    Lagos 7 oder die Seuche nervt....

    March 18 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Was soll man sagen, alles irgendwie völlig irreal...
    Heute die erste Straße hier gesperrt für Touristen.
    In Lagos Altstadt absoluter Totentanz. Kein Kaffee mehr offen usw.
    Ansonsten machen die Portugiesen einen recht entspannten Eindruck.
    Aber wer weiß wie lange.
    Der Campingplatz hier ist geschlossen für Neuaufnahmen. Wir können bleiben.
    Gestern standen wohl über 100 Womo an der spanischen Grenze bei Badajoz und die Spanier ließen sie nicht durch.
    Erst nach politischen Verhandlungen und ausfüllen eines Formulars dürften sie in der Nacht fahren.
    Angeblich soll jetzt der Transit mit Formular möglich sein, das weiß ich aber nur aus zweiter Hand.
    Deshalb wollen wir noch abwarten bis es definitiv ist, habe keine Lust z.B. in einer französischen Kaserne geparkt zu werden.
    Fahren werden wir, denn besser wird es bestimmt nicht.
    Und trotzdem ist es schön hier.
    Wir würden auch bleiben, aber die Unbeschwertheit und Leichtigkeit ist eh futsch durch den Mist.

    Lagos 3

    March 12 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Heute morgen war es bewölkt. Sind erstmal um 9 Uhr Brot holen gegangen, machen dann erst auf😌
    Dann zu Fuß durch die Altstadt zu einem China Laden, hatte meine Stecker für USB Anschluss zerschossen. Gab's da für 2,50.
    Den obligatorischen Kaffee gab's natürlich auch 🤗
    Nachmittags dann ans Meer gegangen, war aber trotz 21 Grad ungemütlich wegen dem Wind.
    Der Platz hier ist Recht voll geworden, uns stört es bisher nicht da wir keine direkten Nachbarn haben.

    Lagos, Portugal

    August 6 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Unser letzter Stop ist Lagos. Die Fahrt hier runter durch das Landesinnere war super schön und wenn wir mehr Zeit hier hätten, hätten wir sicher ein paar Stopps gemacht. In Lagos sind wir nach langer Suche im Hotel Don Manuel untergekommen. Von dort sind es nur etwa 10 Minuten zu Fuß in die Stadt und auch zu unserem Lieblingsstrand Praia do Canavial. Wir waren aber nicht nur in Lagos sondern haben mehrere Ausflüge gemacht:

    Lagos

    April 24, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 59 °F

    Got up a bit later than planned but still made it to breakfast buffet by 9am. Man, did they have a spread! Hams and cheeses and breads and pastries of all kinds, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, baked beans, yogurts, and on and on. Puts continental breakfast of American chains to shame.

    After breakfast hiked down to Ponta da Piedade with some incredible rock/cove formations. You can take boat rides around to the various coves. Hiked back to the hotel and then hiked about 1/2 mile into town to explore the old town of Lagos. Neat looking little town on the beach but definitely overrun with tourists. Heard a few Americans, some Brits and a lot of Germans. Did some shopping and for a change up, ate at an Indian restaurant in town which was quite good (as most Indian restaurants are). The owner lured us in off the sidewalk (didn't take much luring).

    Sagres

    April 24, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 59 °F

    After lunch, hiked back to the hotel, jumped into the car and headed for Sagres (to the west) where Henry the Navigator had a school some 500 years ago to teach people how to navigate the seas. We bypassed the museum and headed out another 10 miles to a windy little road that took us down to another beautiful beach area which was a surfer's meca. Roamed the beach , took pictures, watched the surfers (waves were not great at this moment) and then headed back towards SaleemaRead more

    Saleema

    April 24, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 59 °F

    Janet had a friend who had been to Saleema, so we took the side road into this little beach town. Pretty beach, surrounded by tall hills. We walked on the beach some and then Yelped it again to find a good restaurant. Found an excellent one, run by a great guy. Sat right on the beach, beautiful early evening. Ate grilled Golden Breem, potatoes, veggies, two glasses of wine, and the standard couvert of olives,bread, and pates. Afterwards, the owner gave us two small glasses of port to warm our innards before we left - yum. Afterwards, it was starting to get cold, so we headed back to Lagos - saw a sign on the at for McDonald's and after lots of twists and turns, actually made it to McDonalds where we confused the kid for sure trying to explain what kind of coffee we wanted - as in damn big coffee!! LOL - none of those thimble shots for this boy! :).

    Oh, did I mention that we stopped at a little convenience store after dinner and bought a bottle of port and vinho verde? Didn't want to take a chance on drying out on this vacation!

    Porto de Mos

    October 31, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Gestern abend bin ich in Lagos angekommen. Es ist richtig sommerlich, T-Shirt- und Rockwetter, sehr schwül, dabei sind es "nur" 20 Grad. Nach den 0 Grad in Deutschland wirkt es richtig tropisch.
    Heute morgen bin ich dann nach Porto de Mos, der Hausstrand von Lagos. Ich glaube, zu Midtide und auflaufend läuft es am besten, bei Ebbe war es winzig, obwohl der Forecast noch mehr verspricht. Mit zunehmender Tide wird es aber besser. Zumindest keine lange Fahrt im Auto. Heute hatte ich mein hier gelagertes 7'6er Board, selbst damit war ich sehr paddelschwach. Das muss noch besser werden die Tage...

    Benegil e Dona Ana

    August 18, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Acordamos 6:30 da manhã com a missão de achar diesel para abastecer o carro, pois essa greve dos caminhoneiros em Portugal estava atrapalhando nossos planos.
    Encontramos já no primeiro posto, mas com limite de 25 litros. Primeira parte da missão concluída, mas agora, sabendo que era possivel achar diesel sem pegar fila as 7 da manhã, resolvemos pular em outros postos até completar o tanque de 80 litros da van. Apos algumas paradas terminamos de abastecer e seguimos para a praia de Benagil, onde o estacionamento só permite entrada de veiculos com ate 2,20m de altura. Tivemos que voltar um pouco e colocar o carro na areira junto com outras vans.
    Chegando à praia reservamos nosso aluguel de caiaque e tomamos um café lá mesmo.
    Pegamos o caiaque as 10hs e remamos em direção às cavernas e, ao chegarmos lá, as ondas nos derrubaram no momento do desembarque. Foi uma bagunca mas ninguém se machucou.
    As cavernas são muito bonitas e tiramos várias fotos, mas como só alugamos o caiaque por 45 minutos saimos rapido e fomos visitar o outro lado, onde existem mais cavernas.
    Na volta tomamos uma ducha na praia para tirar a agua salgada e voltamos para o carro e seguimos para Lagos.
    Achamos um campo de futebol antigo para estacionar relativamente perto sa praia (1 euro) e almocamos ppr la mesmo no carro.
    Dewcemos a pé para a praia Dona Ana, uma sas praias mais bonitas (e cheias) de Portugal. A agua é gelada de doer! Hehe
    Ficamos lá por umas 2 horas e voltamos ao carro e partimos para o norte rumo a Odeceixe.
    Achamks um camping bem bacana em Sao Teotónio e passamos a noite nele, jantando macarrão na van e tomando umas IPAs compradas no mercado, e, pela primeira vez, fez frio! Com minima de 13°C na madrugada!

    Gastos:

    Diesel 85,00
    Cafe 12,00
    Caiaque Benagil 30,00
    Estacionamento 1,00
    Camping 10,00
