Algarve Coast - Road Trip

A travel blog entry by bn.trek


Just a quick note we arrived back home in Idanha Sunday afternoon after an extended road trip so be prepared you will be seeing blog updates over the next few days as we get all our pics together. We are taking things a little slower at the moment as I picked up the flu in our travels but the good news is I'm getting better but I have passed it …
