First few days have passed, and Magdalena and Aleksandra had an opportunity to broaden their knowledge about physiotherapy. Having patients who speak other languages than Polish can be very challenging, but you can always be sure to have your co-workers help. Here, in Portugal people use both new and traditional methods of medicine like acupuncture and Chinese bubble massage. Patients can attend SPA to relax and use kinesitherapy services.
Karolina and Katarzyna are working in SPA that is famous for the beauty services. It is also a good opportunity to learn about beauty treatments. They use different methods, for example Hot stone massage therapy and bamboo tools for massage.
Michal also has his work experience in SPA where massage is one of many types of services offered there. He has a chance to exchange views and knowledge with other co-workers.

Saturday was a day full of emotions and excitements. We got up at 4 am and at 5 am we were ready for our trip to Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal. We arrived at noon ready for visiting. We have seen Jeronimos monastery in Lisbon. This grand religious building was historically associated with the early sailors as explorers, as it was from here that Vasco da Gama spent his last night before his voyage to the Far East. Then we have seen the Belem Tower – second on the UNESCO list. Then we came to Praça do Comércio – the most popular market place. The rest of the day we spent on wandering along the narrow streets of Lisbon. We have also seen Lisbon Poets Market and the 25th April Bridge (25 de Abril Bridge) which is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the left (south) bank of the Tagus river.
In the evening we finally arrived to Fatima. We had a lovely supper there and then we went to the Sanctuary of Fatima and admired the surroundings.
It was a long and exhausting day and we arrived t our hotel at 1am.

After an interesting and actively spent weekend we optimistically started Monday morning at our work placements. We have been here for a week now and we have made friends with colleagues who are very helpful and enthusiastic. Moreover, we enjoy the weather which is amazing for this time of the year. We hope to have a wonderful time during the remining time of the work experience here.
Michal, relaxed and full of energy has stared another day at Studio 387. He was very happy as usual as he had many clients. It will be very difficult to say goodbye to his new co-workers and a beautiful and sunny Portugal.

Also, Aleksandra and Magdalena have lots of things to do. They help their co-workers in rehabilitating patients and in the diagnostic processes and electrotherapy treatments. They also watch carefully they Portuguese co-workers who use acupuncture and hands-on treatment.

While the students are visiting lovely Portugal, the coordinators are also enjoying their stay. All the participants of the project have visited Aveiro, so called Portuguese Venice. We tasted popular local sweet biscuits and then we had a trip by boats in the town canals. We were admiring the architecture and buildings covered in beautiful tiles, called azulejos. After lunch, we had a surprise – a trip to the Atlantic Ocean beaches where we were watching huge waves and sandy beaches. All these beautiful views make us ready to go back home, to our home country.
