After spending an awesome day and half up north in Porto, we drove for more than five hours to bypass Lisbon and reach straight to the Algarve region down south. Read more our Porto experience here first and then get on the car to enjoy Algarve with us. We decided to stay the night at a hotel at Boliqueme. Like many things in life and on the web – it is not always as it shows. The room turned out to be of really poor quality, small and above all unhygienic. Already exhausted after the long drive, we had no other way to crash in to bed but we were determined to switch to a better place the following day.
