The Iconic Lisbon Tram 28

  1. Hi, Beth: I am a little behind in reading your wonderful narratives of your journeys through Portugal. I have, however, saved them all for future reading. It sounds like you two are having a blast discovering your new home and providing us with the interesting details of your latest adventures. So glad you are enjoying your retirement. Take good care and be safe. Love, Aunt Dianna

    1. Thank you so much, Aunt Dianna! What a lovely note. We feel very blessed and lucky to be here and I’m delighted to have the chance to share our experiences with friends and family. I’m so happy to know you enjoy reading them – I love writing them! Take good care. ❤️

  2. Wow, another great post! I have to admit I don’t read EVERY word…or most maybe, but I LOVE the pics – keep them coming! If you started an Instagram travel account it would be VERY popular I’m sure.

      1. I’m teasing… I don’t expect you to read every word. I hope you are still loving your job (and that it isn’t eating you alive). Let’s try to find time for another video chat at some point. Would be great to catch up. In the meantime, I’m happy you are enjoying the pictures. 👍🏻😁

    1. Thanks, John! I’m so happy to know you enjoyed it. We highly recommend the experience. However, no need to take it all the way to the end. Jump off at the Miradouro Portas do Sol and then walk back down to Comercio Square. From there you can walk up Rua Augusta toward Rossio Square. There’s a large metro station there that will take you to anywhere in the city. Something to consider when you are able to come visit. Take care.

  3. I wait until I have time to really read and enjoy your post, and this is another wonderful one. We took #28, but it was very busy and Gary was constantly giving whatever seat he had acquired to someone (the view while standing is not quite as good, btw). Your pictures are really beautiful!

    1. Yours and Gary’s experience is probably more common than the one we had. We never had an issue getting a seat, but that is simply a reflection of no tourists right now. (BTW, there’s absolutely no rush in reading my posts; they’ll be here whenever you have time. I promise.)

  4. Well my friend, it’s been a long time since we’ve been in touch, but this wonderful narrative sounds just like the Beth I knew in high school. I will say, visiting here has never been on my bucket list until now, so thank you for sharing your adventures. I’m not planning on retiring for another year or so, and then traveling the world is what I want to do. Hopefully our paths will cross. Until then stay safe, happy and sharing your wonderful journeys.

Let’s definitely stay in touch. (So happy you are enjoying my blog and that it has enticed you to check out this wonderful country.) Take care!

  5. Motivation post; as much time as Kirk and I have spent in Lisbon (still not enough) we avoided Tram 28 due to crowds but now see why it’s so popular. I’m inspired for us to get ourselves to back Lisbon and hop on Tram 28 before the summer rush. The photos are absolutely stunning!

    1. It was “crowded” only once (and that meant there were two people standing without a seat for about five minutes). Now is the time to go, for sure. Looking forward to getting together again soon.

  7. Loved this and will save it for my (twice postponed already, guess why…) trip to Lisbon with my mum next year. She’s been there for a day and absolutely loved it. And I like the photos, makes me want to visit all these places!

    1. Hi Nicole, thank you for your kind note. I’m delighted you enjoyed this post and it is inspiring you and your Mom to return to Portugal! I’m sure you will have a wonderful time. Also, you’ll be happy to know that Portugal has already vaccinated more than 1/2 the population and expects to reach 70% by the end of September.
