Guns & Butter: Lisbon Travel Guide


Lisbon Travel Guide is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.

TPOL’s Guns & Butter Travel Guide is the best way to see as much as you can in as little time as possible. Here’s how it works – A trip is composed of two factors: Labor And Lazy. The opportunity cost (what is given up) for relaxing and being Lazy is gained by being adventurous in the form of Labor and vice versa. The guide includes inefficient activities i.e., tourist traps that should be avoided and aspirational activities that are worth doing but may be impossible to see given the constraints of time and resources.

Oh, oh
I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride
The ride is over. I tried to do as much as I could in Lisbon, but there wasn’t enough time and there wasn’t enough energy after going around the world and back again. Maybe this Travel Guide will be updated in the future but for now, it’s a decent start.

Getting There 

Why not take Ryanair if the price is right? It’s much better than plenty of other discount carriers (see What’s the Worst Discount Carrier?)

Staying Here 

I would skip the Radisson Lisbon.
That’s not downtown I’m looking at.

See This, Don’t Do That 

I did many Tourist Things. Say yes to Barrio Alto view.
Say pass on the train up.
You can make your own decision on where to eat and drink on your rise and descent of the beautiful city.
Great beer.
Comfort food.

Don’t Miss

The best cod I’ve had (see Restaurant Sunflower: Best Seafood Lisbon, Portugal).

Don’t Stop The Party 

What’s a travel guide without a party (see Pop In Pub Crawl: Lisbon, Portugal)?

Get Me Home 

A quick stop in the Priority Pass Lounge and a faster flight on TAP to Madrid, and it was finally time to return to Puerto Rico, flying Iberia of course.

I’ve been thinking too much
Help me
God save me.
