It is unpleasantly quiet here on the blog since the birth of my daughter, I apologise. As always I have so many plans and ideas for the blog as well as for Youtube, but truth to be told: I rarely manage to breathe and sleep these days. I simply don’t find the time as well as the head space to sit down and write or produce content. However, I am planning on publishing some words about my life with a 7-months old later this Autumn! Until then, I am posting a lot on Instagram for everyone interested!
Today, I want to talk about our summer holidays on the Algarve in Portugal! In August we spent a week there: stayed in Praia de Faro for one night and then continued our journey to Portimão – not our preferred choice, but in Lagos, where we would have rather stayed, we did not find a hotel or Airbnb (we kind of booked very last minute).
In Portimão, our hotel was Tivoli Marina, which had everything we needed and wanted with a baby: spacious, clean and quiet rooms, various pools, the beach nearby and delicious breakfast.
From our hotel we drove around every day, often to Lagos, which is a beautiful small town with a crowded yet beautiful beach, lots of restaurants and (important for me) specialty coffee (try Black and White). We also went to Ferragudo twice, which is tiny but has beautiful small streets and a wonderful restaurant with sea view: Rei das praias.
We found the weather and climate to be perfect for traveling with a baby, the days were warm and sunny, but thanks to the cold Atlantic Ocean there always was a light breeze in the air. The Algarve is beautiful, the little towns worth a visit and the beaches are wide and beautiful, despite being fairly crowded in Mid August.
Feel free to comment below if you have any questions about our trips or would like to share your own view on the Algarve!
