Car trip in Portugal

Much of what many are looking for overseas is located in Europe. Car trip through the southernmost region of Portugal – the Algarve. The most beautiful beaches of the Algarve, attractions, route details and practical moments in the second part of the report on a trip to Portugal.

Start here – Car trip in Portugal. Part 1. Lisbon – Sintra – Cape of Rock Marinha beach, Algarve Although we did not set ourselves the tasks, the trip turned out to be quite eventful. Before I begin to talk about where we were and what we saw, I allow myself to give advice. Do not buy any guides to Portugal, especially if you are going to indulge mainly in beach pleasures and spend only 10-12 days on it.

Portugal will not disappoint. Algarve, Portugal Continue reading

I was born in Jordan, where I lived the first ten years of my life. Then she moved to Tver, and then to St. Petersburg. For some time she lived and worked in Finland, and then in India. In 2013, I moved to Moscow – to interesting projects, a strong environment and that very crossroads. Then I decided to leave Moscow and live the life that I dreamed of – next to the sea and with the opportunity to surf.

In February 2015, I was interviewed to work for an IT company in the marketing department in Porto, Portugal. After four months of struggle for a working resident visa, I flew to a new country. Continue reading
