[col3_2]Om berre to veker reiser me til Lisboa for å gå i bryllupet til Carrie og Miguel, og eg googlar litt kvar dag, håpar håpar håpar at kroppen held seg i sjakk (eg er jo tross alt ganske gravid både no og da). Me tar det som ein liten babymoon, og eg SIKLAR over alle bilder av fliser og flettearbeid og sardinboksar (sjølv om eg ikkje eingong likar sardiner) og tenkjer at eg skal vera skikkeleg shoppingturist der. Må booka meir bagasje umiddelbart. Men eg lurte på om nokre av dykk har gode tips til restaurantar, område, bygg, butikkar som er fine å sjå og instagramma? 

In just two weeks we are going to Lisbon to attend the wedding of Carrie and Miguel, and I’m googling a little every day, just hoping my body will be ok (I am pretty pregnant and I will be in two weeks too!). I am planning it as a babymoon, and I’m droooooling over all the photos of tiles and braided things and tins of sardines (even though I don’t even like sardines) and my plan is to be a real shopping tourist. Booking more luggage ASAP. I was wondering though, if any of you had tips for restaurants, areas, buildings, shops that are great and instagrammable?[/col3_2]

    Hi Mariell! I’ve read your blog for years – we have such similar taste! but this is the first time that I’m commenting :)
    I went to Lisbon last year with my best friend and that’s exactly what we did – had to book extra luggage. The shopping was simply amazing!!
    If I had to pick my favourite, it would be A Vida Portuguesa, the local design shop of dreams! I stocked up on beautiful toiletries, chocolate and perfume there.
    We really enjoyed the flea market in Alfama (Alfama is instagram heaven if you’re a tile-o-phile like me) and the area is full of cool fado restaurants and colourful rustic buildings. Go up to the Castel San Jorge for the views over the city – sublime.
    If you have a spare day definitely go to Sintra for the incredible palaces.
    There are some lovely vintage shops near the Convento do Carmo (an amazing ruined convent with a museum full of curiosities)
    Santini is a great gelato place in the main shopping area as well, and we liked Cafe Pois in Alfama.
    Lisbon is such an underrated city. Hope you have a blast!

    Hi Mariell, when I lived in Lisbon my favorite spot was the Gulbenkian Park. An amazing place to eat is ‘Café Fabulas’ – very instagrammable, the furniture includes things like sewing machine tables and antique bookcases + the food is really good. And I agree with the comment above regarding the store ‘A Vida Portuguesa’, from what I’ve been seeing you post I’m pretty sure you’ll love it. :)
    I hope you have a great trip and I can’t wait to see your photos & read your impression of the city!

    Ferske “Pastéis de Nata” fra
    Manteigaria Fábrica de Pastéis de Nata! En bitteliten “kafé” hvor du får se hele produksjonen bak store glassvinduer. Så himmelsk gode!

    Det er også en typ “mathall” i nærheten av havna som heter Time Out Mercado da Ribeira. Mye ulik mat under ett og samme tak.

    Ja, også Pharmacia, så klart! En restaurant med gjennomført apotektema. Spiste sjuretters for en brøkdel av norske priser. Tror menyen skiftes ut jevnlig, men maten vi fikk var uten tvil den beste middagen vi hadde mens vi var i byen.

    Det blir sikkert herlig! Jeg har aldri vært der selv, så jeg har dessverre ikke noen gode tips.

    Hei! I just came back from Lisbon. The best thing I ate was cachupa, a Cape Verdean dish, in Tambarina. In general that steet (rua do Poço dos Negros) has small and very cheap restaurants with good food. I also had the best iced coffee, which is very difficult to find in Portugal, in Copenhagen coffee lab ( There are many Instagramable walls in the city. You’ll have an awesome time! :)
