    Relaxen in Vila Nova de Milfontes

    October 27, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Nach dem wir in den letzten Wochen einiges an Städten gesehen haben, wurde es Zeit für eine kleine Auszeit... Die letzten drei Tage haben wir in Vila Nova de Milfontes einfach nur im Wirlpool abgehangen, in einer Hängematte gelesen und gechillt 😊

    Vila Nova Milfontes

    December 11, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    For our next next stop over we found a site in Vila Nova Milfontes and only being about half hour away we decided to drive over to take a look around before picking up a few supplies in Odemeira.
    The site wasn't for us with a lot of long termers set up, more to the point while walking around the site Tess was attacked by a bloody great Pyrenees Mountain dog. Luckily I managed to get between them before it got to her and Jayne was able to pick her up. No real damage done and the German owner was very apologetic.
    The town was ok with plenty of shops bars and resturants and the views over the estuary were stunning. Still back to the drawing board to figure out our next move.

    #Campingplatz in Vila Nova de Milfontes

    November 16, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Die Nacht verbrachten wir ruhig und hörten nur das Rauschen des Meeres. Heute Morgen gemerkt das unser Gasvorrat zur Neige geht und zuerst etwas zurück gefahren nach Sines zur nächsten LPG Tankstelle und dann gemütlich zu unserem nächsten Ziel. Nach dem einchecken gleich gegenüber im Markt Lebensmittel eingekauft und dann die Stadt bei einem Spaziergang erkundet. Den aufkommenden Hunger konnten wir erfolgreich bekämpfen. Ute traute sich an das Gericht das Tages: Tintenfisch Eintopf. Ich blieb bei Hamburger, wobei das nur zwei gegrillte Hackfleischteile mit Pommes waren. Uns beiden hat es geschmeckt und satt wurden wir auch. Das Wetter spielt weiterhin mit, auch wenn der Wind etwas kühl ist.Read more

    Mittagspause im Oasis

    July 26, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Auf dem Weg in den Süden hatten wir eine sehr schöne Pause in Vila Nova de Milfontes. Es gab mal wieder Fisch. Allerdings wollte Lotta nicht so lange sitzen bleiben, weshalb wir abwechselnd gegessen haben und am Strand spazieren gegangen sind.

    Spaziergang am Meer

    November 17, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Heute nochmal am Meer spazieren gegangen und ein paar Geocaches geloggt. Dann im Freien gekocht und draußen gegessen. Zur Zeit sieht es wieder nach Regen aus, aber bis jetzt war das Wetter top, wir sind sogar beim Spaziergang etwas ins schwitzen gekommen.

    Verstecktes Schiffswrack

    September 8, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Einfach Wahnsinn wie es da so liegt. Schiffswracks haben alle ihre ganz besondere Geschichte und eine einzigartige Ausstrahlung. Das frag es sehr gut versteckt und wirklich nur auffindbar wenn man den genauen Ort weiß.

    Milfontes

    July 10, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nach der überfüllten Algarve geht es jetzt an die Westküste Portugals. Hier in diesem Bereich der Küste gibt es noch relativ wenig Tourismus. Wir fahren nach Milfontes. Der Ort ist sehr beliebt, da hier ein Fluss ins Meer mündet. Die Wassertemperatur ist gleich deutlich angenehmer. Auf unserem Weg hierher sind fast alle Strommasten mit einem Storchennest gekrönt. Wahnsinn wie viele Störche es hier gibt! Wir sind am Campingplatz fast die einzigen, die nicht aus Portugal kommen. Bereits vormittags werden die Grills angeschmissen. Wir entspannen uns hier zwei Tage. An einem Tag haben wir eine kleine Radtour gemacht und sind begeistert von den Stränden zwischen den Klippen. Hier kann man wirklich einen ganzen Strand für sich haben.Read more

    Traveling the western coast of Portugal

    April 23, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Got up early and left the apt in Lisbon around 7:45 to catch the metro to the airport. Not many people out on a Sunday morning. Smooth sailing on the metro. Arrived airport aroun 8:55. Got the rental picked up- had a good sandwich at the airport. Took a few minutes to figure out Bluetooth on the car (in Portuguese). Left the airport trying to use GPS. Always hate leaving new airports - GPS was lagging a bit and confusing us. Finally got out of there and hit the road. We had Zips set for no toll roads but again, the lag made us miss an exit and then suddenly we were at toll booth trying to read Portuguese. No attendant. Finally threw some money at it and the gate lifted. Then we finally noticed the e-toll transponder at the top of the windshield and realized we were supppsed to be in a different lane for it to pop up. Crazy.

    Once on the back roads we were all good.

    As we drove south along country roads, we passed through miles and miles of cork forests. (http://portuguese-american-journal.com/portugal-names-sobreiro-its-national-tree/). You could see where the bottom half of the trees had been stripped. Also passed through some areas of olive trees.

    In Vila Nova de Milfontes , we ended up by chance (thanks to Yelp), eating at a great seafood restaurant on the beach. Wonderful grilled sea bass, potatoes,salad, wine (too much wine) . I'm telling you Google Maps , Yelp, and Trip Adviser are good friends to have on the road. And it's nice to have an always available Internet connection, although that does set me back $10/day, but I have a lot of data with Verizon and that $10 is using my home data allowance, so I can use it without worrying about it.

    Anyway, back in the car, we continue southward - at one point climbing into the hill town of Alijezur which has these homes perched on the side of a hill with incredibly narrow streets and 90 degree turns - once up there and in the middle of it, we wondered if we were ever going to get out!

    After departing Alijezur, we headed for Lagos and landed there about 7pm. Nice property with beautiful landscaping and very nice check-in person who went out of his way to make us welcome and give us some good tips. After that - we chilled.

    Vila nova de Milfontes

    September 30, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We woke up in the hotel, the shower changed from boiling hot to freezing cold, and went to have dinner at an hotel buffet viewing the rivermouth. We went to the beach in town, and just chilled under the Otentik, Yaara read, I played with Yam (When she wasn't sleeping). Later we went to another beach called Malhao, where it was surfable. The beach was nice, Yaara chilled on the beach while Yam is sleeping, I surfed on a not suitable longboard in a choppy rough waves. Quickly I got out, and we stayed there just enjoying ourselves. We drove back to town, went to see the sunset, while carrying unnecessary stuff. Had dinner in a nice restaurant called "Tasca do Celso". We went back to the hotel that was wiredly decorated, It remained Yaara the delivery room in Laniado.Read more
