October 2004

The last October was a busy month¡K It all began with a forum from our friend Geoff Wright ¡. Anybody in Algarve next week? ¡ and guess¡. We booked hotel and two days later we were on the road¡ It is great to meet friends like you (Geoff and Mary). We stayed in Albufeira but also visited Sagres (Cape St Vincent) and Silves .

January & July 2005

For new years eve, we were wondering were to go for the long weekend break, when we saw a offer for Tavira on the other side of Portugal. What a treasure to discover, we will be back soon

On June we stayed at Praia de Rocha (not my favorite place around there) went to Carvoeira and CApe Vincent again and drove along Montechique and through the coast back to Sagres with our friend Jenniferchin

1st Visit to Albufeira 17 years ago

I could not find the places I went 17 years ago, I could only recognise the beach, but it has changed so much.... I guess it has happened the same to many of the Spanish resorts :(

Review: My cousin just told me we did not stayed in albuferia, we stayed in Portimau... ops
