Tavira, Portugal

Let's take a trip to Tavira! This town in southeastern Portugal is an easy day trip from Seville, so we went there not too long ago with a couple of our friends who were visiting from Germany. Tavira is quite popular with Spaniards and other tourists who want to get away, and it mainly survives on tourism these days after being a successful fishing village for many, many years. Read more

Fóia and Monchique, Portugal

Hello from the top of the Algarve! Before you get into this post, you might want to check out our previous and more detailed one about the village of Monchique and the mountain of Fóia. You can read that post right here. Read more

Sagres, Portugal

Back to Sagres, and more Portugal adventures for us! We brought my parents here - to the end of the Earth - on a cold and windy day, so it was a little dicey being a couple hundred feet straight up from the ocean! Read more

Lagos, Portugal

Back to Lagos! This city in southern Portugal is almost always our base camp when we visit the Algarve. Not only is it an easy starting point to visit a lot of villages and beaches down there, but it's also a great city that has a lot to do, amazing cliffside beaches, good restaurants, and an easygoing population.

Praia da Manta Rota, Portugal

It seems we just can't stop posting about Portugal. It's never going to end! That's not necessarily a bad thing, though - we have just had a really long run of Portugal due to our frequent visits this year. And, before the weather got warm and sunny, we headed to another beach in the Algarve called Praia da Manta Rota. Read more

Praia do Amado, Portugal

Hey all! More fun from glorious Portugal! We've previously visited Praia do Amado, but we went back recently with the family, keeping the tour-guide-for-all-our-friends-who-come-to-visit label going strong. Read more

Luz, Portugal

Had enough yet of us and Portugal? Lots to see, lots to do, and we've only scraped the surface! We recently went back to the lovely village of Luz in the Algarve, and we're here to share some pictures with you. Yay! We just had to show my parents a lot of these places when they made the trek over to Seville. Even though we've been to a lot of them before, going back was just as good of a time...

Carvoeiro, Portugal

More from glorious Portugal! We've spent an inordinate amount of time there this year, which is totally fine by us. :) Lots of guests, friends who live there, lots of reasons to go. As if we actually need a reason to go (again). Southern Portugal is fantastic. The Algarve region is full of life and scenery and relaxation, and we always have a good time there. When my parents came to visit again...

Cabo de São Vicente, Portugal

Welcome to Cabo de São Vicente! That's Cape St. Vincent in English, at the end of the world in southwestern Portugal. We already wrote a bit about this fascinating place in another post here, but we revisited with my parents earlier this year and we thought we'd share some more photos. Read more

Burgau, Portugal

There's always tons to see in Portugal, and the southern region of the Algarve is no exception. This long and beautiful coastline is a major destination for foreigners and Portuguese alike, and features some of the world's most gorgeous beaches. Read more
