Vilamoura, Algarve – Portugal

Today we went to Vilamoura which is one of the largest tourist complexes in Europe comprising over 2,000 hectares of land. It has the largest marina in Portugal where up to 1,000 vessels can berth. There was some very nice boats berthed in here. It is surrounded by hotels, shops and restaurants. We heard a lot of english accents so clearly a very popular holiday spot with the British.

There are 6 golf courses in Vilamoura which we hope to play over the next three weeks. Altogether there are 37 golf courses in Algarve.

The weather was lovely again with the thermometer in the car registering 29 degrees. We popped into an Irish pub to watch the Liverpool v Chelsea match in honour of our Liverpudlian mate Paul but unfortunately it was not Liverpool’s day.

Steve is definitely on the mend although he still sounds very special. He is eating again but struggling with drinking beer – is this the turning over of a new leaf? I can only live in hope : )






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.

    Send that bug over to Stefan. Might curb his appetite for beer!
    Glad Steve is feeling better. Xxx
