Praia da Falesia and Faro

... 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 ...

Charming East Algarve Beach Town

... with our room and the price was right when compared with other options in Tavira. But there are many things not really up to standard. Our room was spacious and had small balcony. The fridge was limited to a "fresh" temperature, adequate but not like a normal fridge (at 40F). And the "airco" is really "climate control" which the hotel controls. It felt more like a vent with mildly cooled air blowing. Most of the time it was okay ...

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.
