Next stop on our farewell to Europe tour was a nice, relaxing holiday on the Algarve. Being half-Portuguese and having my dad there certainly helped us discover all the local gems. We basically spent the week being fattened up. The food was amazing, especially the sardines! I managed to eat 18 large sardines in one sitting, much to the delight of the owners/chefs.
Sy (my dad) was the perfect host: arranging for us to have a great 1-bedroom apartment in the Praia da Rocha then stocking up the fridge with lots of Portuguese cuisine to eat, despite keeping us so busy we hardly had time to eat there!
His itinerary included taking in most of the towns in the area: Portimao, Albufeira, Vilamoura, Quarteira. A highlight was the amazing rock formations at Praia do Vau, where most of our photos were taken. We also managed to squeeze in some shopping, much to Sharon's delight.
