So was mulling whether to do 2, 1 or none and decided to do one combining both a non Vegas getaway and what is sure to be a sht show of a Vegas trip. Apologies to anyone not interested in Portugal, please check back next week for Vegas shenanigans. Sitting in the BA lounge right now, having a Crown and ginger and chilling before the first leg of the trip. Work has been a gong show and really want to get away for a bit. Wife and I are flying into Lisbon via LHR and spending a few days in Lisbon before taking the train to Faro in the Algarve. First time going to Portugal for both wifey and I so suggestions for places to go, food to try are much appreciated. We have a couple of walking tours booked, including a food tour but otherwise not much on the agenda except site seeing. My brother loves Portugal and has been bugging me to buy a place with him in the Algarve, but seems pretty far to go for sun and good food; might as well get a place in Florida. Will try to post pics when I can and hopefully something I post will be of help to someone looking at going to Portugal in the future. Cheers.
