    Thought I would start a new thread similar to the Morocco 2015, for peeps that want to meet up etc, also it would be handy for others following for places to visit.

    Just as a side note, few years ago spent a couple of years wild camping round the Algarve, great fun and was very cheap when we wanted to eat out. :)

    Wow, love that area of Portugal. Have you visited the Roman ruins at Milreu (spelling probably sucks) or the stately home in Estoi.
    Also there is a small town, Sao Bras De Alportel not far from there which has some stunning restaurants that are dirt cheap! They are well hidden away though.

    We are at the Aires in Milladoiro - sad to leave Portugal but Hello Galicia! Just been into town which is a short walk from the Aires to top up our Spanish sim card and stopped off on the way back in Sams Sports Cafe and an Irish bar - both bars were really cheap and we have never had tapas like it! The people are lovely and we are going into Santiago de Compostella tomorrow so I am one happy girl! (y)
