Absolutely shocked by the beautiful Algarve coast. A popular holiday destinations for Europeans, and heaps of Aussies😉 we spent nearly a week, stoping in Algarve on our way to Lagos so that the girls could skydive! Their photos were unreal. I wish I could have even just gone up in the plane with them. Or of course actually jump. It’s been on my list for a while, next trip perhaps I can tick that bucketlist check.
Lagos was a cute little tourist beach town. We easily could have spent longer, and could return. Amazing little restaurants, beautiful coast line, and chill beach vibes. We spent the days on the beach, or kayaking the coast (trying really hard not to fall in as the Atalntic, as the coast is freezing. After the tropical waters of Asia, I think my heart would have stopped had I jumped in ha!).
Moving up the coast to Lisbon, I adapted the full on city life again. As you will start to see by these posts, I don’t know what to do city after city. Lots of walking tours and beautiful historic sites but my soul is certainly craving a hike or some adventure.
A highlight of our week here, for me, was Sintra. A magically little town filled with castles and views that would make you think you were in a Disney movie. Tray and I rented a car for this day, turns out, I can still drive! Standard none the less, in these crazy city streets. I was feeling confident and stressed by the time we got back 😉
