Rachel on the Road: Portugal Edition Part 1

Last year, if you’ve followed my blog for a while now you may well remember, that I went for a Cheeky Week in Spain. This year we went in search for some late summer sun once again, this time in Portugal. We managed to find ourselves a bargain of a villa in the outskirts of Albufeira in the Algarve.

After we found our feet we decided to take a stroll down to one of the beaches, of which there were many within walking distance.

Most of the troop took the usual path down to sand. Me, Row and Ida chose a more tricky but definitely more beautiful route.

After our little adventure I enjoyed the feeling of wiggling my toes into the sand.

But I had still had a bit of a climbing bug.

We decided we liked Portugal and the idea of staying a while.
