The quaint city of Coimbra.
I love exploring new places. This Monday, we crawled out of the house really early to catch the bus to Coimbra. We'd heard about the amazing Bibloteca Joanina (library) in the University of Coimbra and wanted to visit. It truly didn't disappoint.
For €11, we took in 5 locations in the University and climbed the clock tower. I'd like to dwell on the amount of steep slopes and steps we had to climb. MY WORD. It was honestly tiring. I truly apprehended the meaning of cardiovascular exercise after I was done. My heart was pounding (not in a bad way) and I was quite out of breath.
But it was worth it for the views.
A beautiful, beautiful city full of quaint European flair. I'll be back.
