Last Night in Spain, People, and Numbers

SPAIN | Fri, 5 Feb 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [623]

Last Night in Spain I starting writing this in Seville, but it has been difficult for me to finish. I haven't written much about Spain/Andalusia yet because, to be honest, the cities just didn't inspire me as much as Lisbon did. It's not really ... Read more >

Not a manic Monday

PORTUGAL | Tue, 2 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [494]

Today was sort of a blah day. I had plans to go to a few musuems, but the ones I had plans to go to we're closed since they are closed on Mondays. I did go to a transit museum, which was interesting because I am interested in trains, trams and other ... Read more >

I am trying to buy some hashish

PORTUGAL | Sat, 30 May 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [565]

That must be what the message was I was conveying yesterday in Lisbon-that I am trying to buy drugs. At least 8 guys, mostly middle-age to older tried to sell me drugs.  And these guys are persistant. I found that yelling "I DON'T DO DRUGS" at the ... Read more >

Random Acts of Kindness

PORTUGAL | Tue, 6 Jan 2015 | By thetravelingseed | Views [528] | Comments [1]

People never cease to amaze me. Travelers solidarity is one thing, having someone I never saw before hand me their car and say "take it, it will be faster than a taxi" is not something I would expect to happen in Lisbon. It just did. I went to Indian ... Read more >
