My partner is of Portuguese decent and we decided to have a destination wedding in the Algarve. We did one 2 years ago in Positano Italy and it was magical. Do you know of any wedding planners who can help us. They have to speak english and know Algarve and hopefully lisbon. We don’t want […]
I googled around and I saw there was a British Cemetery. Is this the place famous Englishmen are buried or is this just a name?
Are there places that can repair couches and a table that was damaged in transit. The table is an antique but I am fine with a good woodworker able to correct a few blemishes.
I think my question should be rephrased, are there wealthy people in Lisbon. To me seems like either middle class people or lower middle class with very little wealth. Are there things that rich people do here in Portugal even that are just one step out of reach for common people?
I am a ghost hunter of sorts and we are going hunting for famous authors in Lisbon for our mystery weekend. Do you have a map or know of a map of where some are buried in the big cemetary? Also is there a famous people house tour map?
Dear Blanca Thank you for your information about dogs. I am very pleased to read about this. I have been offered an exciting job opportunity in Portugal and am very keen to bring my working cocker spaniel, Hunter with me. We will also be a family of four with young children (having a baby in […]
Where can I take some free Yoga or Pilates classes in Lisbon. Particularly outside classes in a park or near the water. I use to go to one in Monsanto but the organizer moved back to Berlin. Thanks!
Hey Blanca, Myself and a partner are working on a motorized skateboard startup in Lisboa. We have the manufacturing and design of the boards ready but I trying to come up with a way to fund it to the next level. The boards themselves go about 10-15km per hour, have auto shutoff and we have […]
A few of my ladies will be coming to Lisbon for our stag party and we want to do a Port tasting. I know there are Port houses in Porto but we fly in and out of Lisbon so I assume there must be some their too! I have looked online but I cannot tell […]
Our small indie studio based in Toronto is planning on doing a short film that takes place in one of the old neighborhoods in Lisbon. Preferably the Mouraria or the Alfama. We are looking for a few things and someone suggested asking here because I know Antonio from another NYU Tisch colleague. We are looking […]
My brother and I (twins) moved to Campo Grande area in Lisboa last year and he was diagnosised with low testosterone. I luckily do not show signs. I have looked at the local doctors from our insurance Medis and they have suggested a urologist. I speak no Portuguese and my brother speaks Spanish and some […]
I ended up breaking my eyeglass rod and I wondered if there would be some cheap place to fix it in lisbon, just like I would like to know what are the cheapest stores to buy frames here (as I am considering buying a new glasses )
We live in Lisboa and are going crazy just being in the city. Yes we love Portugal but it’s been getting bored lately. We want to go exploring for a long weekend (4-days). What are some cheap flights to nice places we can go from Portela? Also do you suggest Ryanair? TAP? Thanks
I am looking to have a small garden (Tomatos, Cucumbers, some herbs) but I don’t have an outside area in my apartment. I live in Avenidas Novas. Are there community gardens I can join?
Hi there! You seem quite knowledgable about Lisbon. I’m trying to plan a trip but am overwhelmed and can’t decide which area of town to stay. I like yoga, vintage and thrift store shopping, cool cafes, not super touristy or big name stores or anything like that. I like charming, quaint streets, kind of away […]
Hi Blanca, I love how passionate you are about dogs & their well being, wish there were more people like you in this world. My name is Henry Goldstein, I live in New York & was thinking about visiting Portugal in June, so we would spend a little time in Lisbon before driving off to […]
