The road less travelled

We explore the backstreets of Lisbon, Copenhagen and Paris, to taste life among the residents of these diverse cities, with an emphasis on combining the hip and the healthy


Christiania is a car-free, self-governing enclave in Copenhagen, 15 minutes from the city centre

For an authentic taste of Lisbon, visit a hole-in-the-wall bar and order a ginjinha, a traditional Portuguese Morello cherry liqueur. One of the best venues to try it is A Ginjinha, situated in a corner of bustling Pedro IV Square (Rossio Square). You can order your drink com or sen – with or without an alcoholsoaked cherry. Some places serve it in a tiny, bitter chocolate cup, and tradition decrees that you must consume the whole thing in one mouthful.

To escape the hustle and bustle, head to the Lisbon Oceanarium, voted the world’s best aquarium by TripAdvisor. Located downtown, just along the riverfront from Oriente metro station, it is home to 16,000 marine creatures from 450 species. There is something profoundly restful about disappearing into this turquoise wonderland.
