This was my first time in Ottawa. Although I have been in Canada for over eleven years I have never visited the capital. This was an amazing weekend. The thing with short getaways is the limited time I have to see the city. I was able to see some touristic points and downtown Ottawa. Since I am a huge city girl I can’t miss what the center of the city has to offer.
The main purpose of my getaway was to go to the Embassy of Angola to take care of some documentation. As I mentioned on my “About” page I was born in Luanda, Angola. I needed to go to the embassy because my Angolan passport is expired. Having a dual citizenship I like to be on top of things and make sure my documentation is up to date.

The Hype Of Freeport Lisbon Fashion Outlet

LOCATION :
Avenida Euro 2004, 2890-154
Alcochete, Portugal



I know its hard to believe but shopping is the least of my concerns when travelling. There are only two places so far that I go crazy for shopping: US and Canada.
If I end up going shopping while on vacation I end up going to a very hyped mall or an outlet in that region usually highly recommended by other tourists and locals. So that’s how I ended up in Freeport Outlet.
If I buy something while I am away it has to be something special that I would have a hard time finding in Canada.
Although many people told me about Freeport and the great shopping experience I just couldn’t feel the same. I spent most of the time sitting down because I was tired of the long walks due to the structure of the outlet.
I ended up leaving with a full belly since lunch ended up being at a very delicious restaurant in the food court.
Perhaps I went at a time that didn’t have a lot of the latest fashion I tend to gravitate towards. If you are visiting Portugal and end in this area check out the Freeport Outlet to have your own opinion of this hyped outlet.
