Day 2 completed! We started off our trip here in Algarve, Portugal rather thrilling the first day with our lovely host, Conrad Algarve hotel, setting up a fun safari tour the first day. For our second day, they planned a couple of other exciting things: golfing lessons and a wine tasting class. We had a lot of free time on day 2 to take advantage of the luxurious hotel, spa, pools and town after our activities which we loved.
I love sports; I’m a big fan of all kinds of sports, but my heart truly belongs to basketball, if I had to pick one. However, I’m always willing to try new things and was excited to finally try golf. I’ve never played golf or even bothered to watch it, but once I learned that golf in Portugal is huge, they have some of the world’s greatest golf courses and Algarve alone has over 30 golfing courses…that’s quite impressive, I knew that I had to try it out for myself! Conrad Algarve were sweet enough to treat us to some golfing lessons. After about an hour, I felt like a pro. I really did enjoy playing golf, although quite frankly, I still don’t know if I understand the sport, so confusing, I did like swinging the golf stick!
After a couple of hours at playing golf, we headed back to the hotel to rest, eat and work a little.. we then had a wine tasting class at 2pm at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Gusto by Heinz beck, where our charming sommelier, Antonio, taught us everything from the kind of grapes they use in wines, the different regions in Portugal where they make wine, the smell, taste, different types of glasses, etc. Definitely a fun experience!
As day 2 wrapped up with a fine dinner at Gusto, we got ready for day 3 which includes, clam picking and a cooking class! Stay tuned for Diary of Day 3. Follow @Conradhotels + @ConradAlgarve and myself for live photos of my day! #conrad555
