During my years at EMI I was invited to Beastie Boys’ Hello Nasty release party. Of all the capitals in Europe the guys had chosen Lisbon as party venue for all EMI’s music executives.
Why here – I asked Adam Yauch. Back then I ‘didn’t know they were golfing pilgrims…
Because of all the Golf… he said.
Very little street and very little rock ‘n’ roll I thought. Later I found our that Flea, Alice Cooper, Eddie Van Halen and a lot of other of my heroes kill time with these small balls.
Later that year when the Beasties visited Copenhagen he brought me a souvenir – a set of golf balls with the boys portraits printed on.
When we started our Nomad Life we reduced our belongings to an absolute minimum by giving most of our them away. Including all my music rarities. Last time I checked on eBay the 3 Beastie Balls were sold for 300 US on eBay.
A month ago we had a visit from a friend who works in the travel business. He told us that Lisbon is one of the most interesting cities in Europe for Golf Players because of all the golf clubs located within less than an hour’s drive.
Now we have created a Tings Lisbon map of all golf courses in Lisbon’s neighborhood we have easy access to them from our mobiles. We don’t play golf ourselves. But we enjoy the settings: Lots of nature, air, space etc. and have already checked out a few of them..
Feel free to use the map.
