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 […]

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 […]

Willy Brandt

He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1971. Willy Brandt was born Herbert Ernst Karl Frahm on 18 December 1913 in Lübeck (northern Germany) where he became a socialist during his teenage years due to his family background.

Seasons in Madeira

I need to plan what I will visit again or experience new. My project in Madeira ended after 10 months. I arrived in Madeira in late September with the start of a beautiful autumn. The island presented itself with a lot of sun, long days and a water temperature I found highly surprising for October. But despite all this, it was not as tropical as I expected it to be and although Madeira’s nature is impressive I could not find the jungle I dreamt of. During Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the capital Funchal started to glow, gleam and glint in every street due to its overwhelming decoration which made the darkest day of the year was a very shiny […]

Pillory of Funchal

The pillory: the macabre symbol of justice in old Europe and Portugal. On my tours, through the city of Funchal, I often pass the pillory of Funchal and explain its history because it is an important monument to understand the past of the city. The pillory was a device used all over Europe and has its roots in the medieval times. It was either made of a wooden or metal framework erected on a post, with holes for securing the head and hands or, like the pillory of Funchal a stone column formerly used for punishment by public humiliation and often further physical abuse. In Portugal, a pillory is called a Pelourinho and often classified as national monuments since they […]

Wolfgang Herrndorf

Wolfgang Herrndorf is one of the greatest German writers. If I am asked to name the biggest German authors my first answer would definitely be Goethe and Schiller or Guenther Grass and Thomas Mann because they are the big names you hear when there is a conversation about German literature. But to be honest all I know about these authors is that they are great German authors. From all of what their works I just read one book in school because it was mandatory. So I searched on the internet for famous German authors and found out that the most of them are strangers to me and from the generation of my great-grandparents or older. For that reason, I decided […]

King Sebastian of Portugal

Probably one of the most famous kings in Portuguese history. King Sebastian of Portugal (20 January 1554 – 4 August 1578) is very popular amongst us volunteers so that it took me a little discussion so that I am finally the one who writes about “the desired”. But why is he so famous? Was it because he invited the Jesuit order in 1569 to the island of Madeira after a huge French privateer attack in 1566 where French soldiers robbed and plundered the archipelago? Or because he was the youngest king Portugal ever had, who became king with just 3 years because his father Prince John died before he was born, his mother Joanna of Spain returned shortly after his […]
