    Aveiro

    October 30 in Portugal

    ... unser nächster Stop war eine kleine gemütliche Stadt namens Aveiro, durch einige Känale könnte es mit bisschen mehr Sonne sogar ein wenig Venedig-Flair haben. Leider wurden wir von einem starken Regenguss zum vorzeitigen Mittagessen gezwungen.. Nichts destotrotz gab es einen schöne Spaziergang durch kleine Gassen, in Gotteshäuser, an Bummelläden vorbei.. und wieder viele bunte Kacheln 😉

    Aveiro

    July 20 in Portugal

    Heute verlassen den wunderschönen Campingplatz, hier hat es uns echt super gut gefallen!
    Es geht nach Aveiro - "dem Venedig Portugals". Diese Bezeichnung trifft für uns nicht ganz zu. Es gibt 3 Kanäle, die durch die Stadt verlaufen, auf denen Schiffe fahren die einem das Gefühl geben sollen, dass man in Venedig ist. Die Schiffe und die Kanäle sind aber viel größer als in Venedig. Es ist ein schönes Städtchen zum durchschländern. Am Parkplatz haben wir neben einem alten Feuerwehrauto geparkt, das ebenfalls zum Wohnmobil ausgebaut wurde.
    Daneben sieht der Bussi richtig niedlich aus!

    Aveiro

    September 16 in Portugal

    Woke up and started heading south. We got to Aveiro, a town known as the "Venice of Portugal". I had a fun session on a fat softboard, and we had late lunch in an Italian restaurant with a birthday party to Mauricio, the 8 years old. We went to the guesthouse, and started walking around the city. We met a Belgian couple, and we visited a few bars...

    Aveiro

    May 26 in Portugal

    This town is along the coast in a lagoon formed by the Ria river. There are canals criss-crossing through the town. People can take canal tours on the large, colorful boats that used to be used for harvesting seaweed for fertilizer. There are lots of beautiful Art Nouveau buildings, mosaic sidewalks, and clean pedestrian streets. A town confection we had to try is Ovo Moles made with egg yolks and sugar, originally made in the convents.Read more

    The baroque church is stunning. The organ in the choir loft is available for anyone who wants to play it, and we heard a very talented teenager playing.

    There were so many pieces of religious art in the museum, both Baroque (lots of gold leaf) and Rococco (very colorful). A lot of the pieces came from this convent.

    Museum of Aveiro

    May 26 in Portugal

    This is a religious art museum in a 15th century convent, the Monastery of Jesus. The convent is famous because of St. Joanna, a Portuguese princess. Because she was in the royal line she was never able to take her solemn vows. She rejected marriage three times; instead she lived out a modest life at the convent, and bequeathed her estate to it when she died in 1490. At first she was buried modestly as she requested, but when she was canonized in the 1600s, a inlaid marble tomb was made for her. We also saw the washing room and the refectory where the sisters ate in silence.Read more

    Aveiro

    September 6, 2017 in Portugal

    I was able to visit the church of São Gonçalino the patrón of Aveiro. As far as I know his name does not translate to English. He was born in 1190 and was a priest known for welcoming and marrying people who were living together without being married. Unfortunately I did not get a picture with my phone. The church was built in 1714. I am staying next to the Aveiro Catedral and was able to visit and pray there today too. Very peaceful and pretty. Lots of tourists in this town.Read more

    Coimbra

    September 5, 2017 in Portugal

    Old university town on the side of a hill. It is actually on the river but the albergue is up a very steep hill with slippery cobblestones. I don't know how you could walk if it was wet. It rained all night but the streets were dry by morning. It is picturesque in some places and very old and run down in other places. Coimbra dates back to at least the 400s, and the university was established in 1290.Read more

    Aveiro

    October 30 in Portugal

    Kleinen Zwischenstop in Aveiro auf dem Weg nach Coimbra eingelegt. Kaum ging die Autotür auf und wir hatten ein paar Meter hinter uns gebracht, öffnete sich auch der Himmel und meinte, uns von oben mittels Platzregen sanft benetzen zu müssen😒
    Aber egal, denn Kinnings von der Waterkant kennen kein schlechtes Wetter, ziehen Plan B aus der Tasche und... gehen erst mal essen👍🏼 Zum Mittag gab‘s gute Fischsuppe und in Butter geräucherten Schafs-Ziegen-Käse an Orangenkonfitüre mit Knofi-Brot🤤 Höchst delikate Angelegenheit🙌🏼
    Danach noch fix die x-te Kirche besichtigt, einen verdammt leckeren Baiser gespachtelt und rein ins Auto weiter auf den Weg gemacht.

    Avigo und Costa Nova

    September 29 in Portugal

    Aveiro ist das portugiesische Venedig, eine kleine Stadt mit vielen Kanälen. Vor der Stadt wird Salz gewonnen, das in großen weißen Bergen lagert. Und dann kommen die Strände und kleine Orte wie Costa Nova mit gestreiften Häusern. Überall werden bei Ebbe Muscheln gesammelt.
    Und dann ist da das wilde Meer!
