Lisbon International Meeting 5 May 2018 - All Aboard!


Hello world! :)

We've have been asked several times to do another international Postcrossing meeting in Lisbon and was suggested by foreign Postcrossers to do it around Eurovision Song Festival. The final will be held on the 12th May but some people want to see it at home already.

The dates suggested would be the weekend 5/6 May. The oficial meeting day should be Saturday, the 5th.

The organization for foreign users will be made here but we also have a thread in the PT Community: https://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=116974#pid8642643


Who would be interested in joining us? :)

SUNDAY TRIP


9H45 the most at Campo Grande Metro Station. This is most important! Please be at Campo Grande Metro Station BEFORE 9H45, as we need to walk a bit to the bus, it doesn't leave from right there.

I can't find a proper image of the place, but please be at the door that is right next to the WC of the station. Outside there's a stand/van selling candies, we'll be there, at the entrance of the Metro structure.

Hi phibatola! The weather should be fantastic (probably not that different from Greece), but accessibility-wise, I have to say you'll probably have a easier time in a city like London. Lisbon is known as the city of the seven hills... which means a lot of stairs (or trams+funiculars) and up-and-down cobbled streets.

That said, if you're coming just let us know — I'm sure we can find a way to make this work!

KAS also booked my ticket, so I will be there too :D We are also hoping for two other Norwegian Postcrossers to be joining us. And we will have a non-Postcrosser friend with us, hopefully she will be "converted" if she joins in the fun ;)

Speaking of which: Does anyone have any tips about good hotels in Lisbon? Reasonably priced and centrally located? :)

:bouncing::bouncing::bouncing:

I'm sorry, everyone, we'll have our Christmas meeting next weekend and I can't stay too long at the computer because of a pain in my back but I'll reply your questions asap, until saturday all my time online will be dedicated to this close meeting.

I'm super happy with the good news! :)

Just a quick question: are you thinking about hostels or hotels, with breakfast? Here you can easily find a coffee shop opened from 7 am and some earlier so you can have a room without breakfast, if you wish.

The Norwegian delegation would prefer a hotel, with breakfast and free wifi. :)
