One day I’ll be a tourist in my own city – Lisbon

Last weekend, I had one friend from Hungary coming to Portugal and I couldn’t be happier. I met Dóra this last summer, while working in Greece, and she is one of the most kind persons I have met in my entire life. Having her for a couple of days in my country was a delight.

Jessica, who have met Dóra the year before we (me and Miguel) did, planned the two-day trip around Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais. Dóra arrived at night and Jessica and Rita picked her up at the airport. Dóra’s first adventure was around Bairro Alto, feeling the nightlife of Lisbon. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there.

The next day was spent in Belém and Sintra, then seeing the sunset in Cabo da Roca and having typical portuguese dinner at Jessica’s home. Continue reading

Summer in Halkidiki

In the last posts I’ve mentioned my adventure in Greece, so I think it’s time to talk a little about it.

Then, I got homesick, I missed my family, my dogs, my friends, my country… I didn’t have Internet in my room, so it was difficult to catch up the news, and so on… I can say that the first month was a bit of hell, for me.  I was a little baby crying and complaining about the people that made me feel like shit and all the competition for such stupid things like glasses and cutlery.

One day, I decided to change completely my mind. Continue reading
