Less than 24hrs in Faro, Portugal, but it was more than enough time to indulge in some tantalizing tapas such as: smoked salmon wrapped around cream cheese and avocado which was gently placed on top of a slice of freshly baked baguette – the others, well, I can’t remember the ingredients, I just knew that every single bite was heaven. Of course, the meal would not have been complete without a luxurious glass of Portuguese red wine, MmmmMmm… I’m not a wine connoisseur, but every sip was heaven!
I took a small walk around the district my hotel was located in; it was very tourist-friendly and most of the locals spoke English. If you’re new to travelling or you prefer easy travelling without language-barrier restrictions, then Faro, Portugal is an excellent choice for you. From what I saw, there was an abundance of activities and sights for all ages, not to mention the city rests right on coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
This district was about a 10-minute drive from the Faro airport. Lots of shopping and stores galore!

Strollin’ along the cobblestone streets of Beja, Portugal. Quiet, serene with a cool-crisp breeze and a toasty sun shining down.
I slowly backed up against this window in an attempt to take a gorgeous snap of this charming city, only to be shocked by this cute but dirty little dog. He springs out of the window without warning, an inch away from my neck with snarling teeth, barking and snapping to his last breath. I thought I had a heart attack.
We all had a great laugh.
