On every occasion I write about how much I love living in Hamburg. The proof is here. Now it’s time to write about the neighborhoods that make this city to the one I love living in so much. I know many of my Hamburger friends will hate me for writing this post as this kind of writings attract more tourist and attention which causes gentrification.
I believe one of the reasons I like Lisbon so much is because of its geographical similarity to Istanbul (my home city). Tagus River like Bosphorus, 25 de Abril Bridge like Bosphorus Bridge, Tram 28 like the nostalgic tram in Beyoglu and last but not least 7 hills these beautiful cities are built on.
Did you know that Lisbon is the oldest city in Western Europe? The Roman and Moor history gave Lisbon not only its unique architecture but also its soul thanks to the magical mix of Western and Eastern lifestyle for centuries.
Madrid, the capital city of Spain, might lack famous landmarks compared to other European capitals but I assure you, Madrid will not disappoint you.
Barcelona is a city where you perfectly can combine a day at beach, an architecture tour from medieval to modern times, a culinary tour from Spanish to Arabic cuisine and an “all night long party”.
