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

Aljezur, Portugal

Welcome back to the Algarve! Portugal's vast, southern region might be known most for its beaches, but it's got all kinds of interesting towns inland as well. Back when my parents came to visit us in Seville, we took them all over southern Portugal so they could see what all the fuss is about. One of those non-beach towns we went to is that of Aljezur. It's pretty small, but it has an...

Cacela Velha, Portugal

Seems like we go to Portugal a lot these days! Sometimes, we go there to get away for a bit, or to escape huge holidays in Seville, or when family and friends visit. On this occasion, our friends were in town from Germany, so we decided to show them some of the many interesting places in Portugal that aren't at all far from our home in Seville. Read more
