    Sprung in den Atlantik

    January 2 in Portugal

    Unsere Zeit in Portugal neigt sich dem Ende entgegen. Wieder einmal kommt es uns vor, als wäre die Zeit geflogen. Unsere letzte Wanderung führte uns direkt von Luz an der Küste entlang in Richtung Sagres. Das Wetter zeigte sich noch einmal von der allerbesten Seite – Sonne pur und es war richtig warm!

    Wir hatten bei unserer Ankunft beschlossen, nicht aus Luz wegzufahren, ohne wenigstens einmal im Atlantik gebadet zu haben. Und der Zeitpunkt passte, denn in Portugal ist es Tradition, am Neujahrstag anzubaden. Gut wir waren einen Tag zu spät, aber für uns zählte es trotzdem 💪

    Nach 6 km zu Fuß in Burgau angekommen, ging es also ab an den Strand. Till überlegte nicht lange (damit es keinen Rückzieher gibt 😬), zog seine Badehose an und stürzte sich in die Brandung. Diese hatte kurz zuvor versucht, unsere am Strand abgestellten Schuhe mitzureißen. Wir konnten aber zum Glück noch alle retten. Nach Till war Hanna an der Reihe. Die Wellen hatten einen Sog, den man nicht vernachlässigen sollte! Zuerst war es recht kalt, aber dann ging es. Milla wollte jedoch nicht baden gehen 😜 Nach einer Stärkung ging es mit (nassen) Schuhen wieder zurück nach Luz. Es war wirklich ein sehr schöner Abschluss!

    Furnas

    July 15, 2017 in Portugal

    After checking out from our accomodation, and before heading off to Vila Nova de Milfontes we wanted to check the next town (Figueira) and its beach. Since the beaches aren't signposted in this (non-touristic) town, we had to ask for help too find them. There are 2 beaches, one where you drive and then walk a fair bit, and another where it is possible to drive (Furnas), we choose the latter. It's a fair drive down a largely unsealed road to a dirt carpark with a number of cameras (some of the Beachnick variety), but the beach is large, very pretty and really unspoiled. We liked it.Read more

    Salema, Portugal

    July 12, 2017 in Portugal

    We left Seville at about lunchtime in our Sixt hire car, with over 40 degree temperature. We travelelled for a bit over 3 hours and arrived late afternoon at this still relatively undeveloped part of the Algave. Our BnB (Casa A. Mare) is quaint and close to the beach - it's just a few minutes walk away. After an arrival glass of red on the sundeck, we walked to check out the beach. It's pretty enough but not especially amazing (after our great beaches at home). Annette out her feet in and instantly complained about the cold water. Mmmm...I have to agree; it's much colder than Cadiz! Strangely, restaurant prices here seem to exceed Spanish prices, although Portugal is reputedly cheaper. It still seems to be 'tourist town' notwithstanding the general absence of high rise...although there is a local monstrosity of 5 stories that seems a blight on this small village, plonked in a premier position blocking the views of many (Hotel Residencial)..Read more

    Salema

    July 13, 2017 in Portugal

    Today was a day of R-E-L-A-X-A-T-I-O-N...We both felt we needed one. We spent most of the day on the shaded deck in front of our room, had a siesta etc. At night we had a Cataplana at Restaurant O Lourenco (kindly booked for us by our host Bettina, who recommended this place). Cataplana The Cataplana is traditionally made of copper and shaped like two clamshells hinged at one end and able to be sealed using a clamp on either side of the assembly. Its said to be popular on the Algave to cook seafood dishes.Read more

    Burgau

    August 9, 2017 in Portugal

    Stamattina io e la Gio prolunghiamo il sonno fino alle 9:30: la mattina c'è un'arietta fresca che concilia. La Penka è in terrazza che prende il sole perché perderne anche solo 5 minuti sarebbe uno spreco !
    Raggiungiamo Burgau verso le 11 (perdiamo un po' di tempo alla ricerca di una farmacia): il posto è bellissimo con le sue casette bianche che scendono al mare con un spiaggia bellissima racchiusa fra 2 alte scogliere.
    La sera ritentiamo ancora il ristorantino n.1 di Luz ma anche stasera non c'è speranza: fila fuori dal locale. Decidiamo quindi di scendere a Lagos, ma la situazione non pare molto migliore: difficoltà di parcheggio e locali pieni; alla fine troviamo un locale un po' alla vecchia dove però mangiamo bene ed all'interno del locale: fuori fa freschino (18 gradi).
