Exciting news!!!

Hello, dears :)

As most of you already know, a couple of weeks ago I was invited to MiddleMe to explain some easy exercises you can do at your workplace. It seems you liked the topic so we´ve been working on another post, this time, focus on toning the upper back.

It will be published on Wednesday so, stay tuned!

Obrigado, Guimaraes!

Good morning and happy Monday, dears :)

I promised some more pics, and I guess this is the best way to start the week. Take a rest under the tree, because the palace is huge.

Assault to the Castle of Guimaraes

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the Castle of Guimaraes. It was built in the 10th century and reconstructed in the 13th. Don´t worry, I won´t bother you with its history :) Follow the link if you are interested.

As you get close to it, you wonder why would you even try to scale those walls. I mean, I checked the place and this is the weakest point!

The inside is also impressive.

How can we break these magnificent defenses? Sit and wait. Seriously, that´s how sieges started. Stay far enough from the castle but force the citizens  to stay inside until they run out of food. The best of it is that you don´t need to climb :)
