Jardim Botanico Coimbra – 15/15

Jardim Botanico Coimbra (Portugal)

I thought about something new – a picture of the week!! Most of us don’t like Monday mornings… The weekend is over and we need to get up early, get back to work, to school or just back to the normal weekday routine. Even if we love what we are doing sometimes it’s not easy. I’m pretty sure most of you will know what I am talking about. I’m planning to make Mondays just that tiny little bit nicer with posting a nice picture with a short story where it was taken. Easter Monday is unlikely to be the worst Monday for you throughout the year but it just happened to be the Monday for me to start the idea of the picture of the week.

Portugal is my favourite country. I’ve spent many holidays there and even lived  and did voluntary work there for a couple of month.

This picture is taken in the botanical garden in Coimbra in February 2010. There the magnolia blossom a bit earlier than here in the UK.

The botanical garden was founded between 1772-1774 and has a huge park and several green houses with plants from all over the world. Worth visiting

Coimbra is a very old city with the oldest university in Portugal and many traditions. At some point I’ll probably dedicate a post to Coimbra, the botanical garden is just a small part.

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
