    Ein neuer Morgen

    September 26, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Frühstück auf der Terrasse war uns zu windig. Aber da wir vom Esstisch den gleichen Blick haben, passt das. Hübsches Porzellan aus 🇩🇪 habe eich im Schrank entdeckt.

    Heute geht's weitere Strände abklappern. Gibt ja hier in Albufeira angeblich schon an die 25 🙄Read more

    Exploring Albufeira

    April 6, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ 🌬 16 °C

    Tried the archery competition this morning. Came second with 60 points. Then went into town afterwards. Jumped on the city tour bus, showing the new & old sections of the city which took two hours.
    Arrived back at the hotel in time for the Darts competition. You had to beat the previous person's score or lose a life. Sarah won it.
    The weather today has been mixed sunshine & rain showers.

    Kayaking in Lagos and nightlife in Albua

    September 9, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    .... Later more text..
    It is amazing what is possible to do in only one day. So many impressions.
    Get up early, look for a kayak tour, having breakfast, run to the marina habour to search the kayak company and then: doing one of the most amazing kayak trips I have ever done!
    I I already did tours in Polynesia, New Zealand, Hawaii, France, Sweden.
    This one tops probably all of them!
    After that I went by car one hour to the east, Albufeira, famous for its nightlife.
    And the prediction was right.
    Even drunk people, or better: especially drunk people have dreams, that com straight from.....unconsciousness!
    One wants to be a fit bitch, the other cocktail and party, the other 8 kids (one brought into the relationship already plus 4 own ones).
    Anyway, it was a funny evening and the party crowd loved that welcomed entertainment!

    Lagos - > Albufeira

    July 14, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Nach dem Campingplatz in Lagos erreichten wir eine pure Luxuseinrichtung in Albufeira, sauber, ruhig, mit Swimmingpool (dennoch ohne gutes WLAN und gute Steckdosen...) und leider auch nicht direkt im Zentrum. Aber das machte nichts, denn an Fußmärsche sind wir jetzt allemal gewöhnt.
    Ach, nicht zu vergessen, der Fußmarsch zum Campingplatz führte uns durch eine Gott verlassene Gegend, die als Müllhalde funktionierte, aber eigentlich ein schönes Stückchen Erde ist! (3. Bild, was noch harmlos ist)
    Und außerdem ist Albufeira sehr modern, es führen Rolltreppen und Aufzüge zum und vom Strand!

    Albufeira, Portugal

    May 13, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Jacob and Jodie met up with us in the afternoon, and we went into town. Albufeira used to be a fishing village, and now is a bustling tourist town with beaches, tourist activities, and nightlife. There are lots of restaurants, of course—here we are at a good Chinese restaurant.

    Most of the buildings in town are white, but there are some pastel condos by the marina. The chimneys in the Algarve (Southern coast of Portugal) are made of pottery, unique, and varied.

    The Algarve: from Sagres to Albufeira

    August 20, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    If the beaches (praias) here weren’t that packed with people at this time of the year (come here in spring time!), they, for sure, would be the most beautiful ones in Portugal and worth to stay at for some beach days. However, after some days we preferred going back to the West Coast and its less crowded and wider beaches (even if the water is quite colder).Read more

    On to Albufeira Portugal

    May 12, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Then we went around Seville and crossed the border into Portugal. Upon arriving in Albuferia, the GPS lady couldn’t find our condo and took us all over on some one-track “roads” so we asked someone for directions. Our condo is at a Golf resort and is very nice. We are looking forward to having Jacob and Jodie join us tomorrow!Read more

    Portugal tour - Albufeira

    October 9, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Last stop on my Portuguese tour was the tourist town of Albufeira - basically spent 3 days sunbathing and didn’t get around much although I did take a trip into the old town which was pretty, although I do think it’s become too much of a tourist attraction now which is a shame. The weather was glorious and I was running low on money so I just chilled and recharged my batteries ready for a quick trip to Belfast then getting ready for my best friends wedding. Coincidently Albufeira is where I actually completed my speech for the wedding..... 🎩Read more
