Many of my favorite travel bloggers have raved about traveling through Portugal. The culture, the food, the gorgeous coastline – Portugal is a country that has something for everyone.
Even scuba diving! (I had to check into that, of course. Looks chilly but interesting!)
Their descriptions over the years about their time in Albufeira has always captivated me – the stories of the kind locals, fresh seafood dishes bursting with flavor, leisurely people-watching over delicious coffee, historical buildings and charming coastline walks have had me sold on Portugal as a travel destination for a very long time. Since then, I’ve become more connected in the travel blogger community and have read about experiences with surfing amazing breaks in the Algarve and chill backpacker beach vibes in Lagos that have made me eager to head over and explore all that Portugal has to offer.
On my dream Portugal itinerary:
There are so many other regions of Portugal to explore – the Algarve and Madeira are only two! When I go to Portugal I feel like I will need at least a few weeks to see everything that I want to see… or I could do like my grandparents do and spend the winters there (they are smart people). While my grandparents have their travel arrangements down pat after so many years of doing the same trip, I would use First Choice for my holiday in Portugal since I am less experienced and could use a little help.
This post is brought to you in collaboration with First Choice.
Guys, make sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter ... there's lots of extras posted there that don't make it onto the blog. I also have Google+ if anyone even uses that? And I'm on Bloglovin', so you can follow me there too! Plus it makes me finally plan a trip to see my grandparents. So there's that.
