Eventually the plane was boarded and we were on our way, Our vacation had truely commenced.The short flight to Portugal went really fast and we soon landed.We reclaimed our baggage and were finally on our way to the hotel.The short drive took us through little portugese villages clustered in orange and lemon groves with white painted villas dotted around green lushious greenery .The temperature was already in the 90’s although it was barely mid morning. As the coach winded past the coast we caught sight of the beautiful turquoise, blue ocean and the white waves kissing the sunkist golden sands.What a spectacular sight.
Having checked in we settled in had lunch and napped considering we had commenced our journey at 2 am that morning.
Late afternoon and it was time to explore, our hotel was magnificient, set on the cliff tops amongst immaculately kept gardens and having spectacular views of the oceans.We discovered tennis courts ,gym, spa and best of all an enormous swimming pool.Wow I thought I am going to love this place.
