The tired looking guy next to me is Bruce Pales, CEO of 360cities. Bruce didn't get enough sleep last night. The guy works very hard and sometimes these things happen. We are on our way from Lisbon back to Prague.
Bruce made a miscalculation in our flight reservation, so instead of a 3-hour direct flight, we have a multi-leg journey that would rival the one you might have made on horseback, 400 years ago. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. But only a bit.
Capital, largest, and wealthiest city in Portugal and one of the leading economic centers on the Iberian Peninsula. Although located in the westernmost corner of Europe, the city is firmly embedded in the European Union, hosting a couple of EU agencies. Visit Baixa, the downtown city center and Alfama, the oldest district in the city or just chill out in one of Lisbon’s memorable parks – Parque Florestal de Monsanto, one of Europe’s largest urban parks or Parque Eduardo Vll, off the main drag. Last but not least, Lisbon plays host each September to the Lisbon Gay & Lesbian Film Festival - Queer Lisboa.
