A fun day in A Coruña – 10/09/2022

A Coruña

So, last week we had our first trip with ESN. We spent a day in A Coruña, which is a city on the Adriatic coast, north part of Galicia. The city is more than beautiful, I was literally stunned and I wish I could’ve seen more. My leg still hadn’t healed at that point, which made me sit through most of the day.

Before anything, I have to mention the fog  in Galicia. We took a bus to get to A Coruña and at one point I looked outside the window and thought there’s a forest fire nearby. Turns out, it wasn’t. It was just Galician fog mixed with the sunrise (which happens around 9 a.m. here). But the cute little hills we saw after the fog lifted blew my mind. It was literally as if I entered a magical land. Kissed by the morning sun, with the cows out in the pasture and beautiful forests, it was my own version of Arcadia.

We got to A Coruña in what felt like 5 minutes and again I was amazed by the view. I expected A Coruña to be pretty, but I don’t even know how to describe it. I was like a little child, my eyebrows up in my hairline. I really want to go back there to see it all again!

A walk around the city

This is the route we took to get to the Tower of Hercules. It actually took me double the time to get there than the rest of the group because I was limping and that lead to two new problems: muscle soreness and sunburn, because best believe I came there unprepared. We started at the Obelisk, walked the promenade to the Tower of Hercules and finally got to the Riazor beach, where we spent a few hours.

My first time seeing the ocean 🙂

Anyway, it was such a nice walk. And even though my legs were dead, my eyes were fed! Let me show you:

We made a short stop at the Castelo de Santo Antón:

Side note, you need the sunglasses when you go to A Coruña. Can’t go without it. Trust me.

The obvious conclusion is that I am going back there for sure, and this time it will be with no injuries, with sunscreen and a hat!

Okay, thanks, bye!
