Portugal #2

Here are some more pictures of gorgeous Lagos.

Traveller can not express how wonderful this trip was; while the whole of Europe was drenched with rain and clouds, Portugal was a beacon of sun, radiating warmth over us thankful travellers.
England's winter really outstayed its welcome this year.










Photobucket A few highlights?

Über cheap accomodation. The views from said accomodation. Fresh seafood. Delicious sangria. Swimming in the ocean. A developing suntan {or sunburn!}. Funny moments by the sea.

And the tarts. Oh, did T mention the tarts? Portuguese tarts are delightful little morsels which consist of baked custard, wrapped in pastry whilst singed with a blow torch. All for under a Euro. Yum!

Traveller recommends this sleepy seaside town to any sun-seeking traveller; it is inexpensive, quaint and there aren't too many tourists lurking around.

Pasteis de nata - the first Portuguese phrase I learned! Those custard tarts were heavenly. Want to go back this summer. I was in Porto last time, Lagos looks great!

wow, when I visit Europe, Portugal will be one of the first places I would want to go. Hawaii actually had a lot of Portuguese that came over when it had lots of plantations before. I would really want to go to the Azores and Madeira. Thanks for such a good blog! I look forward to reading more in the future.
