“On the edge of Europe“ / Serra do Bouro, Portugal – Day 3, 4, 5

Portugal, Serra do Bouro

It’s almost a week since I moved to Portugal and I explore it’s beauty every day. I feel comfortable and welcome, so I think this was a good decision.

This is ESAD (Escola Superior de Artes e Design) where I will finish my master degree in Fine Arts. It’s big and spacious, ready for new ideas and projects.

Everyday at 9am they bring fresh bread and pastry on the corner of our street, so we enjoy the worm and tasty breakfasts.

Fish market is next to it and today we arrived late but we still “catch” some fish to grill.Processed with VSCOcam Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

And we found a shop which sells some things for the house so we bought some utilities and other things for home. We were also looking to buy some potted herbs and spices, because I like to cook with fresh ingredients, but no one knew where to look for it, so we went around town and searched for some signs and we finally got some information about it and found a garden center on the edge of the city, where we happily discovered everything we needed. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam
