The hostel we stayed at has a rooftop terrace and this was the perfect place to have our breakfast,before heading out.
On our way to the car we encountered some lovely mural tile work.
Today we took a road trip to Lagos. Due to some technicality with the rental car we couldn’t take the toll road, so we got to take the scenic route and see all the towns along the way. I can completely understand why Lagos is such a popular destination in Portugal. It has everything you expect of a Portuguese city. Beautiful paving, charming coloured buildings, tile work, and a lovely walk by the harbour. Not to mention all kinds of incredible food. I was really impressed with myself that I could express myself well enough in Spanish that the Portuguese lady in the bakery understood what I wanted.
One of the beauty spots in Lagos is the Ponta da Piedade, a series of beaches with incredible rock formations and water so blue it looks like a tourist advertisement
In the afternoon we managed to work in another adventure, by taking a horse ride around the Algarve coast.
Our road trip continues through the country side to our next destination, the surf lodge where we will stay for the rest of the trip. The farm lands and villages is everything I expected!
Be kind. Stay safe.
