    Heute wieder am Meer frei stehen. Das Wetter hat sich an die Vorhersage gehalten und wir hatten eine schöne Fahrt hierher. Kurzer Spaziergang ins Dorf, ein Gläschen Vino tinto und im Supermarkt das notwendige eingekauft. Der Ausblick vom Platz ist einfach toll.Read more

    "Du schmeißt mit Schei...!"

    February 18, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Nachdem wir gestern noch die Pizza unseres Lebens gegessen haben ging es heute wieder auf dem ACT weiter. Wir hatten alles breite Feldwege, Singeltrails, Schafswiesen (hierher stammt der Spruch: Du schmeißt mit Schei...)und sogar sandige Passsagen. Bei uns wenn wir das täten würden uns die Bauern steinigen, hier wird noch freundlich gegrüßt 👐und gewunken👋. Abends sind wir am Strand ⛱in ein Bungalow eingeckeckt.Read more

    Probe-Camino zum Zweiten

    November 13, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Heute gab es einen zweiten Probelauf (diesmal mit Rucksack für Piuma und mich). Es war ein sehr schöner Weg und das Wetter war perfekt für eine kleine Wanderung. Danach ging es weiter nach Porto Covo auf den Camingplatz... dort hat Piuma bereits kleine Freunde gefunden.Read more

    Walking inland

    April 22 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Walking inland the senses become finer. The coast has been dramatic!
    Waves, Cliffs, Wind, roaring Sound.
    The trail now is isolated, quite, gentle.
    I'm hearing the birds, the bees, the stream and the rustling of the leaves . And above all the cicads, symbol of southern countries. The whole air is singing!

    And everywhere abandoned ruins.
    And my fantasy flies!
    Repair an old ruin, keep chickens, plant vegetables, have solar energy and collect rainwater in a cistern. And forget the insanity of our world. And those walking by on the camino can stay the night

    It's happened! an open restaurant, yea!

    April 21 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    At last an open restaurant, with tables service and all!
    For me the first since October 2020!
    Suddenly something banal becomes really important.
    I have now left the department of Odemira into that of Sines and the restaurants are actually open. I'm going to have an orgy!

    On a different note, this morning I met a wonderful couple from Australia, David Bangma and Amelia Gill. Both lived a while in London, then decided to escape the craziness of COVID to Lisbon, then things got crazy in Lisbon and they moved for three months into this region to have the sea nearby for surfing. David is Graphic designer, Amelia works for and ad-agency and both work totally virtually although they miss the social contact of the normal working world. Apparently life in Australia is totally normal. No lock down, no masks no craziness.
    I am Meeting many people here who have fled Germany, France, or Britain to come an live here near the sea while the World goes crazy. Most are working remote. One German Surfer I met is part of a technical call Center for engineering products he takes the calls from the beach. After 17:00 He is on his surf Board. There is a totally new professionell world appearing.

    This morning as I marched, I philosophised about ants. Everywhere I saw endless roads of ants, Perfectly organised straight lines which I followed for tens of meters. Half of them going in one direction, the other half in the other direction. They were not carrying anything, just crawling, sometimes meeting each other for a split second and then moving on. Where were they coming from? Where were they going? What were they doing? And why?

    Ilha do Pessegueiro

    August 18, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Campingplatz mit Blick auf das Meer. Jeder stellt sich hin, wo er möchte. 5 Minuten.mit dem Roller zum ersten Strand,, aber es gibt.noch viel mehr Strände. Schön.

    Da ich den Checkouttermin um 12.00 nur mit Stress geschafft hätte, bleibe ich noch eine Nacht und guck mir heute Nachmittag mal Porto Covo an, bevor es dann morgen weiter nach Sines geht.

    Hier könnte man auch toll auf den Klippen mit Blick aufs Meer stehen, aber die Polizei ist da gerade sehr rigoros...

    Rota Vicenta Stage 1

    November 5, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Porto Covo - Villa Nova de Milfontes

    Lots of sand so quite exhausting.. but every step is worth it =)
    And amazed by this wonderful landscape and alone the whole time (I saw 1 group and 2 persons in 8 hours) you are full of endorphins not noticing the effort needed to run in the sand

    I left my luggage in the Hostel and run this stage forth and back - 30 kilometers - very recommendable ;)

    Well, thats the end of Rota Vincentina!

    April 22 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    So that was it, the end of the Rota Vincentina. No more cliffs, no more sound of the waves, but the birth of something new, an opportunity to discover new parts of Portugal.
    It would be so cool to meet some people to walk and talk with.
    I feel pretty lonesome!
    The longest encounter so far was half an hour .
    I'm going to send this idea into the universe and open myself for what will come now.
    Buon Camino,
    "May the road rise up to meet me"

    Costa do Vizir Camping

    November 29, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    After weeks of wild camping and Aires we decided it was time to settle for a couple if days so booked into a site. We chose wisely. As soon as we arrived check in was very good and when we saw the facilities it got even better. Pitches are nice and open with plenty of space, toilet block is probably the best I've seen anywhere. There's a pool, bar and restaurant all within a few meters of us. The day was spent doing laundry and tidying the motorhome then on the evening we took a walk around Porto Covo. Lots of development going on and some stunning properties. The town is welcoming with some great resturants and bars and we took the opportunity to dine in an Italian. Food was excellent as was the service and very well priced.
    This morning I took a ride out on the bike while Jayne went for a jog around town. Think we have already decided to stay a few more days.
