This Saturday, 18th of February, I finally met Miguel Voigt, a School at Sea’s coach that I was emailing with some time ago. He was living in Holland with his girlfriend Esther and they moved to Lisbon, to Bairro Alto, this was really nice for me, because this way, I can meet him personally and not just mail him.
As they wanted to meet Sintra, they decided to come and spend 3 days here. They were staying in Janas’ Echo Village also known as Quinta do Luzio.
We agreed to meet in front the Village’s Palace on Saturday morning. Me, my father, Miguel and Esther.
From there, we went up to the Moors’ Castle, by the Sassetti Village and by Penedo da Amizade (Friendship Wall), we had a great walk, always with very beautiful views. During our walk, Miguel and Esther gave me lots of tips about the best way to raise money for School at Sea. I learnt a lot of things with them that I am already doing.
At the end of our walk, we went to Piriquita to eat the famous Travesseiro, while we were in Piriquita, we talk about lots of things. I learnt that both Miguel and Esther had already been rowers, which was a great coincidence, because my father works in the Portuguese Rowing Federation. They are both taking Portuguese classes, and are looking for work in Lisbon.
It was a really funny and useful walk because I learnt a lot of things about how to raise funds for my project.
They are both really funny and kind persons and it was great to spend a morning with them.
