    I did have to taunt him ..

    September 23, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Ok , my sins my not be minor , but no need to rub it in by giving me a flat this morning .. taking the Piss or what !

    For the record Paddy didn’t snore last night , but he did flick the remote on at some stage and scared the bejasus out of me .. he then woke as I tried to pry it from his hand

    Me in boxers , Anita I’ll pay for the therapy ..

    Magic spin, Komoot challenged us to go off-road
    We took the challenge once .. we were a bit nervous .. but Tis all good , Pdiddy wasn’t happy , went to Google , may have captured the pic ☺️

    Coastal route was amazing , sea sun and surfers . In my mtb gear I fitted right in , casual nods , virtual high fives ..(none really ) Paddy looked like an elite athlete so stuck out ..

    Lunch was great , we declined the 10% down gradient after cos we knew we’d have to come back up as would our lunch

    It was v hot and I may have got a tad burnt both by Paddy on the road and the sun .. long sleeves for me tomorrow , 🥵

    Savage climb to our hotel , my garmin died at 87k like me really , at the start of the hills .. there were great descents too but you know what goes down must come up , talking cycling here potty minds 🙄

    Dinner was fab as were the deserts , even Paddy had one !!

    So sore and stuffed . Watching hits of 1984 on the TV , hard to believe George Michael was gay , he was giving it holly in Careless Whisper .. Beyoncé was hot back then .. but weren’t we all 😎😂🕺

    Got to go and soften my earplugs .. hilly tomorrow but Paddy reckons he will be like Niall’s donkey coming back off the Gap of Donloe ... mad for road for his spiritual home ... Alvor

    He can feck off I’ll see him there 🤷‍♂️

    Praia de Amoreíra

    September 4, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Der Strand Praia de Amoreíra gilt als eines der schönsten Strände Portugals. Er war wunderschön, wie auch viele vor und nach ihm 😉. Wirklich besonders ist aber der kleine Fluss der hier in den Atlantik mündet. Er ist zwischen Knöcheltief bis Hüfttief, so dass er zu einer Wanderung einlädt, was wir natürlich auch gemacht haben.

    Damit Alex auch richtig als Tourist auffällt, hat er sich heute noch eine Kappi gekauft. Und natürlich auch als Sonnenschutz bei den gefühlten 35 Grad ohne eine Wolke am Himmel.

    Unser Zuhause für 3 Monate

    July 23, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Ein Sommer am Meer, das war mein Traum und den habe ich mir dieses Jahr erfüllt. Nur 10 Minuten laufe ich jeden Morgen zu unserem Hausstrand - Monte Clerigo. Ein Träumchen, oder?

    Praia de Monte Clérigo

    October 18, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute mache ich am Vormittag einen langen Strandspaziergang ausgehend von Mont Clérigo in Richtung Süden. Hier stecken überall die Schieferplatten im Sand und die Einheimischen sammeln Krabben und Octóbusse.Read more

    Praia de Amoreira

    October 18, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Mittags leihe ich mir dann am Praia de Amoreira ein Board und einen Wetsuit (30€/d) und genieße die Wellen 🌊🏄🏼‍♀️. Um an diesen Strand vom Mont Clérigo aus zu gelangen muss man den Ribeira de Aljezur überqueren, der hier in den Atlantik mündet. Woran ich aber nicht gedacht habe, dass er am Nachmittag bei der Flut natürlich durch den Atlantik geflutet ist und man nicht mehr wie bei Ebbe nur bis zu den Knien durchwaten kann. Und der kleine Smart stand ja auf der anderen Seite und wir mit Kamera und all unseren Sachen auf der anderen. Also ist Reiner zum anderen Ufer geschwommen und ich mit all den Sachen am Fluss entlang Richtung Straße nach Aljezur gelaufen, wo wir uns dann wieder getroffen haben :)
    Abends gehen wir wieder bei Bilal essen (er ist im Hintergrund auf dem Foto zu sehen). Später setzt er sich zu uns und erzählt uns seine Lebensgeschichte bei ein paar Schnaps. Wie man sieht, hatten wir ne Menge Spaß.

    A tedious afternoon getting lost.

    April 16 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Oh my god , did I get lost this afternoon!
    Whenever the route gets really exciting, the Rota Vincentina goes inland and follows some road.
    So I decided to continue following the cliffs along paths where one is never shure, was it left by fishermen or by the many wild boars that dig up roots along the way. Well this one was definitely wild Boars! It become less and less clear until I was stuck in the middle of nowhere stuck in brambles up to my crest ripping myself bloody. I got through on the first 500 meters but then gave up and returned to the official path along a Main road.
    But the evening was great, with an la carte dinner in exclusive location. Mmmmm.!

    August 21, 2020 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Esta noite foi muito mal dormida, uns miúdos ao nosso lado, fizeram uma festa até às 5 da manhã. A Mariama é que acabou por se levantar e pedir para baixarem a música.

    Antes das 9 já estava ela e o Valentim a levantarem se para ir correr. Pensava eu que iria poder dormir mais um pouco, mas passado dois minutos ouço: Madrinha tenho que fazer cocó!!!
    Grrrr... Já não tinha hipótese. Levantei-me e fomos dar uma volta junto à falésia. Quando eles chegaram, tomámos o pequeno almoço e seguimos. Com isto tudo já era quase meio dia. Passámos no mercado de Odeceixe para comprar peixe fresco e seguimos para um recanto na falésia junto a praia do Vale do Homem.

    Mais uma tarde bem passada a fazer um churrasco com esta vista maravilhosa.
    Ainda tínhamos que fazer os despejos da autocaravana, encher com água limpa, pôr gasolina e chegar a tempo de ver o pôr do sol na praia da Amoreira.
    Foi o tempo de estacionar a um km da praia onde íamos pernoitar e fazer o resto a pé junto ao rio.

    Claro que não dá para estacionar junto à praia com a autocatavana.
