Hello, Emi here. I hope you are all well. After almost two days of rain finally turned into a beautiful afternoon. The 25th of April is a national holiday in Portugal called “Freedom Day.” Freedom Day commemorates 1974’s Carnation Revolution when the Portuguese people backed a military coup and overthrew the Estado Novo dictatorship that had ruled the country since 1933. The Carnation Revolution got its name from the country’s peaceful transition of power. The soldiers did no

Urban Colours

"Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal, after Lisbon, and the name “Porto” itself influenced the name of the country “Portugal”. Established by the Celts on the mouth of the Douro River, it was occupied by the Romans during the fourth century, transforming it into an influential commercial port and renaming it “Portus Cale”. In 456, it was invaded by Theodoric II, King of the Visigoths, who remained in their power until 716, when it fell under the Moorish Muslim invas

Elements

Everything in nature is made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Knowledge of the five elements allows the yogi to understand the laws of nature and to use yoga to attain greater health, power, knowledge, wisdom and happiness. This arises out of deep intuition of how the universe operates. https://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/purifying-the-five-elements-of-our-being/#:~:text=Everything%20in%20nature%20is%20made,of%20how%20the%20universe%20operates.

Rainy Days

"It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia.

On this place there are rock formations whose largest one is located in the northern area: a massive rock with over 500 meters length." https://www.playocean.net/en/portugal/vila-nova-de-gaia/be

After Lockdown

"Porto’s Botanical Garden is a space where three dimensions converge: recreation, history and botanics. It is not a very big garden – 4 ha to be precise – but it is full of old town charm. The house the property are now runned by the Faculty of Sciences (Porto University) but were formerly owned by the Christ Order and after that by João Salabert.

Communal Washing In Afurada

"Continuing through the village, visitors will stumble upon what could at first be mistaken for a large scale art installation of giant bunting. This is in fact an arrangement of communal washing lines, with everything from socks and trousers to large rugs and quilts, hung out to dry in the heat and sea breeze." http://liveworkmake.weebly.com/ben-blog/-communal-washing-in-afurada #washing #afurada #portugal

Happy Easter!

Magical Gardens in Porto. "Palácio de Cristal’s (Crystal Palace) gardens are the most beautiful gardens in Porto. That’s how I would like to start. I cannot assure, though, that this opinion is not biased for my childhood memories of the walks in these gardens. But, and this I can assure, no one will stay indifferent to their location and harmony." https://localporto.com/crystal-palace-gardens-porto/ #Eastercolors #magicalparks #porto #portugal

Train and food

Hello, Emi here. I hope you are all well. I'm in Porto for a week now. The trip would be one and a half hour drive by car from Coimbra. It happened to be four and a half by train. I added one more hour because I didn't get on my first train. There was a miss understanding. Luckily the next one was scheduled in an hour. I walked a lot around the city in Porto and out to the sea. The weather is nice almost like summer. A couple of days ago I've got food poisoning. Now I'm cooki

Still about Coimbra

On the weekends the Botanical Garden closes early. I didn't even realise the time. When I walked towards the gate it was closed. Some guys were there and they already called the guard. Luckily I wasn't alone and had no time to worry. Then I followed the people and they went to a beautiful place with a swing. I would probably not found this spot by myself. #coimbra #view #portugal #anotherview #coimbra #portugal
