So, I am on holiday. In the Algarve, Portugal. It’s very hot and sunny, and we are in close proximity to water, which is a good start. I am with my family, and the families of Fiona’s siblings, Cliff and Sandra. Kids in the age range of 13-24, with a clustering in the late teens. So plenty of potential for disaster, although things have been great so far.
The good news: I have managed to find a brilliant supermarket, Apolonia. It has the BEST selection of Portuguese wines you can imagine. I can’t blow the communal budget on expensive bottles, but there’s much more fun to be had around 10 Euros than you could possibly imagine from the selection of Portuguese wines in the UK, where they are a lot more expensive.
The good news (2): I have also found a lovely running route. It’s a bit hilly, and there are quite a few scary barky dogs to be avoided, but I have bought a mobile data bundle I can use runkeeper to track my running.
More updates to follow.
