Our 33-day visit to Europe was drawing to a close. We had one more place to see, the Fortress of Sagres (pronounced Sargresh), on the SW tip of the Algarve, Portugal.
After exploring the eastern section of the Algarve yesterday, we drove westwards today.
Today we travelled in an easterly direction to Villa Real de San António and then, across into Spain to the city of Huelva, about 3okms into Spain. (see map at this link)
We started our first day in the Algarve with breakfast at Noèlia’s restaurant and then walked around the town and bay of Cabanas. From there we drove to Tavira.
Today was a day of travel, travel and more travel via taxi, train, aeroplane and car as we travelled from Antwerp in Belgium to Cabanas in the The Algarve, south Portugal.
Today, we were still staying in Amsterdam, but visited the city of Leiden, an hour’s train ride to the south of Amsterdam. The sun shone again and the skies were blue.
For a change, we awoke to a beautiful clear day with blue skies and golden sunshine.
For our first full day in Amsterdam we decided to venture into the city after the King’s Day celebrations were over, or so we thought.
Disembarkation day in Amsterdam caused quite a stir for the passengers and crew.
After such a special and busy day yesterday, we did very little today. After breakfast we decided to walk to find the dock from which our boat would be leaving in 2 days’ time.
