Portugal

I have been 1 week on vacation in Portugal/ Algarve/ Monte Gordo togehter with my youngest daughter. We had a very nice week and was enjoying 28 degrees for a hole week and lots of sunshine every day.
Monte Gordo are a sweet little town 3 km away from the Spanish boarder. The beach goes on forever and there were lots of places to eat.
It was to hot for any exercise so a place in the sun or shaddow was great. Our hotel was Ok but there were not any luxery though. Nice staff and and the pool area was great. We did not complain!!
We had a day in Lisboa. It took about 3,5 ours drive to get there so we had to be up at 4 30. The capital was beautiful and my daughter enjoyed the shopping. I did not like those who was begging, I did find it quite uncomfortable!!
But for sure I will be back one day!

Jeg har hatt 1 deilig uke i Portugal/ Algarve/ Monte Gordo sammen med min yngste datter.Det var 28 grader og masse solskinn alle dageene. Monte Gordo er en skjønn liten by som ligger kun 3 km fra Spanske grensa.Stranda er så lang at du ikke ser slutten på den og det var mange koselige steder å spise.
Det var for varmt å trene så vi holdt oss mest i skyggen og så litt i sola da..
Hotellet vårt var koselig, spesielt området rundt svømmebassenget , men det var ikke noe luksus. Betjeningen var koselig og det var det viktigste.
Vi tok en dagstur til Lisboa . Det tar ca 3,5 timer en vei så vi var oppe halvfemtia på morran. Lisboa er en fantastisk by og dattera mi synes det var gøy med litt shoppingmuligheter. Når vi satt oss ned på en fortaus restaurang var tiggerane der med en gang og det synes jeg var ekkelt. Spesielt når de begynner å knele...
En ting er helt sikker jeg kommer gjerne tilbake til Lisboa og Portugal.

  7. Anne Marie, you look stunning in these pictures. The warm weather, blue skies and sunshine really bring out the best in you. I suppose the rest and relaxation can't hurt either!
