You can find everything on YouTube. And you often don’t remember how you got there.
Oh well, doesn’t matter.
This was a great documentary – I never watched a documentary about Lisbon for an hour. Usually that’s a list of things you must have seen, or just boring.
But this was different. Sparkling from the start, beautiful pictures, a funny angle.
I hadn’t heard of José Cabral yet, but now I know that he’s world famous in Portugal
And of course I now also have the book at home.
I thought for a moment, when I went to order, that it was at that famous bookstore in Porto – where Harry Potter is filmed. That was a nice thought: a beautiful photo book about Lisbon bought from the most famous bookstore in the world, in Porto! Yes, trust me, that’s nice if you live in Portugal. (no, sorry, my bad – this was a mistake)
It is better not to say too much about a photo album. So I’m going to show you a few pictures below. If you want to hold the book in your hands, there are two options. You book a stay in Termas-da-Azenha – because it’s here in the reception. Or you order it yourself.
Tasty pics, what?
We moved here in 2000 from Rotterdam, Holland to the Termas-da-Azenha, Portugal. A big step, especially with two small children. We are busy to rebuild one of portugals cultural heirlooms: Termas-da-Azenha, an old spa which has been turned into several holiday homes, rooms and campsites, with a https://termas-da-azenha.com/en/recreation/: swimming pool, indoor and outdoor games like pingpong, petanque, a FancyDressingRoom and a small café. You’ll find mosaics and paintings everywhere.
The old bathhouse is going to be a museum, where you can see how things have changed. Since 2018 we call ourselves the first B&B&B in the world – Bed & Breakfast & Bathrobes. You can buy a home-made unique bathrobe/housecoat with us.
