Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara


During our time in Lisbon we stayed in a perfect Airbnb on a quiet street in Bairro Alto meaning we were close to the hustle and bustle of shops, bars and restaurants but it was still perfectly peaceful. One of our favourite things to do was head out to the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint to watch the sunset. There were always little food stalls, places to buy a beer or sangria, live music and of course a stunning view to go along with the atmosphere. 

We loved Pedal a Gosto for their fresh Lemonade where you can add your own mint, sugar, ginger or green tea as to your preference and definitely don't miss Gelato Mu for seriously the best ice cream I have ever tasted. They had different flavours every time we visited but I can highly recommend the fruit flavours, lemon & basil and passion fruit and white chocolate.

To Burger or Not To Burger


I love fish, Rob likes fish and Portugal has a lot of salted cod (or Bacalhau) which is okay but if you fancy a change then luckily in the middle of Lisbon is To.B - To Burger or Not to Burger. Find it on the corner of Rua Capelo in the bustling Chiado neighbourhood with some outdoor seating and a modern industrial feel inside. The menu is pretty simple with a selection of super tasty burgers and a couple of non burger options. Having been back for a second visit we can recommend the To.B, Cool and new healthy burger with rustic fries and sweet potato chips and their homemade lemonade and ice tea. The prices are reasonable, the staff are so friendly and you can even colour in the menu while you wait!

Do you guys have any other burger recommendations in Lisbon?

The Striped Summer Dress

Dress - Fat Face (I believe it's sold out online so check in store) // Flip Flops - Havaianas (lots of cute styles) // Necklace - Forever 21 (similar) // Sunglasses - Quay Australia // Bag - New Look (this one is nicer) // Nail Varnish - Kiko in 336 Electric Blue // Lipstick - MAC in Velvet Teddy

This dress was a lifesaver in sunny, hilly Lisbon. It was nice and cool and floaty, didn't make me sweat too much and it has cheeky pockets which I just love in a dress. Anyone else? I also found it easy to dress up with sandals in the evening and popped my denim jacket over the top when there was a slight wind chill. Rob was very patient with me taking these pictures and the overexposed ones were taken on our favourite view spot in Bairro Alto. I'm going to show you it super soon.

Do you guys have a favourite summer dress?

Time Out Mercado da Ribeira


My first foodie recommendation for Lisbon is the Time Out food market in an old market hall - Mercado da Ribeira. It brings together a careful selection of the cities finest restaurants, bars, cafes and chefs in a sociable setting. It's a cool place with a nice vibe and each stall follows the black and white design with a hint of their own branding, so it is very picture worthy. The whole place is a little more pricey than the rest of Lisbon in general (we got our mains and a drink for just under 15 Euros each) but you are getting the best tasty options.

I went for pad thai and sangria while Rob got some incredible pork from a local chef.

Lisbon Photo Diary

Oh Lisbon, you pretty pretty thing! 

Rob is an amazing boyfriend and took me to this incredible European capital as an early birthday present. It seems to be relatively undiscovered as I couldn't find too many other bloggers that had been so we arrived armed with a couple of recommendations from Carrie and an open mind.

I'm going to put together a city/travel guide for you but in the mean time I thought I would share these pictures from our days wandering on foot around the city. It is so easy to stumble across the most incredible buildings and super pretty streets as every other street is picturesque.

As for the weather, we had the most stunning blue sky every. single. day! Have any of you had the opportunity to visit Lisbon?
