Praia da Falesia and Faro

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon

... nighttime activities consisted of comparing Portuguese lagers and watching penalties, you can tell the Dutch have been practicing, they even have a special keeper only for shoot-outs. Hats off to Costa Rica in any case. Today we might quickly check out Faro, but our next stop is now inland. Evora, another unesco heritage place, awaits us in the ...

Broken camera!!!

... just one! We also got custard tarts and a mini baguette each for lunch. Once back at camp we packed our things and checked out. Time to catch the train. There is no platform so you have to climb a ladder to get into the train. That's fun with an oversized 22kg backpack on. The trip was fast, we got off then walked to a bad station where we waited in a really dodgy area for 2 hours. There was a guy there so messed up on something that he couldn't work ...

Another beach town

... do to the water and found the beach separated from lad by a large bar. There was a boat taxi service that drives you the few metres to the bridge for €0.75 each way. It was getting late so we decided to save the beach for the next day, and hunted for a gas canister or some groceries for dinner. Neither were available. Luckily we had left over couscous and some spices we could cook. The night was incredibly windy!!! The tent was ...

Post-visit: Faro Five Years Later

Faro was my first Portuguese city back in 2008. Today I have to change buses here again, so I figure I'll go ahead and explore it again... grab some lunch in a real restaurant this time. Food seems more expensive than I remember it being, so end up just getting ...

1419. A Wonderful Welcome back to Portugal

... I'm liking this town even more. Sure, it's a bit touristy--but I don't mind, it's got charm, character--and after parkbenching nearly 100 Spanish towns, I can more readily percieve the subtle differences between the two Iberian cousins... and it feels refreshing to experience a new country. Different food, language, architecture... a more run down feel, but not in a depressing way--more like shabby chic. It doesn't take me ...

    Old folks home?

    The hotel is located right on the beach and has a nice pool...this is the only draw really. Other than that, it has a really weird old folks home kind of feeling. One commons room literally is a room of about 30 couches, coffee tables and board games. Odd. But, it is walking distance to town...think cheap casino town. The room was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the water. They let us take our bikes (we are bike touring) into the room...this is always a nice plus for us. The breakfast buffet is included and actually had a descent selection of fresh fruits, pastries and hot foods if you choose...good coffee too! Honestly it is probably the best option in this odd town.
