Travel is inherently unpredictable. While you can try your best to plan every step of your journey, there will always be unexpected hiccups.

It can be so hard staying healthy on the road when we fall out of the routines we had back on home soil. From beers galore to indulgent food to lazy days to all-nighters and beyond – the temptation is all around us. For a short-term getaway, you’ll survive with minimal damage, but to have longevity in a journey you’ve gotta take care of yourself. Here’s what keeps me going when I’m out exploring for months at a time!
Over 15 years of adventures with Free & Easy has allowed us the opportunity to travel multiple continents, and go off the beaten path and discover some incredible destinations. Our trips have always been longer than the typical trips, because part our philosophy is to allow yourself time to appreciate the amazing things you encounter on these adventures.
Lisbon is nicknamed “A Cidade das Sete Colinas” (The City of Seven Hills). Lucky for us, that means plenty of miradouros, meaning viewpoints. They are great spots to catch a glimpse of the city, especially at sunset. We here at FnEZ are pretty fond of sunsets, wine, and viewpoints.
