We have been to Portugal a good few times but we have had a couple of bad experiences that sort of put me off and we have not been there in a long time. Once we stayed on a large resort in Praia de Rocha and I subsequently saw it on a programme called holidays from hell and I know why from experience. Another time we were there on May and it rained for the whole week it just bucketed down. But when friends with a house out there invited us and a friend for a long weekend we took them up on it. The have a lovely house in Lagos which is a lovely, lively town which holds it's original charm without being too touristy. There is plenty to do around and this time the weather was just fantastic and no strong breeze for a change. The five of us had a great time, fantastic company, never stopped laughing, good food and plenty of mojitos and the like.
Thanks Pat & Carmel for the great hospitality and also to Ger who was great company as always. Here are a few photos I toon from my iPhone.
