Some spots are just hard to leave behind. This beach near Quarteira in Algarve was definitely one of them. Pine forest in the back, ocean in the front, kids playing everywhere and singing at camp fires at night with old and new friends. (It makes a big difference if the weather is sunny or rainy when living in the van!) This was an unexpectedly warm (literally and not literally) goodbye from our beloved Portugal.

Thank you, beautiful country, with your stunning coastline and irreplaceable people. We came with 3 and now leave with 4. Obrigado e até breve!
