Algarve – Portugal

Unfortunately we haven’t been too far in the last couple of days. Steve has a very infected and inflamed throat. He hasn’t been able to eat or drink for the past couple of days and has done a lot of sleeping! We took a trip into Faro yesterday and navigated our way to Santa Maria which is a private clinic for locals and foreigners. The Doctor was great and prescribed some antibiotics – it will take up to 4 days to sort itself out though.

I have been roaming around our local neighbourhood though checking it all out. Have been for a run the last couple of mornings and then embarked on a do it at home gym program! It is a lovely spot and the temperature is very pleasant – it says 20 degrees but feels a lot warmer than that in the middle of the day. It is set to rise to 26 degrees on Sunday.

Hopefully we can get out and about tomorrow if Steve is feeling better. Meanwhile I will continue to enjoy the R & R.


This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
