Lagos - AlgecirasNovember 9, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C
Chilly day in Lagos and from 5pm till 1am i went by bus and blablacar to Algeciras
See for yourself ;)
Shepherd dog observing while working
After I put up my 'bed', I thought it could rain in the night so that's the funny result - it really rained in the end and worked - what more could you want?
28 kilometrs hiking that day, from 10am till 7pm with 30min lunch break at the beach :)Read more
Vila Nova de Milfontes - Almograve
Wonderful - see for yourself ..
wild rosemary, thyme and mint and an uncountable number of cork trees even if they have numbers
Sometimes it's challenging with my carriage (kilometers of sandy paths or steep slopes) but I never fell so it's manageable ;)
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 ;)Read more
Of a hostel where you pay 10 euros per night you wouldn't expect such comfort, cosy athmosphere, clean kitchen, 2 lockers, 3 terasses, super internet, a cinema, and a jacuzzi and everyday either pilates, yoga, running or cocktailmaking classes.
I enjoyed my stay, cooked also for the next days as I planned to be outside the whole time. Siva, the cook there widened up my horizon - as a traveller his whole life and teacher in Qi-Gong, Tai-Chi and Yoga,.. he gave again totally different answers to the questions of my questionary 'Understanding life' and great exercises - thank you Siva. I could give something back with a Shiatsu massage and realised how much I missed massaging.
I was totally overwhelmed and stayed 2 instead of one night. I would have loved to stay much longer because even the people I met there were amazing and lifechanging. If not the hiking trail and the sunny weather period were calling me..Read more
