Portugal

For our first major excursion we took a trip to Lagos, Portugal to spend time on the beach and catch some rays. Little did we know that we would catch too many rays and most of us would come back with extremely horrible sunburns.. But in the end it was worth it to see the beautiful beaches and rock formations.

We stayed in an apartment style place. Four or five of us shared a little "cabin" and we were right next to each other. There was a pool, mini golf course, and place to grill. The couple that owned it were very sweet. It was close to the beach and the downtown area which was a definite plus. 

On the first day there we toured the rock formations and caves in the sea on a boat. This was my first time at the ocean so I was in awe. Here is a photo of one of the rocks. Can you see the face?



So my first time in the ocean... All I can say is that is was so salty. But I am so happy that I got to experience it with this great group of people. Our first afternoon there we went to one beach and laid out and played around in the water. It was a very relaxing afternoon.


The next day we went to a beach that had many surfers and a beautiful landscape. I did not surf but I did wander around a little. As a word of precaution, make sure to always where shoes. It was a little breezy but the sun got the best of us. It was such a beautiful and relaxing weekend that was much needed.


We all wanted to stay there forever. But on Sunday it was time to pack up and make our way back to Spain with a week full of classes and activities. 

Hasta Luego,
