    Portugal tour - Albufeira

    October 9 in Portugal

    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

    Albufeira, Portugal

    May 13 in Portugal

    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.Read more

    On to Albufeira Portugal

    May 12 in Portugal

    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

  • Day10

    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

    Faro to Albufeira - 27/31km

    July 29 in Portugal

    5km on a nice promenade in Quarteira - I had some apricots and a mulberry ice cream. Than along and on the beach again - but this time full with tourists - nothing compared with the nice quiet morning walk. One short swim (the water was quite cold - maybe like January in Malta ) and a small snack at one of the beaches.
    At the end the walk become little bit challenging - the sandy beach changed to a rocky one and it wasn't always easy to find a way, especially with the coming high water. At 1600 l arrived at my booked hostel 'wish & stay' in Albufeira - 18e - dormitory for 15p with triple beds! Fortunately I arrived first and could choose one of the lower beds.
    Only 27 km for the first day, so quite a relaxing day.

    I decided that I have enough of the crowded beaches and will go to the north - I would have to take a train back to Tunes anyway, if I follow the coast further. So I booked a room in a pension in São Bartolomeu de Messines - 25e. From there I'll take a train to Lisbon on Tuesday - buying the online ticket (18.5e) wasn't so easy because the pages of Portuguese railways are only in Portuguese (my thanks to google translator).

    Evening in Albufeira

    July 29 in Portugal

    The town is nice, but was overcrowded with tourists. The travel guide says 'it is the tourist capital of the Algarve - this explains it - looking forward to leave :).
    The hostel is directly in the centre with lot of bars and restaurants around, so I am curious how the night will be (maybe I should be more careful by booking?).
    I had a water melon and bought some wine and olives for the evening. The dormitory filled up slowly and there was a couple from Rožnov as well.
    Tomorrow I have 40km to go.

    Ferientag in Albufeira

    September 21, 2016 in Portugal

    Den Tag verbrachten wir nach einem ausgiebigen Frühstück mit dem besichtigen von Albufeira. Da kann man den ganzen Tag durch Straßen und Gässchen schlendern, überall hat es schöne Geschäfte und Restaurants wo man sich dazwischen vom shoppen wieder ausruhen kann😉👍. Auch die verschiedenen Strandabschnitte sind sehr schön und nicht sehr überfüllt . Um 19 Uhr gibt es dann ein Treffen mit unserem Reiseleiter und der Reisegruppe, mal schauen, dazu morgen mehr. Bis dann schönen Abend eure Susanne 😘⛱Read more
