Yesterday we went to the LX factory in Lisbon which I can truly recommend to anyone who likes concept stores and beautiful food places.
A little outside the city centre of Lisbon, the LX Factory is a collection of small boutique shops, studios, and little restaurants and deli’s. It is a lovely place to stroll around, have a bite and enjoy a nice and quiet afternoon. Perfect for an afternoon cocktail with friends.
day 3: a place you’ve traveled to
Last year my boyfriend and I traveled to Indonesia. We went on a 4 week holiday to Java and Bali. Especially Java was very intense and hectic, but very beautiful. Things started off very hectic as we arrived in Jakarta (with a slight hangover from a night clubbing in Singapore) and we found out one of our bags was open on the conveyor belt. We had just passed the sign that drug trafficking will lead to death penalty, and panicked as we did not know what to do next. All of a sudden there was this taxi driver, who offered us a ride, got our bags off the belt, guided us past security, and afterwards charged us 30 euros for a ride that should have been max. 2 euro. Welcome to Jakarta.
Jakarta was way too hectic for us, it was very big, polluted and poor. We left after three days, and headed for countryside Java, which was absolutely breath taking. in two weeks we went to Yogyakarta, Borobudur temple, Plaosan temple, Prambanan temple, Mount Bromo, Ijen crater. Afterwards on Bali we took some time to relax and for the rest of the holiday stayed in Lovina, on the Gili Islands and in Candidasa. Below some pictures to illustrate.
