Lisbon and blogger José Cabral

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 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.

Each week a little blog about what is happening around us. An easy read. A few minutes in another world. A little about what it going on in Portugal. If you plan your holiday to Portugal, it might be a nice preparation. We have some nice special offers on our site.
