We spent the autumn break in Lisbon, Portugal. We are one of those who prefer to travel during this time of the year as we expect the crowd to be less, flights and accommodations a bit cheaper and that much needed tranquillity in beaches, cities and other touristic spots has more chances of being satisfied.
Before this trip to Lisbon, I have very little knowledge about Portugal. Well, you can expect the most usual, Cristiano Ronaldo and them being the EU football champion during the last EU cup in 2016. Me being from the far east, I know Ferdinand Magellan was a Portuguese who offered his services to the royal families of Spain after being turned away by his own. Thus, our dear Philippines is some sort of a gift to then Spanish King Phillip. (there goes some history).
Food was great, people were so warm.
