... all beach. Algarve comes from Al-Gharb, meaning "western" in Arabic, which indeed it is; in fact, the most western point of the Algarve, Cabo del Sao Vincente is actually the most southwestern point of the whole of Europe and exactly where I am writing this from now, having spent a whole week slowly meandering along this coast, every inch of which is beautiful, 50km at a time! One week to drive 155km is pretty slow for us!

We did ...

... in the world. This is where I learned to surf for the first time.
Once we arrived, we picked up the equipment [board, wetsuit, etc] and headed for the water. After a surfing lesson, we gave it a try.

Now it's time for some natural wonders, we steer a course for the coast, about 6 km away on windy and windy mountain roads. This ain't Grampa's Algarve! Sweeping vistas, crashing ...

Heading West

A travel blog entry by drudell


... including the A22 Toll Road (think 407) close by - talk about a contrast! We climbed back down and hit the road again and arrived at our new home outside Aljezur in the late afternoon. On a hill near a creek with goats pasturing past it is a big house with a pool. Like all our lodgings, as a result of the weather we've been having it is cool, so I get a fire started and we settle down to a dinner at home and a good night's rest. Exploring will begin ...
