Algarve Photo Diary

Algarve- the southern tip of Portugal is a wholeeeee other world. Right off the flight from Porto to Faro- we felt like we landed on an island and were far from city life. We were not mad about this and we were craving the beach like you crave a big glass of water. Gimme Gimme!

We checked into our amazing hotel and felt like we were on a honeymoon. I frequently was pinching myself so my mind and body knew this was in fact real life.

The south of Portugal’s beauty is striking in a way that does not grow old. For 5 straight days, I lost my breath every time we drove over a new hill to reveal a fresh sprawling view of the green water or a cliff formation that peaked so high you wondered how it ever got there to begin with. I could look at the same water crashing into the same line of rocks for hours and feel just as awestruck when we left as I did when we arrived.  It is a place that makes you fall in love with nature and the world.

What I loved most about this part of the trip and country was that I was able to reflect here. There were so many moments that left me sitting with my own thoughts in a scene that seemed not real and every thought left me feeling grateful. I realized how lucky I am to be ALIVE, to have my health and most importantly that I’m able to travel with my favourite person. Because at the end of the day- you can go anywhere in the world……….. but its who you have by your side that matters.

Thank you to the Algarve for taking a piece of my heart and to my love for taking good care of all of it.
