Lisbon: A FADO FAREWELL (7)

Once again (as I did in Barcelona with flamenco previously), I left the Fado Theater Show for my last day in Lisbon. Did know few things about fado, heard some songs, but I was surprised by its outspread in the city. It seemed that every café or restaurant hosted some kind of "fado-night special". And … Continue reading Lisbon: A FADO FAREWELL (7)

Lisabon: ZBOGOM UZ FADO (7)

Kao što sam uradila sa “flamenkom” u Barseloni, učinila sam i ovde – ostavila sam “fado veče” u pozorištu za poslednji dan u Lisabonu. Pre toga sam čula nekoliko pesama, znala sam tek ponešto površno o samoj muzici i isprva sam se iznenadila što je tolika “pomama“ za „fadom“ raširena po čitavom gradu. Činilo se … Continue reading Lisabon: ZBOGOM UZ FADO (7)

Lisbon: STRICT, YET MISCHIEVOUS (6)

Wanted to write the Lisbon story in chronological order as I often do, but it was just impossible. Every plan I had for the particular day – to visit this and that and leave other "this and thats" for tomorrow, just couldn’t "hold water". Because when ever I take that "planed route", something comes up … Continue reading Lisbon: STRICT, YET MISCHIEVOUS (6)

Lisabon: STROG, A NESTAŠAN (6)

Plan mi je bio da i priču iz Lisabona pišem hronološki, kao što obično činim sa putopisima, ali to ovde nije baš bilo moguće. Jer, svaki put kada sam ja sebi ujutru „zacrtala“ rutu, sa sve onim spiskom „šta videti u Lisabonu“, šta ću danas da obiđem, a šta da ostavim za sutra - to … Continue reading Lisabon: STROG, A NESTAŠAN (6)

Lisbon: EVOKING JOSE SARAMAGO (5)

Few days have passed, didn’t even notice it. Had the feeling that I have been walking for days. And actually I have, if you consider that I went around Barcelona lengthwise and crosswise, mainly on foot, for five days before coming to Lisbon. Yet, I have been doing it all over again! Lisbon is also … Continue reading Lisbon: EVOKING JOSE SARAMAGO (5)

Lisabon: SEĆANJE NA SARAMAGA (5)

Nisam ni primetila da je prošlo par dana. A opet, imala sam utisak da hodam danima, što doduše, nije bilo daleko od istine, s obzirom na to da sam Barselonu prešla uzduž i popreko, većinom pešaka, i to pet dana pre nego što sam došla u Lisabon. I to isto radim i dalje! Lisabon je … Continue reading Lisabon: SEĆANJE NA SARAMAGA (5)

Lisbon: UP THE STEEP COBBLED STREETS OF ALFAMA (4)

Streets of the city were so charming. Although steep and narrow, almost always on cobblestone, they often had elegant mosaics made out of dark stone cuts. Mosaics were frequent – what if I tell you that I went into various metro stations just to see the mosaics? They were so vibrant and colorful, genuine artwork … Continue reading Lisbon: UP THE STEEP COBBLED STREETS OF ALFAMA (4)

Lisabon: UZ STRME, KALDRMISANE ULICE ALFAME (4)

Ulice Lisabona su bile tako šarmantne. Iako strme i uske, gotovo uvek u kamenoj kaldrmi, često imaju lep, elegantan mozaik urađen od tamnijih kamenih kocki. Mozaici su ovde, i inače, česti. Šta ako vam kažem da sam ušla u mnoge metro stanice samo da bih videla murale-mozaike? Toliko su bili živi i puni boja. Prava … Continue reading Lisabon: UZ STRME, KALDRMISANE ULICE ALFAME (4)

Lisbon: VIEW OF TAGUS TO WAKE UP TO (3)

One more thing I forgot to mention when it comes to first impressions... It was easy to find the hotel when I arrived to Lisbon, was not far from Praca do Rossio. The building was charming, even though old and somewhat "neglected". Lovely walk (upwards though) towards Largo do Chiado with that thrilling feeling of finally … Continue reading Lisbon: VIEW OF TAGUS TO WAKE UP TO (3)

Lisabon: BUĐENJE UZ POGLED NA TEŽO (3)

Jednu stvar sam zaboravila da pomenem, kad su u pitanju prve impresije. Bilo je lako pronaći hotel kada sam stigla u Lisabon, nije bio mnogo udaljen od Trga Rosio. Zgrade su bile više nego šarmantne, iako stare i, reklo bi se, „zapuštene“. Divna šetnja (iako uzbrdo) prema trgu Largo du Čiadu uz uzbudljiv osećaj da … Continue reading Lisabon: BUĐENJE UZ POGLED NA TEŽO (3)

Lisbon: LEGACY OF WORLD DISCOVERIES (2)

One of the things I was excited about when planning to come to Lisbon was the history of discoveries. Famous explorers took off to the unknown seas and lands, some of them starting their journeys from Portugal and Spain. Liked the mural depicting explorers from Lisbon’s metro station so much that I still cherish the … Continue reading Lisbon: LEGACY OF WORLD DISCOVERIES (2)

Lisabon: ZAOSTAVŠTINA VELIKIH ISTRAŽIVAČA (2)

Jedna od stvari zbog kojih sam bila izuzetno uzbuđena pre nego što sam došla u Lisabon, bila je istorija prekomorskih istraživanja i velikih geografskih otkrića. Čuveni istraživači su kretali put nepoznatih mora i zemalja, a pojedini su započinjali svoja putovanja upravo iz Barselone ili Lisabona. Toliko mi se dopao mural iz jedne od metro stanica … Continue reading Lisabon: ZAOSTAVŠTINA VELIKIH ISTRAŽIVAČA (2)

Lisbon: LOSING YOUR HEAD OVER THE CITY! (1)

Finally reached Lisbon. Wanted to see the city for so long and when have landed, couldn’t stop looking out of the window! Took the bus from the airport, it seemed like a good idea, since there was a stop at Praca do Rossio, and my hotel was not very far from there. Once again, just … Continue reading Lisbon: LOSING YOUR HEAD OVER THE CITY! (1)

Lisabon: KAD IZGUBITE GLAVU ZBOG GRADA! (1)

Konačno sam stigla i u Lisabon! Toliko sam bila nestrpljiva da dođem ovde da sam, kad smo sleteli, sve vreme zverala kroz prozor. Naime, na aerodromu sam sela u autobus, što se ispostavilo kao vrlo praktična ideja. Hotel mi nije bio daleko od stanice na trgu Praca do Rosio. Još jednom, isto kao kada sam … Continue reading Lisabon: KAD IZGUBITE GLAVU ZBOG GRADA! (1)

Hopping to the other side of EUROPE!

Have a cup of tea and enjoy reading about the journey, since we'll be hopping from one side of the Old Continent (where we were during the last series), to the opposite one! Barcelona and Lisbon, here we come! To tell you the truth, wasn’t sure how to write the Barcelona/Lisbon trip experiences of mine, … Continue reading Hopping to the other side of EUROPE!
