More Pictures From The Algarve.




That translates to Menu Of The Day.  The two lads chose this in the Algarve Shopping Centre on Sunday.  There are lots of high street stores and we even went in good old C & A.  It must be twenty or thirty years since I last went in one of their stores in Manchester.  Their clothes prices seemed reasonable too.


 Drinks at the hotel; wine, cider, lager (cerveja) and an amazing local brandy called: Brandy Mel.  I brought a couple of bottles back with me.  It was only a Euro and twenty five for a beer and two Euros twenty for the brandy.  Don't we get ripped off in Ireland and Britain?
 A statue of the famous chicken peri peri. in Guia.  Guess who sampled the sauce?  Portugal should put a rocket into space.  They have invented the fuel.
 Oranges for sale at the side of the road.  A Euro a bag.  Number one son walking a head of us oldies on our way to the Algarve Shopping Centre.

Albufeira beach Sunday afternoon.  Absolute scorchio and God was in his Heaven.  Albufeira was far from quiet and it was full of tourists and the Portuguese locals in the town.  But we captured these photographs on the beach and it appears deserted but it wasn't.

  1. What a fantastic place for a holiday!!! Looks sunnier than Greece is at the moment and definitely cheaper. Beer is cheap there and that Mc Donalds and the oranges are just a little cheaper than here.

    Have you booked your next holiday????

  2. Hi Linda. The Algarve is like England in the sun. Everything like menus/ prices are written in English and most people in the tourist areas speak perfect English. Even in Portuguese areas you only need to show them your fingers and point to the signs and they serve you happily and tell you how much you owe them with their fingers. I am sure its the same in Greece?

    I have another trip planned in my head. But I am trying to find away for just two of us to go. The lads aren't impressed and it looks like we will be paying for 4 adults. In future we will book months in advance with Ryan Air. Thanks!

    1. Hi Vera. I would like to spend holidays there for a few years, especially in Winter when it's cold and wet. Nothing is written in stone. So perhaps we will one day move to Portugal. There is an annexe with the property that needs renovation. If we do it up and could rent it out it will pay for cheap air tickets there.

  4. Nice to see the photos
    I can feel the warmth. Although it is Spring like here it is still cold in the east of England. Look forward to more property news.

    2. I have often thought about it. A little place by the sea in Biarritz would suit me well!
