    Algarve I

    July 4 in Portugal

    Und schon sind wir in Portugal!!
    Um die ganze Algarve mit ihren vielen, vielen Buchten zu entdecken, haben wir uns für die nächsten drei Tage einen Roller gemietet. Wir sind an einem Campingplatz in Albufeira, eine Partystadt.
    Heute geht es an die Ost-Algarve. Wir fahren bis nach Faro, an den Praia de Faro, eine kleine Insel auf die man über eine Brücke gelangt. Am Anfang herrscht noch Massentourismus. Als wir aber bis zum Ende der Insel fahren und noch ein Stückchen zu Fuß gehe, haben wir den Strand fast für uns alleine. Ein schöner Sandstrand. Es ist allerdings eher frisch, aufgrund des starken Windes. Danach geht die Abenteuertour los. Da wir möglichst an der Küste fahren wollen, fahren wir durch den Nationalpark. Die Straßen werden immer schlechter, bis es nicht mehr weiter geht. Wir fahren ein Stück zurück und dann weiter am Golfplatz entlang, bis wir wieder auf eine geteerte Straße kommen. Nach einigen weiteren Sandbuchten verändert sich die Landschaft langsam und wir kommen zu roten Klippen, die für die die Algarve bekannt sind. Wir beenden unsere Tour am Praya de Falesia. Die Landschaft ist ein Traum!Read more

    Olhao

    October 7, 2017 in Portugal

    We took a trip to the mainland to in the dinghy, with outboard, it was low tide and we saw lots of different birds. Stork, egrets, curlews spoonbills and lots more we couldn't identify. There was a busy market happening when we got there fruit and veg and regional specialities which appear to be bee related honey, honey cake, pollen, as well as pomegranates. Lots of people shopping chatting or having coffee. We wandered around for a bit and then did some shopping ourselves and had some lunchRead more

    Olhao

    October 7, 2017 in Portugal

    Today we decided to take the dinghy to town, it was a spring low so all the various mud and sand banks were visible as well as lots of birds, we saw a stork, egrets, spoonbills, curlews and lots of different gulls.
    When we got to town we realised it was market day with lots of extra fruit and veg stools. The local produce seems to focused on bees there was wax, honey, honey cake, pollen and liqueur. Also a lot of pomegranates and woven baskets. After a little shopping and wandering around we decided to stay for lunch before heading back to offload the shopping and to go to the beach.Read more

    Faro, Portugal

    January 10, 2017 in Portugal

    Early start today and headed for the airport by 11. Flight was delayed by 45 minutes and when we finally boarded the pilot said that they had had 120km headwinds common in. Ugh I wasn't thrilled to hear that. But...the flight was super smooth, guess we had the tailwind, and we were only 10 minutes late. Stepped off the plane to 17 degrees with warm winds. For those of you who are in the throes of the coldest winter, sorry! Caught my bus got 2 euros and 15 minutes from the airport I was at my hostel. I am one 100 metres from the marina. It is so beautiful. Found an Italian restaurant and had my first pizza in months with a glass of red wine and sat outside. I had three different guys whistle and say hello while I had dinner. I am going to rent a bike and a kayak because it is supposed to be warm for the next while. I can even do my laundry and hang it outside on the upper deck to dry. Can't wait to tour around tomorrow . I have travelled 2100 km so far on my travels, that's almost all the way across Canada.Read more

    Faro around town

    January 11, 2017 in Portugal

    Wow, spectacular! Reminds me a little of Piran but on a grandeur scale. Super clean and lots of authentic culture. Walked around in the beautiful 20 degrees sunshine just in my tshirt. When I got back from my walk I lay on the rooftop soaking up the rays for a bit. Bought a bottle of 2013 Duoro Valley red wine for 2.49 eu and had to get a restaurant next door to open it up for me because someone walked off with the corkscrew at the hostel. I sat up on the rooftop and drank this fabulous red wine. My third bottle if wine since New Year's Eve. Tomorrow I am heading up on the west coast by train to Lagos and will spend three days there, I can catch a bus to Seville Spain from there and it only takes two hours to get there. Could be a day trip. I will see what happens when I get to Lagos. So far I really like Portugal it has a very easy going feel to it and is very friendly and safe.Read more

    Ilha da Culatra near Faro

    October 6, 2017 in Portugal

    After 2 relaxing nights in the marina we are anchoring again, the currents here are far less than at Alvor so shouldn't be any dragging. We are in a nature reserve but there are still lots of other boats anchored and moving around the lagoons. Tomorrow we plan to take dinghy to Olhoa. We have just met Canadians who we kept bumping into in Spanish Rias, they have been in the Lagoon for a week and are loving it.Read more

    Faro

    November 5 in Portugal

    In unserer Zieldestination Faro angekommen war noch Zeit für einen Abendspaziergang entlang der Marina, durch die Gassen der Altstadt und für die Suche nach einem leckeren Essen. Sehr sehenswertes Hafenstädtchen👍🏼 Wir fanden eine sehr urige Taverne, teilweise noch aus dem Jahr 1480 erhalten, bekamen erst mal eine Führung durch‘s Haus vom sichtbar stolzen Eigentümer und dann ein wirklich exorbitant leckeres Abendmahl serviert. In Speck gewickelter Mönchsfisch mit Pfeffer-Senf-Sauce, dazu Dessert und Gläser voll original Sandeman-Portwein🤤 Nicht schlecht Herr Specht, das war sehr gut👍🏼Read more

    Adeus Portugal

    November 6 in Portugal

    Der Surfurlaub ist vorbei. Habe heute morgen eine Laufrunde nach Porto de Mos eingelegt, um mich vom Hausstrand zu verabschieden. Mein Board habe ich bei Extreme Algarve gelassen, ich komme bestimmt wieder. Jetzt geht es mit dem Bus nach Sevilla und dann weiter nach Malaga. Bis bald Portugal!
