Under the bridge (Vasco da Gama bridge)

Under the bridge (Vasco da Gama bridge)

Few are the places in Lisbon that are off the tourists’ and even locals’ eye.

It was the end of autumn, the sun was up on the sky, people were jogging, walking their dogs, a few quiet fishermen were sitting on the dock, it was a mix of all the little details to bolster up a perfect first impression. Continue reading

Top 5 most-read blog posts of 2015 – Where Two Go To

Top 5 most-read blog posts of 2015 – Where Two Go To

We’re not going to keep you much, we know you’re busy now with the preparation for the New Year’s Eve and all the cin cin stuff, and we do feel you.

2015 was an incredible year: we went on a three-days Vacanze Romane, we dived into the Turkish delights in Istanbul, then had a bit of Western Asia in Capadoccia, and a taste of Vienna all the way to Rovinj, Croatia. Continue reading

Dreaming of a white Christmas in Romania…

Dreaming of a white Christmas in Romania…

This is our second Noel in Portugal. Although warm weather is our favorite, we can’t deny the fact that we miss snow, snowmen, snowballs, in short, Romania’s white winterland especially during the festive season. Continue reading

Blue all over Ericeira, Portugal

Blue all over Ericeira, Portugal

Ericeira’s history goes way back in time, somewhere only our imagination can reach.

And when we’re lacking imagination we seek inspiration in loco. That is why we come back here over and over again. We can easily place Ericeira in the top of the list of Portuguese villages fronting the ocean, to check at least once in a lifetime. It is hard to believe it doesn’t have the tourist syndrome, the reason why its authenticity is still well-preserved. Continue reading

Santa Nicholas came to Portugal for the first time

Santa Nicholas came to Portugal for the first time

There is this santa before Santa Claus, who goes by the name of Santa Nicholas / Moș Nicolae in Romanian. We celebrate it in Romania on 6th of December.

I’ve grown up with two santas and with the tradition of preparing and waiting for their arrivals. But who is Santa Nicholas and how is he different from Santa Claus? Continue reading

The tradition of canned fish in Portugal

The tradition of canned fish in Portugal

You may know Portugal for its sardines, and especially the canned ones. Despite the common belief, this small country has a large diversity of canned fish, from sardines to horse mackerel, from tuna to anchovy, octopus to eel. Moreover, there’s also a variety of sauce it is preserved in, from plain olive oil to an explosion of unbelievable flavors. Continue reading

An Atlantic summer breeze got lost in November…

We are going to tell you a secret, but to enjoy this secret you must keep it for yourself 🙂.

Not far from Lisbon, where the Tagus river and the Atlantic Ocean meet, stays a magic place with an unspoiled beach. After we had discovered it two weeks ago, we came back again last Sunday. It became our special Sunday retreat. Continue reading
