Portugal by Numbers



We’re now five days into our nine day trip and so far our holiday in the Algarve looks a little bit like this…

1 pancake brunch

3 long walks along the beach

1 lazy lunch at our favourite haunt

1 impressive shopping trip; 4 statement necklaces, 3 striped tops and 1 blanket/scarf

1 candlelit hot tub experience

too many to count day time hot tub soaks

4 mosquito bites (on one knee)

1 pudding platter, shared

9 mini magnums consumed

4 sunsets enjoyed

2 unexpected wave soakings whilst enjoying a pleasant paddle

1 head cold to contend with

3 books read

0 runs started or completed

Here’s hoping the rest of the trip continues in the same way.

      Thank you! We actually forced ourselves running yesterday. We managed a very short 15 mins as it was just too warm and there were too many hills! Laura xx

  • Ooooh sounds amazing – great recipe for a holiday!

    Mini magnums = yes! Mosquitos = no! Keep up those hot tub soaks; so jealous!

    • thisandthatblog

      I am in total agreement. I could have stayed in the hot tub forever. If only that was a realistic job option!

  • I’m so jealous of your vacation! It sounds perfect…except for the head cold! Hope it goes away soon!

    • thisandthatblog

      It was most definitely perfect. I’ve also realised that I can handle a cold when I’m in such sunny climates and don’t have to actually do anything strenuous at all!
