Here are the final set of pictures from our half term trip to Algarve Portugal. We also visited Faro and Lagos. It was a fun relaxing trip. We had a great time and I wish I could go back and soak in some more sunshine. The weather in Cheshire has been dreadful lately. How is the weather where you are? This Cheshire weather is making me miss Algarve so much, but I will survive until my next sunny vacation.
While in Portugal, we decided to visit Lagos. We have heard so much about the city so we decided to make the most of our time there. Driving down to Lagos from Algarve. The kiddies always enjoy road trips as long as they are fed and have some form of entertainment. It took us around an hour to get Lagos, thanks to Google maps and our Enterprise rental car.

The city of Lagos was cool to see. I am happy I got great shots to treasure for life. I could clearly see the similarities between Lagos Portugal and Lagos Nigeria. It was a fun experience all around. We had the opportunity to walk around the centre of the city and soak in all it had to offer. The only issue we had was when the kiddies found a ride they wanted to get on, and us not having our wallets on us. That was the end of our sight seeing. Kids have the power like that….
Our ride back to Algarve was ok. Having said that, we found that many roads didn’t have street lights so they were really dark. Good M is an experienced driver and has driven in many countries. I won’t advise anyone who is not very confident driving to drive here as the roads can be very different with lots of roads and uncountable roundabouts. There was a roundabout on almost every single road we went on.

It was a short but fun trip. I know we will be visiting Portugal again in the future. Probably a different part of the country. I love exploring Europe. So far we have been to Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Paris (a few times), Barcelona, Milan, Dublin, Edinburgh, and now I can add Algarve to the list of countries in Europe I have visited. I would love to visit the Scandinavian countries next, maybe that would happened for us next year. M has been to most of the Scandinavian countries I want to visit already because his work takes him all over the world. And he has only good things to say about them.
We spent our last evening at the Beach. It was quiet as most people had left already which was just what I needed. I am not a fan of crowded places, especially beaches and swimming pools. The Kiddies had fun posing for pictures, playing with sand and water. All I wanted to do was to walk around and admire the beautiful beach. It was even more beautiful in the evening.
And this travel post brings the end of our Portugal Travel Diairies. I hope you have enjoyed reading the short series as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you.
