Hello! So I'm back from the laziest week ever in Portugal (suffering mild post-holiday blues, wah) and wanted to share some photos of our trip. I'd never been to Portugal before but highly recommend it - we stayed in Villamoura, which is a pretty fancy town aimed at golfers & posh people with boats. Craig & I are neither, but we wanted somewhere that was super chilled & quiet, and this ticked all the boxes!
We spent most of the week just lounging in the sunshine - it was hitting 30 degrees pretty much every day (I didn't burn though, hooray!), and reading books. I'm a pretty speedy reader so I powered through quite a lot - maybe almost ten books in a week? My favourite was the Chaos Walking books by Patrick Ness - they are aimed at young adults, but are AMAZING. Read them.
Shorts: New Look
Sandals: Birkenstock leopard papillio*
There was a tiny bit of drama one day when poor Craig tripped over a step and almost sliced the bottom of his toe off! I thought he had just cut it a wee bit so headed off to get plasters and got the fright of my life to find him, pale white, standing in a pool of blood! Ahh. After a quick make-shift bandage and slightly stressful trip trying to find a hospital, he was bandaged up by lovely Portuguese doctors (and no stitches needed, phew!).
But apart from that little adventure, all was good and calm. We ate a lot of tasty food (there were amazing restaurants around the marina!), explored a Roman archaeological site (with original mosaic floors intact), watched the sunset on a huge quiet beach & daydreamed about what life would be like if we were rich enough to own a huge yacht.
Aw, it was awesome. I can't believe a week can fly by so quickly! I'm already planning our next big holiday... we've got big plans and it'll be quite exciting. More on this soon!
