We are half way through our travels and we thought it would be useful to have an overview of our costs, year to date.
This was a post which I started back in the UK but never got around to publishing, partly because I wanted to see what the continent would bring.
Throughout our journey, something new is appearing on the horizon. Something large, sleek, elegant and something in abundance.
46% under budget in Portugal?? Not bad at all!
It was our last day in Portugal, we were close to the border and keen to move on. Would the guide, would Julie have one last laugh?
21kms walk this morning, half an hour lunch and we are off again to attempt our second walk of the day.
Well, we are gradually making our way out of Portugal and we have left, what we thought were going to be the best walks, to the end, because of their length and because of their location, inland and close to the mountains.
A village on its last legs? Cachopo is small, cute and noisy, but is it going the same way as the abandoned village, Roche Amarela, we visited a few days ago?
The Algarve has been a disappointment so far, we need to find somewhere away from the coast, a little more rural, but also the weather is getting better. Perhaps things are improving.
We arrived late at the aire last night, this was a wild west inspired site, and should have had electricity and Wi-Fi. But at 6-30pm everything was closed. They were all either in bed, or watching TV via their satellites.
We are getting into the more remote parts of Portugal and the Algarve. This is a marked improvement on the touristic crap on the coast, but as you get more remote you also step back in time, sometimes too far.
