Portugal

We got back from a brilliant week in Portugal late on Tuesday night. The holiday was made even more special by Daniel's proposal - see post below! There were no direct flights from Gothenburg to Faro, so we flew from Copenhagen instead. As the flight was super early in the morning we decided to travel down to Copenhagen by bus the day before and spend the day exploring Copenhagen and then to stay in a hotel before heading to the airport at 4am!

We'd been to Copenhagen 2 summers ago, so the weather was a bit different this time round -grey and wet! Below is a photo of Nyhavn which is a very picturesque row of restaurants and bars, one of which Danish author Hans Christian Andersen used to live above.



Once in Portugal we were very lazy - just spending our time wandering along the beach and round the marina, or lazing by the pool reading - perfect!!



Most evening we walked into the nearby town of Vilamoura for drinks and a meal. We even managed to find a Swedish restaurant where we could speak Swedish to the waitress!


I thought this looked like the Portuguese version of the Nyhavn row of coloured bars and restaurants! I quite fancied living in the purple house!




The end of our holiday :(

That's funny ! I found out you blog when I was searching for something (don't remember now what was!) and I know exactly where it is "your" purple house. I go to Vilamoura almost every holidays...naturally..because I'm Portuguese.
Anyway, congratulations for you engagement !

Don't you just love cocktail umbrellas? They make any drink feel like a holiday!
