We (seriously) did not want to leave Cascais, Portugal – a charming seaside resort town west of Lisbon. We saw the days tick off, and knew we’d have to move on, but it was with heavy hearts that we headed to our next destination: Lagos, Portugal on the southern, Algarve coast.
Cheer up, we told ourselves. Lagos got rave reviews from lots of visitors and would be a pleasant change of pace. In our first weeks of exploring the town, we’ve discovered some of its appeal.
So, how did we originally decide to come to Lagos? The story started in California when we met a fellow blogger, Susan, and her husband, Bruce, whose blog we had faithfully followed for years, One Small Walk. She recommended reading Anita and Dick’s blog, as she thought we all had a lot in common. With that introduction, we started reading their blog, No Particular Place to Go. As Anita and Dick’s travels progressed, they decided to find a home base in Portugal and settle in Lagos. When we decided to come to Portugal, we did our own web searches and decided, why not?
As it turned out, Lagos has a lot to offer, and we have especially enjoyed meeting Anita and Dick. What an interesting string of recommendations that finally brought us to this town!
