🙂 PedroL
