    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!

    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!

    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.Read more

    Albufeira

    March 25, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Mit vielen coolen Eindrücken führte uns unsere Fahrt dann nach Albufeira.
    Wir schlenderten etwas an der Küste entlang, aber hier war es schon sehr auf die Touristen zugeschnitten. Alles modern, eine Rolltreppe zum langen Strand, viele Hotels und teure Restaurants...
    Nicht ganz mein Geschmack, weswegen wir uns dort auch nicht lange aufhielten.

    Aber immerhin konnten wir uns noch schnell eine Luftmatratze kaufen. Wofür wir diese benötigen, wird man die nächsten Tage dann sehen. Es wird aufjedenfall spannend!

    Faro to Albufeira - 27/31km

    July 29, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    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, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    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.
