Hey!, I'm Andreia and I'm interested in animals, books, photography and hiking
My name is Maria, I'm 23 and I'm from Lisbon, Portugal! I'm a biologist and I'm currently working with birds of prey. It's my first time solo traveling, which is a dream I've always had. This experience is a challenge for me, because I don't find it easy to trust people. I'm really looking forward to meeting new people and different cultures. I'm passionate about nature and history. I love reading (especially while drinking a cup of tea). Hope to meet you soon!

I loved Sintra. I stayed there for 2 nights. I started with Quinta then to Pena then to Moorish. I spent the most time at Quinta - it was gorgeous and not crowded when I wentPosted: August 7, 2023
I went in August of last year and thought Pena was gorgeous. I took the first train from Lisbon, got a ride from one of the cart drivers who wait outside of the station, and made it to the top before the tourists. I was 10th in line and it was great. I spent at least an hour wandering around the palace and then another hour on the grounds exploring the gardens. Then walked down to stop at one of the other palaces.Posted: July 25, 2023
I absolutely loved Sintra. I did Quinta da Regaleira first as that was the most important one to me, from there I did the National Palace of Pena (I had a 3 o’clock entrance), the valley of the lakes, and ended with Castle of the Moors. It was a tiring day but I wouldn’t have changed it one bit.Posted: July 16, 2023
