Portugal was sort-of-in-the-middle of our 6 week, 7 country trip. At this point, we had been traveling for awhile, and were reasonably tired. The place we stayed was the perfect cure for that. It was rejuvenation, relaxing, and so beautiful. We were treated like royalty.
We stayed on the coast in the Algarve, and honestly, we didn’t explore enough. But that was totally okay with both of us, because we were so ready for relaxing days with zero sight seeing, train connections, ordering food in a different language, or walking miles and miles through beautiful cities. So instead, we soaked up the calmness, and natural beauty that is the Algarve.
I would love to go back and experience more of Portugal, but what I did experience, I loved. The relaxed vibes of coastal living, the beautiful scenery of the cliffy coasts, and the most beautiful turquoise waters, all combined to make our time in Portugal some of my favorites. The amazing massage + facial I got while there also helped me fall in love ;)
