My Adventure To Portugal

Recently I was off on my travels to Alvor in Portugal, where my friends were getting married!

A group of us were staying at Luna Alvor Bay and I was really impressed! I was in room 602 and this was the view from my balcony!


The balcony was really long, so I could also see right over the marina...


...and over Alvor too!


We chucked our bags in our rooms and headed out for a meal with the bride and groom to be at L'Angolo then for drinks at Mourisco, which is the place to be for cocktails! This is a Tangerine Sidecar, or some such deliciousness!


I caught some serious sun (a bit too much as you can see) the next day wandering around town and checking out the marina,then it was time to get dolled up and hit the town with the girls! We had a delicious meal at Adega D'Alvor and cocktails and dancing at Bar Havana. (Note: It's difficult to get your hair to do anything here, I had rollers in for half the day and the waves fell out super-quick!)


On Tuesday I had a day by the pool to sort out my red front/white back scenario and in the evening we all went to a lovely restaurant called Lusitania, which has flowers hanging from the roof inside and great food.



Wednesday was the big day, so I got the curlers in and headed out for lunch! Sexy, huh?!


This was at a place called Mel & Canela (I think!), which also did the most amazing ice cream! I had Snickers and Ferrero Rocher. Yum!


The wedding was in the afternoon so there was plenty of time to get ready and head to the church, which was beautiful.


The whole day was wonderful! As we all walked through the cobbled streets after the service, the locals looked out of their windows and doors as we passed. It all felt very Mamma Mia!

Unfortunately there weren't official photos taken of all the guests, so I can't show you my glamorous outfit! I really should have thought to take a photo first, but had hoped for a good, professional one. On the plus side, I can wear the outfit again!


After the wedding a few of us hit the town and headed to the Sports Bar for cocktails and dancing (sensing a bit of a theme here?)!


As you can imagine, the following day was for chillaxing, so I headed to the beach with my friend and her little girls and we splashed about in the sea, made sandcastles and ate ice cream!


In the evening we all went out to Navegador, which was the first meal that I'd had in Alvor that I wasn't that impressed with :(

The rest of the holiday was taken up with relaxing at the beach, eating out, walking around town, shopping etc.

If you ever find yourself in Portugal, you could also try out Don Toro steak restaurant in Alvor, and Aqua shopping centre in Portimão, where there's a lot of great shops including Parfois, Loja Do Gato Preto and Primark!

This place is seriously beautiful!
