Algarve, Portugal Diary / Day 1

COVER

Olá from beautiful Portugal!  I’m currently located in the Algarve region (excuse me if I said it was a city in my last post!) and we just completed Day 1 of our stay in this gorgeous little getaway yesterday. We were super excited when Conrad Algarve Hotels & Resorts invited us to stay and experience their 5-star luxury hotel as well as explore all that Algarve has to offer! We couldn’t pass up on this unique trip so we gladly accepted.

They’ve been so sweet to host us and offer us an experience to remember, not only with the hotel itself, but with Algarve. Ricardo, our lovely hotel contact, has been beyond welcoming and really sweet in helping plan our itinerary. The itinerary they’ve planned for each day that we are here is definitely thrilling! The first day was packed with fun activities starting with a savory buffet breakfast followed by a safari tour of the Algarve inlands! We rode through the hills and valleys with a super cool Land Rover- it was a bumpy road but that was definitely the fun part. We stopped every time our tour guides, Marco and Monika, wanted to share something about what they saw on the fields: plants like thyme, rosemary, mint or fruits like medronho (wild strawberries) or oranges as well as carob- a powder extracted from a carob bean to substitute chocolate- and how they are useful. We learned that cork is a key material that is produced in Portugal and distributed worldwide; we saw some trees that were extracted from their cork and would be marked by the year they were extracted. It was very interesting to hear, see and learn!

We then visited a little store in Quinta do Freixo to learn about jam’s and fig firewater. We sampled some jams; my favorites were definitely the orange and strawberry jams! So yummy. We drove off to visit the near by village; Alte. It was definitely the most prettiest little village I’ve seen with pebbled roads, all white houses and narrow streets. After a few minutes of walking around the village we were then guided to head to Fonte Grande in Alte where a picnic was arranged for us by our lovely host, Conrad Algarve. A picnic setting with a table full of delicious looking plates awaited us. Food, wine, dessert, I mean, they really went all out for us. I thought it was the perfect detail to an already amazing day! To wrap things up, we headed back to the hotel to rest for a few mins while they arranged car service to pick us up so we can check out the beach as the sunset was about to go down. We raced down and caught the most breathtaking sunset full of pastel colored shades. Definitely couldn’t have asked for a better first day! Looking forward to checking out the rest of Algarve as well as doing the rest of our activities which include: golfing lessons, wine class, and clam picking with cooking lessons! Fun!

Below are some of my favorite photos captured of Day 1 in Algarve with Conrad Algarve! Make sure to follow along my trip by checking out our hashtag for the trip: #conrad555

    Jules,
    Glad to hear from your days in the Algarve… I have to say it is quite a strange feeling seeing your blog full of portuguese words, portuguese background and portuguese light! But I’m happy with it!
    Favorite Pic: the one in the car!

    Just wanted to say that it is refreshing to see a young woman doing so well for herself! As a woman and a mom of daughters, I am proud of you. It is important for young women to forge their own opportunities and to be selective in all other opportunities that come their way– as a result of their hard work and fortitude– with poise and grace! Keep soaring!

    our summer house is in Budens… not far from where your are…. so I know exactly what your experiencing…
    That part of Portugal is unspoilt… the beaches are never crowded… even in high season.
    beautiful place with beautiful people who are so welcoming and friendly… we have been going twice a year for 7 years!!! and that will continue.

  30. Quyen Comment #33

    I loved visiting Portugal. I loved the markets, the people, the architecture, the food, and the beautiful fado music. That resort is beautiful, but I hope you have time to explore the city and get lost it in. Portugal is best for long walks and getting lost!

    To see this post and realize that you are enjoying so much your stay in my country really puts a smile on my face :) You’ve been for a long time one of my favorite bloggers (without any doubts!) and reading all your wonderful words about my country, just makes me so happy. I’m not sure if this sounds weird (probably it does! haha) but I guess it’s something like when you have an idol (singer/actor/wtv) and he/she visits your country and keeps saying amazing things about it, it makes you all happy and proud of your little country, right? That’s kind of how I feel due to this post :) Anyways, enough ramble, I seriously can’t wait to see your future posts, and i truly hope you make the most of your time here and that you love every second spent here <3 have an amazing time Julie :)

    Lastly, you may want to consider an IRA Custodian
    for safe keeping of one’s gold investment. s along with other retirement plans into a certified gold IRA.
    3) Are you looking to earn high profits and returns yet in a very passive and safe way.
    In another alternative, you can receive the rate because gold which was invested.

    There are, however, some things that you need to get aware of

    Obrigado Julie,

    You are giving an opportunity for a lot of people (especially in the United States) to see how gorgeous Portugal is and how welcoming our people is.
    Never the less, you have just seen a small fraction of this “garden planted in the seaside”.
    I’m hopping that more hotel managers give you the opportunity to see the rest ;)
    You will always be welcomed back.

    Where can I find a list of untrusted/trusted locksmith businesses?
    I don’t trust the reviews on Yelp because they could be faked.

    I want a reliable source that can help me distinguish good locksmith companies from the scammers.

    Hello!
    What a nice surprise to realize that you are holidaying here in my country. I imagine you’re really enjoying the climate and landscape of the Algarve, but I invite you to visit other parts of the country, from the beach to the mountains (with snow this time of year), you’ll see that this tiny country has much to offer. Do not forget to visit Lisbon and my wonderful Oporto.

    This year I was in Portugal too. We visited Portimao and stayed at Hotel Bela Vista, a small, but really cute hotel at the coast. It was amazing. I love Portugal and I can just recommend this country and culture.

    Have a nice trip :)

    As a portuguese blogger (www.in-tensa-mente.blogspot.com) I really had to share some words. ;) Enjoy our country. I’m glad to see the pictures here and to know that you are enjoying the experience. Eat a lot of Pasteis de Nata and Honey Cakes (typical from Algarve) and try to visit the other regions of the country. You won’t regret it! ;) But most important: have fun!!!

    kiss

    Love your pics!

    I love your outfits when you travel!! What are the names of the clothes. The red one looks like Isabel Marant. If they are main designers, do you have any recommendations where we can get similar pieces like your gorgeous ones that you wore on your trip but at a more affordable price?

    Many thanks for your blog!

    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments
    are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails with
    the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove
    me from that service? Appreciate it!
