While sitting at home in the depths of winter and lockdown it honestly felt like we would never get to go on holiday again. Thanks to the vaccine and the stars aligning we got to get away for a week in October and it was an actual tonic.
We went to Portugal to a resort we’ve been to a few times before but we wanted the familiar while navigating the real world again. We upgraded on everything as a treat.
Portugal were really on top of COVID stuff as well so it felt super safe.
Usually we don’t venture too far from the area the resort is in and after a bad Albufeira holiday in my early 20’s I wasn’t in a hurry to go back but having been locked up for so long we decided to explore this trip and went into Albufeira for a tour and a wonder around Old Town. We had a great time and I’m so glad we did it. Got to see dolphins and awesome caves as well. We also had some epic food and it all felt like a real adeventure! We were both exhausted the day after though. You’d think we ran a marathon. Luckily we were able to relax on the beach with jugs of sangria. 😀
