On Monday 12.04.2021 at 3:00 am we started our journey from Weimar to Aveiro. While we were walking to the train station it was snowing.

Due to heavy luggage we had to take a short break on our walk to the train station.

From Weimar, we took the train to Frankfurt, where we boarded our plane to Aveiro at 9:30 am. We had a nice flight with a great view of the open sea.

After around 3 hours we arrived in Porto from where we took the train to Aveiro.

During our train ride we already saw a lot of the impressive portuguese countryside.

Finally arrived in Aveiro we checked in at our AirBnB and explored the city a bit. The city is well known for its canals and its interesting downtown area.

So far we have explored different parts of the city, which is larger than I initially thought. We visited the university of Aveiro (also called UA), the salt fields next to the city, the Ria de Aveiro (a lagoon close by) as well as Barra Beach.
