Discovering Portugal – My husband and I first discovered the wonderful Portuguese approach to food and life in 2004 on Madeira. After many Madeirian holidays, we decided in 2013 it was about time we discovered mainland Portugal.
Our base – Our Portuguese sojourns tend to be in the winter, and so our base is in the south – Olhão in the Algarve. Olhão is a great location from which to explore the rest of the Algarve and southern Alentejo, and going further afield is not difficult as there is a railway station in the town and the airport is a 20minute drive away. So far we’ve explored Aveiro, Lisboa and Porto.
Our interests – We love hiking and are also keen birders so you’ll notice many of my posts are focused on Portugal’s natural beauty. We also love Portuguese food, and enjoy discovering its art, architecture and history so my posts as you can see via the ‘menu’ on the right cover a little bit of everything. Go on explore!
