Flea market at Mauerpark

There are actually plenty of things, you could do in Germany. But one thing I can really highly recommend is traveling to Berlin and joining the flea market at the so-called park of the wall: “Flohmarkt im Mauerpark“. At that flea market, you can certainly find a lot of clothes, shoes and ancient stuff. But there are also some local modern artists selling there work or drawing and writing right in that moment in front of you. Just around the next corner of the market, you will find the food area. A huge quantity of different food trucks is lined up at this point. There are trucks selling Falafel, Sushi, KImchi, Kebab, Burger, Fish, Sausages, Pizza…practically everything you can imagine. […]

Sailing in Mazurian Lakes

Visit the sailing capital of Poland and commence your journey into the wild on board of a chartered sailing boat, motorboat or yacht. A one- or two-day lasting trip is virtually for everyone, regardless of their age or sailing skills. Breath in the fresh air and sightsee the historic towns of Masuria! With a spare day or two while in Poland, it is a great opportunity for many to combine their interest in history with an active way of spending their time. Upon arrival to Masuria (the Eastern- and Northernmost region of Poland, reachable by high-speed railway services), you may either hire a boat directly (after having completed a few-hour lasting training session) or have your cruise operated by a […]

Prolongamento do ano lectivo no ES

Politécnico já estavam a trabalhar num cenário de prolongamento da suspensão das aulas presenciais até ao final do semestre. Próximo ano lectivo pode começar mais tarde para permitir terminar o actual sem sobressaltos. A suspensão das actividades presenciais nos estabelecimentos de ensino superior pode prolongar-se para além das férias da Páscoa, o que implicará mexidas no calendário académico do ensino superior.

Summertime in the alps

Let’s go on a virtual journey through Austria: by train, we can travel to some of the most beautiful places!  Starting our journey in the capital Vienna. This city has a lot to offer, not only in summer but all throughout the year. Strolling through the “1st district” of the city, along with the beautiful buildings and relaxing in one of the several parks. The following days we visit the Schönbrunn Palace with its garden and the zoo, the Prater, a funfare, and some museums, to then continue our trip westward.

Dia do estudante

Quase seis décadas depois da crise académica de 1962, o Movimento Estudantil continua activo e não baixa os braços perante as mudanças drásticas impostas pelo surto de covid-19. Nesta terça-feira, 24 de Março, assinala-se o Dia Nacional do Estudante. Todos os anos, diversas associações de estudantes e federações académicas promovem eventos nas faculdades ou saem à rua para assinalar a data que marcou o Movimento Estudantil, durante a crise académica de 1962. Por todo o país estavam previstas actividades que, devido às medidas impostas para combater o novo coronavírus, foram canceladas ou assumiram outros formatos. É o caso do movimento conjunto de seis faculdades de Lisboa e do Porto, cujo lema é “para além de liberdade para pensar, queremos liberdade […]

Summer in France

Let me talk about Bretagne. This region is located in the north-west part of France, just in front of the Atlantic Ocean and the Manche. It is basically the only place in France where the summer heat is still bearable nowadays. The landscapes are amazing: promenade along the sea, feet on the sand but also the countryside with beautiful vegetation and forests. You can also discover the typical houses in this region, all-white or in stones with slates roof. If you like history and magic, I advise you to walk in the Brocéliande forest. Every kid in France knows it thanks to the stories about King Arthur, the knights of the round table and Merlin the enchanter. If you prefer […]

COVID-19 e o ambiente

O abrandamento da produção, das deslocações e do consumo provocado pelas medidas para combater a pandemia do novo coronavírus trouxe boas notícias para a crise ambiental, com uma diminuição da poluição e das emissões de gases com efeito de estuda. Mas teme-se que, passado o momento crítico que vivemos, pouco fique destas melhorias. Se não viu as imagens de satélite que mostram a redução de gases poluentes sobre a China ou a Itália, já deve ter visto pelo menos as fotografias surpreendentes dos cardumes de peixes nos canais de águas límpidas de Veneza. A travagem a fundo da actividade económica, das viagens aéreas e da vida em geral de milhões de pessoas afectadas pela pandemia do novo coronavírus SARS-CoV-2 em […]

A Summer in Iceland

If you find yourself in Iceland during the summer months, you will be spoilt for choice as there are plenty of activities available, helped by the extended daylight hours. After the long, dark nights of the winter, Icelanders look forward to the summer and make the most of the opportunity to spend time with family and friends in the great outdoors.  There are no shortage of festivities for you to take part in during this time of year. Independence Day, on 17th of June, is a nationwide celebration. A 17th June party is also around the time when Icelanders might dust off their old barbecues, and serve up some of their famous hot dogs, SS Pylsur.  Mid- to late-June is […]

Summer in Liechtenstein

Although Liechtenstein is tiny, on its 160 square kilometers area there are still a lot of activities you can do in summer. One of the most prominent and popular activities in summer is to go hiking in Malbun. Malbun is part of the municipality of Triesenberg, a town the lies above the Rhein-Valley and above most of the other towns of Liechtenstein. Malbun lies at about 1600 meters above the sea.

Nature Festival on Madeira

Pros and cons of visiting Madeira in autumn In the end of September I had a few friends coming to Madeira from Porto. Naturally, I wanted to show them some of the most iconic views on the island, so I took them to places like Ponta de São Lourenço, Vereda do Larano, Pico do Areeiro. It was quite a shock to see all of them (places, not friends) completely burnt by summer sun, yellow and grey where just a few months ago, in early spring, everything was intensely green and flourishing. Later on I even compared my photos from April and late September and the difference in color is unbelievable. There can be no doubt about it – Madeira is […]

Claustrophobia

I never thought that being and living on the island can be so different from living in the mainland in a bigger agglomeration. But actually it differs a lot and I felt it soon after I came here. This strange feeling of being locked and kept in a small island so that you cannot escape from it so easily in case of any human/natural disaster remain in my subconscious. Everything has limits here and sometimes it can make you feel anxious. I wonder if some people has that inborn will of constantly moving from place to place, just getting into the car or taking a plane and travelling at least for a bit or if it is just a feature […]

Tourism (seen as a tourist)

I am starting my third month in this project, and I have noticed a lot of differences between my home country and Funchal (obviously). The biggest and most noticeable one is perhaps not that this is a Portuguese island, but that it is a touristic island. Tourism is quite deeply entwined in Funchal, which results in some small but noticeable differences. For example, I must have seen over a hundred cafés and restaurants but I have only seen two supermarkets which are at 200 meters apart from each other. You can also go anywhere by bus, but the price is the same no matter how far you want to go. Banana’s and fruits are about as expensive as in my […]

One world

I´m happy that I am able to see now how I was thinking and how other people might be thinking. When I was a young girl, people used to tell me that Holland is one of the best countries to be born in. They told me that I lived in a prosperous country, in which everything is well organized and people are happy. Most of the time, we watched Dutch TV, heard our own language and learnt about our own history. In some kind of way this made me thinking that we were the only ones in this world, or at least the only good ones. And even though I learnt about it at geography and saw it on TV, […]

Safety on the trail

Stay safe while hiking on Madeira! Having done hundreds of kilometers of Madeiran levadas and veredas, I feel like iI’m in a good position to write a few words about a very important topic – safety on the trail. Divided into four categories, I present you some safety rules to keep in mind. Before you go for a hike Remember that the weather on Madeira changes often and fast – therefore you should not only check the most recent weather forecast for the part of the island you plan to explore, but also have a look at the online cameras spread all over Madeira (google “madeira webcams”) to see what the situation looks like at the moment. Due to the […]

Living in a island

Living in a island is wonderful, you have the sea near of your house and a nice weather almost all the year But sometimes it’s not so good … A few days ago I was planning a holiday’s trip, the tickets were very cheap (round-trip from Madrid to France 15€ ) but the problem was that going out of the island costed 300€ the same round-trip, so I felt caught and frustrated. Some days before it I was talking with two friends and one of them (from Lisbon) asked me, wouldn’t you live here for the whole life? And I answered of course not. Well, I recognize it leaving here is quite nice, the people is wonderful, also the food, […]
