I've been following #Steemfest² for long. Today I finally booked my tickets to Lisbon, so officially I'm going to SF2 in Lisbon!
I've been hesitating if I should go, to be honest. Not because I don't like Steemit, I love it and I'm dedicated to it. Just because the Steemfest2 is from 1 to 5 November but I'm going on my Armenia-Iran trip on 5 Nov. It seems a bit harsh for me to fit Lisbon in between. Plus, the first few days of November are public holidays in Belgium, making it difficult for me to spot any tickets at reasonable price.
Nevertheless, with a few days hard searching, I've found tickets to go to Lisbon! I've written a few posts  . If you are also interested in SF2, and haven't gotten the ticket yet, hope those posts can help you find your tickets to Lisbon too. Otherwise TAP Portugal is offering special 15% discount code for lucky Steemians who fly to SteemFest².
My route: Brussels - Lisbon , Lisbon - Amsterdam
My trip on the Tripit app:
I've been so excited ever since I booked the tickets. I just got to know that some other Steemit friends are also going! I always enjoy talking to you guys on Steemit, now finally I'm going to meet you guys on Steemfest. If you are also going, feel free to let me know, I'm looking forward to meet you guys there.
It's been quite long time since I was in Lisbon. I love this city a lot. Here below I'd like to show my Steemit friends some photos from my trip to Lisbon, in order to motive you all to join the SteemFest² :D
The Monumento aos Combatentes do Ultramar from outside the Museu do Combatente, the military museum. This monument is a remembrance of those who lost their life's in the colonial wars.
The most famous Number 28 Lisbon tram. It rides through Lisbon's hilly streets.
Vasco da Gama Bridge. The bridge is impressive and Padrao dos Descobrimentos, the monument next to it is a tribute to Portuguese explorers.
Steemfest lasts 5 days but Lisbon is worth a longer stay. If you have more time left after Steemfest and seeing the old town, areas near Lisbon are worth checking out as well.
Colorful Pena Palace is a Romanticist castle. It's located in Sintra, not far from Lisbon.
Cabo de Roca, the west point of European mainland. It's easily reachable by train from Lisbon city. Definitely worth a day trip.
Last but not least, food, porto and sangria! I liked Portugese food and drinks! Portuguese people love Sangria a lot, just like the Spanish. It makes sense because they both got great climate for wine and fruits.
Special thanks to those who organised and donated for SF², you guys made it possible for many of us to join it!
