      Hi all!
      Going to study at University of Lisbon later this year, and trying to figure out where to live. Does anyone know the area of Cidade Universitaria? Is it a nice area to live? Or, are there other other neighborhoods that are not far from the university (walking distance or short commute) that are preferable?

      Worried about Albufeira

      Algarve Feb 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      Next month I'll be going to Albufeira with my dad for a week, but we kind of rushed the booking. Having looked at it properly, I'm now worried it won't be suitable with all its nightclubs, bars and English pubs as we want to experience a bit of the Portuguese culture (whilst also enjoying some sun and the beach), not the Portuguese version of Magaluf or Benidorm. I hope I'm wrong though! Please help!

      painting workshops?

      Lisbon Feb 10, 2015 at 4:14 PM

      I am planning a budget trip to Lisbon late august into september. I am an hobby-ist painter and would like to try and join a painting class or workshop for starting painters. Have surfed the net for information, and most workshops I found are expensive and all inclusive vacations. Is there an art school or some kind of center that has like summer classes or introduction classes for locals, and where foreigners would be welcome to join? I paint with water colours and acrylic colors but would appreciate some insight into using other mediums like charcoal, crayons, chalk. Since I do not read portuguese well, it is hard to search effectively.

      Transportation from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela

      Portugal Feb 6, 2015 at 11:51 AM

      Starting to plan my trip to Portugal. At the end of my group trip, I'll want to get from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela. My husband will be there after finishing the Camino.

      I prefer a daytime train ride, if there's a direct one without having to carry my suitcase at a transfer station. I saw a website for a bus, 6.5 hours. That's OK, but I like trains better.

      Porto - Montreal (2 Stops) - 16 year old minor

      Porto Nov 2, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      Hello. I'm flying from Porto to Montreal with 2 stops in Frankfurt and London Heathrow on December 17th. I'm 16 years-old, I have a Portuguese passport and I'm flying all alone! I've never flew alone in a flight with so many stops... the only time I flew alone was from Porto to Paris and it was quite simple (I didn't even need to go through passport control or anything).

      • My flight from Porto to Frankfurt departs at 6AM and arrives at Frankfurt at 09H50 AM (Germany, GMT +1).
      • My second flight, departs from Frankfurt at 11AM and arrives in London at 11H45 AM.
      • My flight which will take me to my final destination departs from London at 1PM and arrives in Montreal at 3H25 PM.

      All the connection flight are made at the same terminal. In Frankfurt it's in Terminal 1 and in London Heathrow it's in Terminal 2 and I only have 1h10-1h15. I'm flying with Lufthansa but London-Montreal is operated by Air Canada. I bought this fligh in a travel agency and I have a Lufthansa frequent flyer card.

      I'm kinda nervous about having to do this, I've been on a flight with stops and connections so I'm a total beginner. Do I have enough time to connect between my flights? Where will I have to show my passport and go through security (since I've been told I don't need to go through customs from Porto to Frankfurt)? What if I lose a connection flight because of a delay or because I didn't have enough time to go through passport control and get to the gate? As a minor I'm quite nervous. Should I warn the flight attendant before I land in case I'm late for the next flight?

      Thanks in advance!
