This bee by Bordalo II is not difficult to find. There are more of these sculptures with various other animals in Lisbon and some are more challenging to find. If you’re a street art lover, I can only recommend that you wander around Lisbon to find more of these beauties.

Cantina restaurant in Lisbon’s LX Factory; Portugal

LX Factory Cantina | Lisbon, Portugal

LX Factory is like a separated small city in Lisbon. It is an old industrial part of the capital which was transformed during the late 90’s to a modern art site. In our day, it has become a paradise for street photographers and store owners who do not like the traditional concepts of commerce and restaurants with a typical style.

Who hasn’t seen any photos of a Lisbon Tram passing through the narrow streets of Alfama? I think it’s one of the popular icons in the capital of Portugal, much like the bikes are for Amsterdam.

The Bica Funicular | Lisbon, Portugal

It is not only the Bica Funicular that makes this location so picturesque. The traditional yellow tram perfectly blends into the joyful homes of the Pombaline downtown of Lisbon, which dates back to 18th century. The view is accompanied by the beautiful turquoise water of the Tagus River down the street. It is definitely one of my favorite places in Lisbon!

Have you ever wondered what freedom means? The East Side Gallery in Berlin always gives a great reminder. In our modern day, it has now become a piece of history that allows visitors to walk by, to remain on the East side and within a moment – pass freely on the West side. I guess my generation is very lucky.
