Access Portugal 2013
Preparing for a very exciting trip to Portugal with access students and staff. A great way to keep in touch with family and friends in the UK whilst taking part in a work placement visit in Coimbra, Portugal. Staying in the university town of Coimbra, central Portugal, we hope to see a lot of interesting and new things. Good weather would be a bonus, as I write this in a somewhat sunny but very cold Lancashire. Warm clothes and comfortable walking shoes are advised in this hilly area of Portugal. Coimbra is a university town, whilst we are there the university students will spend the week celebrating the end of their year of study by the cutting of ribbons - a Portuguese tradition, which the students look forward to. I will tell you more about it when we have seen it take place.
