Roman Ruins, Megaliths & Bones – It’s Évora!

Visiting Évora and the surrounding area in central Portugal is like a great school field trip that lasts for days. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the culture and history. Go slowly and savour this special place.

Visiting a place where the No1 tourist attraction is bones and skulls had me a little uneasy. Old graveyards are always kind of fun with their big gravestones and crypts, but you don’t usually see any remains of humans. This graveyard was different.

Another Beautiful Hiking Trail in Algarve

The coastal hiking path “Trail of the Headlands” was inaugurated in 2018. Just like its sister trail; The Seven Hanging Valleys Trail, this route offers amazing views of the unique seascape in southern Portugal.

It’s our 2nd favourite hike in Algarve and will bring you close to dramatic cliffs, pristine beaches and natural sculptures. It may be a stretch to declare it a walk on a cloud, but it’ll definitely get you closer to the heavens.

The Most Beautiful Hiking Trail in Algarve

The Seven Hanging Valleys Hiking Trail is probably the most beautiful hiking path in Algarve – and even in all of Europe, according to European Best Destinations.

The area is emblematic of the amazing seascape of Algarve, so if you’ve only got time for one, great hike while you’re in the Algarve, this should be it!

No wonder Cardiff is called “City of Arcades” as it has most covered shopping arcades in all the UK. Ready to go on a shopping spree back in time?

Should I stay or should I go? What two months of travel taught me

In times of turmoil, is it safe to travel? Desirable? Reckless? It all depends on your destination’s level of safety and your willingness to take a risk.

Greece has just imposed a nationwide lockdown, making it precarious to travel only for pleasure at the time being. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t go sometime in the near future. Chiara Crisafulli shares with us her thoughts – and struggles – about travelling in Pandemic times.
