... the influence came from more current interactions. He also mentioned that there were a lot of African/Afro-European chefs throughout the country which I find very interesting. Fabio's input today was a great start and definitely helped me brainstorm and draft more questions to ask as I move forward throughout the continent. And it was right on time because tomorrow I will be on the road again. Next stop, Seville, ...
... at half time, and the atmosphere was quite electric. The second half didn't begin quite so well, with the opposing team getting 2 tries in a row, but then the home team caught up with a try and a penalty. The atmosphere became even more electric. The coach was beside himself. And then the opposing team scored again just before full time. The wave of disappointment that flowed through the stadium was tangible and real. Although they didn't ...
Day 176 6 hrs, 5.1 kms Day Totals: 16 hrs, 23.1 kms It's dark now, so I should pick up the pace--but when I pass through Parchal I figure I should tack it on to my collection. Neither a touristy beach town nor a historical village, it feels more like a lower middle class suburb. Find an open space with just enough light for my video clip... ...
5 hrs, 7.0 kms
Since it looks live I've thoroughly explored the Algarve region, I decide I'd better check the internet to see if there are any really cool spots that I've missed. Sure enough--there's a beautiful castle ton, Silves, a day hike from Portimao... so it looks like I'll continuing my Superhike a little further.
So next morning, I catch the train to Silves, where I'm dropped off in the middle of nowhere, and I continue ...
Day 176 2 hrs, 6.0 kms On down the road, I find myself walking along a busy highway lined with water parks and touristy stuff--so when I spot another village off to the side on a hilltop, I eager to check it out. Here I wander in the dusk through the tranquil cobblestone streets, and pause for a concert sitting on a wall, overlooking the village, open fields and the sun setting beyond, with a charming little whitewashed church behind ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Auramar Beach Resort Albufeira
Just back from a stay in the Auramar hotel and all in all, the stay was average at best.
Thanks to JoseManoel
Thanks to JoseManuel for his help in ensuring that I had no difficulty with my need for a gluten free diet. He made sure that he knew exactly what I could eat from the buffet every evening and made sure that if there was nothing suitable a plateful of meat and fish was served to me at my table. Even when he was off duty he made arrangements for me with the kitchen. Therefore I woulf like to say a big, big thankyou to him and will definitely return to the Auramar. All in all the hotel was excellent and we all enjoyed our stay.
I stayed at the Auramar with my daughter, son in law and grand daughter during our half term week. We had a super holiday. The hotel was very clean and had been recently refurbished. Although parts of the hotel were being re-done it did not interfere with our enjoyment. In fact while we were there an outside entertainments area was very quickly built then used within a week! The entertainment provided was enjoyed by us and all the other guests in the bar area. If you did not wish to be entertained there were other facilities available. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. My grandaughter loved the kids club and was particulary looked after by Danny who was a gifted, talented very friendly member of the "Zany" entertainments team. The food was good but perhaps at times could have been better. There was however always a vast choice available.
Wonderful position overlooking the sea
Was impressed with the Auramar and it's location, we would consider going again. We went out of season (end of March) so it was fairly quiet. Plenty of food available throughout the day and the rooms, although basic, were exceptionally clean.
Oh for english sausage
If the hotel had served english sausages for breakfast, i would give the meals 10/10.The hotel was very clean, rooms basic but nice ( a lovely view out to sea from the balcony).The pool area was very nice but i imagine it will be crowded in the summer months, although another pool was being built while we were there.(march/04).Entertainment left a lot to be desired, unless you like a saxaphonist every night, although the live shows were fine, for the 30 mins they were on.Staff were very nice, but the barmen could do with a course in customer relations.The beach and views were lovely, with a stroll along to Albufeira a must.On the whole, a very nice hotel and great holiday.
Loved it - will be going again!
We stayed at the hotel in April of this year. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, choice of food, entertainment and friendliness of the staff. The pools were clean and the hotel in general was spotless. We found several ways down to the beach from a simple stroll, to a more challenging route. The beach was quiet and clean. The local shops in the 'Strip' were fairly repetetive goods wise, but the staff were more than helpful. It was our first time in Portugal and the Auramar has given us a strong desire to return
6 of us arrived there in time for dinner.so we unpacked and went for dinner,we were in block c so it wasnt far to the restaurant,after tea went to the bar which was a bit of a walk no to far.got our drinks(all inclusive)and sat down to be entertained by a saxaphone and a keyboard player.21.30 the real show brazilian dancers for 30 mins then all night back to saxaphone and keyboard,it could only get better!NO same every night apart from 30mins of shows including a magician 1 night,parrots another and a singer who sang songs that nobody had heard of,the at 23.00 they put a cd on,this was in october,weather was good,good job because apart from eat and drink nothing to do in the hotel in the day time.all in all good food clean hotel,but they need a new entertainments manager,thats if they got one at all,so to sum it up,good relaxing holiday because theres nothing to do
Loved the place!
This was our first trip to Portugal and it couldn't have been better. T he Algarve region is spectacular, it's people very friendly and our hotel was lovely.The service we received was excellent from all members of staff, the quality and amounts of food were very good, the hotel itself very clean with lots of amenities, entertainment AND a coutesy bus to the old town! Overall, a marvellous holiday, we intend to return!!
First time in the Algarve
Very large hotel so to get anywhere had to walk a fair way unless you were in our room on the ground floor and able to take short cuts. For the size of the place, there still wasn't enough sunbeds for everyone unless you got there early. Variety of food was good. Rooms are clean.
Staff (including the cleaners) are very friendly and helpful. The entertainment started off very well with a group of Brazilian dancers but went downhill throughout the week. Overall, we did have a lovely holiday here and the New Strip (shops,etc.) was only a ten minute walk away so, make your own entertainment!
Sunday 10th August 2003. Arriving at the hotel the first words my 6 year old said were "what a posh hotel"! It looked lovely with lights wrapped around the tree trunks. The foyer was large and well illuminated. The reception staff were very helpful and spoke excellent english. We were assisted to our room by a member of staff. We were situated in block C which took us about 5 minutes to get to. There are 4 blocks painted in peach and cream. We arrived at about 9pm just in time for dinner. Although the restaurant closed at 9.30 the variety of food to choose from was excellent. Once fed we looked around the hotel.
