in transit: algarve, portugal

I’ll be off the radar in the next seven days as Knut and I are flying today to Faro, Portugal. We will then be picked up and whisked away to the beatiful Pestana Viking Hotel in Praia da Senhora da Rocha, a small fishing community and beach on the Atlantic Coast.

It will be both our first time in Portugal, a destination we’ve always dreamed of travelling to. Algarve is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal, a popular destination primarily because of its beaches, Mediterranean climate, and relatively low costs. It’s probably one of the most southern places in Europe we could go to as continental Africa is just an ocean away.

Have a great week guys!

    There is a disease you are likely to contract in the Algarve – it’s called Lusophilia – and it’s incurrable!

    I only hope that you enjoy Portugal as much as we do.

    Hey Freshmess! I just came across your blog trying to discover other males like myself who are into Louis as much as I am. Just got the Evidence shades today and I’m in love with them. Can’t wait to wake up tomorrow and where them in the day.
    I know this may sound creepy, but seriously you have the same style as me. I have the same Gucci belt and we’re both filipino OMG!!

    BTW-Love your pics of your travels. Hope you’re having a good time!
