    • Best location to stay

      Ilha de São Miguel May 18, 2016 at 4:20 PM

      Hello! I am interested to know where is best to book a hostel if I am visiting Sao Miguel by myself next week. I will be there for 3 days and want to hike and see as many beautiful, natural sights as I possibly can. I am debating between staying in Ponta Delgada or on the north shore by Ribeira Grande, so any recommendations on which of these towns would be closest to the best sites would be most appreciated. Thanks so much!

    • Warning issued over weekend flooding?

      Algarve May 7, 2016 at 2:57 PM

      Hi, I just read about heavy rains in Southern Portugal (The Portugal’s National Civil Protection Authority (ANPC) said historically vulnerable areas - such as Lisbon, Faro and Albufeira - could flood again because of the amount of rain expected).
      I am travelling to Lisbon and Algarve in a few days – how bad is the flooding? Thanks!

      Can you walk from Monte to the Botanical Gardens?
      Then can you get a cable-car back to Monte before getting another cable-car back to Funchal?

    • Nine Days in Portugal

      Portugal May 9, 2016 at 8:30 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I am asking this for a friend and her family and would really appreciate your advice.

      They will be taking an 11 day vacation in Portugal, including travel days, in early August, and are planing to spend the 9 full days they have in the Lisbon area so they do not have to spend time checking in and out of different hotels. They would like to spend time at beautiful beaches, see Lisbon, Sintra and visit Evora, among other sightseeing.

      Should they stay in or outside Lisbon? If outside, which town should they stay in to make it easier to visit the places they want to see?

      Another option I recommended was to spend a few days in Lisbon and the rest in another town outside the city.

      As well, any other day trips they should consider?

      Thank you so much.

      Mardid to Lisbon

      Lisbon May 14, 2016 at 2:08 AM

      Hi, everyone!

      I am just wondering if you can help...

      We are thinking to go to Lisbon for our holiday but we want to go from Madrid. I know there is a bus, train, and rent a car option beside flying.

      We are keen to do bus/train/ rent a car to have look at both Spain and Portugal. However, we don't speak Spanish or Portuguese so we want to make sure it is easy enough to go around without language problem!

      Is it easy to drive in Spain to Portugal? Or is it safe to go by train/bus?

      Thanks for your help!

      Been driven mad by ALSA website for travel between :Lisbon and Sevilla

      Lisbon May 12, 2016 at 10:28 PM

      The ALSA website is not working for me. To buy a ticket I have to put in my postcode. It rejects this. It asks for "a five figure postcode" - which it also rejects

      I feel the need to speak with them. Can anyone provide me with their phone number??

      Accomodation not far from the center.

      Albufeira May 11, 2016 at 2:42 PM

      I am checking various hotels in Albufeira these days. It is tricky for me to know where to find a hotel which is not far from the center of this town. Any help?

      I' d also like some suggestion for a hotel or guest house there. I can spend around 40 euros per night. Maybe a bit more.


    • Warning Refuge Santa Marta Hostel in Lisbon

      Lisbon 11 hours ago

      I was very excited when i arrived to Lisbon but unfortunately the following frustrating situation happened

      I have made a reservation for 4 nights at hostel: refuge santa marta and I have informed by e-mail that I will be arriving late on 24th May 2016 (around 11 45 pm) due to my 9 hrs flight all the way from Egypt. I arrived on 1:05 am to the hostel and I called the owner by phone because the door was closed he said your room is booked and the reservation is canceled because you were late. I told him I came all the way from Egypt and its my first time in Lisbon and I got lost in addition to the fact that it was raining and i had to move slowly. Now all the money for the whole 4 nights has been withdrawn from my credit card (145 euros) and I was left on the street at 1 am in the morning

      Add to that the manager lied to me that the room is already booked but when i checked at that time i found there is an available room which totally clears his bad intentions in just stealing my money without giving me any service. and he only notified me in the mail to inform about the check in time without mentioning anything about the cancellation.
      He states that i was looking for another place and that's why i didn't come on time, WHY ON EARTH !!! will i be searching for another place to stay at 1.00 am while i know that in case i cancelled my booking all the money will be withdraw-ed from me.

      this ruined my vacation and I just wanted to alert others to avoid such bad experIence

    • Portugal to France by public transportation

      Portugal May 14, 2016 at 2:53 AM

      Hello folks. I am in Lisbon now, with luggage. I would like to see a few more beautiful places - there is certainly a choice - and then go on to the south of France (Montpellier). It is a rather long journey. One thought was go to to Santiago de Compostela - which I want to see - but then it is a very long train journey to Hendaye, arriving after 11 pm. That is difficult. Looking at the map, I could angle up through several interesting towns. Does anyone know of good train service through Spain that could get me to the south of France fast? (Not Barcelona, please) Once I am in the French train system I am fine. Thanks so much, Jean
