The Days in Portugal


18 May 2017

Flying to Warsaw from Faro airport. Arriving there late in the evening and still with a long way "home".

Apolónia is a special supermarket. It's not a chain and it's a gourmet shop. Its prices are above the average but the products are exquisite, exotic. It has been around for quite a while and I like to pay it a visit a couple of times a year. Always come out with a handful of yummy products. It's a unique place.

The Parque Ambiental de Vilamoura, translates as Environmental Park of Vilamoura, and it's a less known attraction in the region. It's settled in an unlikely area, amidst a sewage station and golf greens. This is a spot where I used to come often, back in the days I lived in Vilamoura (2006-2007) and I am not sure I returned here since then. It's a quiet area, ideal for a walk or some short distance biking. Specially in the Spring, when the birds are more active. Talking about birds, you wont wanna miss the birds watching shelters. There are two of them. I also like the old farm building, by the main entrance, and when it rains, the Quarteira creek is nice, with all the water flowing.

Time to check out the new roof terrace in Hotel Eva, right in the center of Faro. Nice decoration. Chill out music tends to mess with my nerves though. Found a restaurant on the same location, same great views, no music, fair (but not budget) prices. Mental note taken: come and try a meal.
