I am in Lisbon now and looking to meet others in my age group traveling around Europe. I am a spry 60-year-old nomad spending a year or so in Europe. Drop me a line if you would like to meet or travel together.
Myself and 4 girlfriends are headed to Portugal beginning of October for 10 days. We want to experience some authentic Portugal, while doing some surf/hiking. We are planning to start with the first few days in Lisbon, explore the city and the surrounding area (Sintra, Cascais, Obidos). We are also hoping to do some surfing (potentially in Peniche?) and then want to spend some time by the seaside and do some kayaking and hiking (Algarves?).
We all really want to go to Madeira, but…
We hole to go to Portugal in about ten days and have no plans. We have three main questions:
Any recommendations for cheap flights for London to Lisbon?
Which neighborhood in Lisbon is a good home base to explore the city? We prefer a non tourist, more residential area with good public transportation.
We would like to find a quiet beach or mountain town to stay for at least a week. We have heard the Algarve is crowded. We need some places to eat, hike, rest and read a book. We like to buy…

Hello! We are two girls planning to go to Madeira this agoust. We would like to know how much is life there, food, hostels and renting a car too. We are travelling on a low budget so we would like first of all see if Madeira can be affordable. More or less could u tell us if it is expensive or not?
Also we would appreciate very much to have some tips about which places to see on a 10 days stay. We love nature, trekking specially! And little villages and authentic places. Thank u so so much!
Mostly new to world travel. Want to "live" in one place for three months, then another country for a chunk of time. Where should I look to live in Portugal for three months, on a simple budget? (I don't know where to start researching.) Would do 2-day trips to other parts of the country. Not interested in "night life." Looking for beauty, peace, simplicity, people, local color.
I'm planning a 12 day trip to Europe in early October. I'll be spending the majority of the time in London and Northern Ireland, but am hoping to spend 4 days in Portugal with three friends. We will be flying to Portugal from either Dublin or Belfast.
We are trying to decide between spending the 4 days in Lisbon or Faro. There are no direct flights to Lisbon from Belfast (the more convenient airport for us to fly out of), but there are direct flights to Faro. Dublin has direct flights…
We're wanting to travel from Oporto across the border to Salamanca in Spain. On the map it looks as if it should be simple, maybe a train via Coimbra, but I've heard stories that it takes an extraordinarily long time and involves very awkward arrival times.
Can anyone recommend an easy way to make this journey? We're open to train, plane or bus.
Many thanks for any advice.
Hi, we're planning to go to portugal this coming september. We are heading first to lisbon for 2 nights then to algarve. I read a lot about different towns in algarve. I'm really lost right now. I liked lagos since it has beautiful beaches. On the other hand, we want to be close to a lively town. We enjoy town walks and nice restaurants. Albufeira seemed an option as well since its a lively town
