CONFESSION: I am one of those shameless individuals who goes to IKEA to buy food and not furniture (and I know I’m not the only one – raise ya hands y’all!) But have you guys ever stopped to think how and why a furniture shop sells such good food?! It is beyond me. I remember when I first moved to Germany and hardly knew anyone, I would go to IKEA on the weekends to chill, use their wi-fi and eat good food. It was like living in my huge dream house for free, only on Saturdays..for a couple hours…and then I had to face reality and leave ha!
Lisbon Lisbon! I must admit I had low expectations for you. I don’t know if it was because it you weren’t hyped up like Algarve or if it was because of your love for Cod (which I absolutely hate) – either way, my expectations were very low. But now that I’ve gone for myself, I can tell you is that I WAS WRONG and this city is AMAZING! It’s definitely one of Europe’s “hidden gems” and now I know why everyone is trying to keep it their little secret.
