I’m starting a new project on this blog and this is the first in the series. I am interviewing friends, colleagues, and others who have moved to Portugal to learn more about what drew them to Lisbon, what they are doing here, as well as the challenges and successes they have had in the city. […]
I am looking to learn how to dance Kizomba. I don’t speak portuguese but I speak A little Spanish (I’m in Colombia now). and I do know all the other Latin dances (Salsa, Bachata, Cha-cha, Merengue). But from watching online videos it seems a bit different.
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?

I currently live in Belem area of Lisbon and we are looking to relocate. Our budget locks us out of some of the city center of Lisboa. What areas 20-30 minutes outside of the city would you look at. I am trying to stick to a 2-bedroom 1000 Euro max.
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 […]
