moving to Lisbon - work / life?


I am moving to Lisbon in the new year to attend my masters at the universidade catolica portuguesa. I'll be staying in the Pena neighbourhood, most likely.

I was wondering if people had suggestions for nice places to eat, nightlife, community events, things going on in the city for expats / English speakers?

In terms of work, was thinking of looking into yoga studios to teach in English, or possibly hostels. Any thoughts on this matter?

Thanks very much!


Hi Erica !!

Are you settled yet ?
I came back to lisbon last year. I am a local but had been living in san diego for the past few years.
Are you still studying here ?
We can meet for coffee+chat, if you still wanna expand your friends network 😉
