Campervan Adventures in Spain & Portugal: Lagos & Salema

Today was another gorgeous nature day! The beaches in southern Portugal are amazing!

We walked from camp to the trail that runs along the cliffs - now Portugal was odd. The beaches and nature are just amazing, but the towns? In the south not so much. I didn't realize Portugal was such a poor country before going there. There were tons and tons of run down places right next to super expensive looking places. It was very odd and not what I was expecting. 

But like I said the nature was amazing! This is just going to be lots and lots of photos from the cliffs or down on all the beaches!

So many shells!

We could have taken another boat tour from here, but we were limited on time (we had to check out of the campground after lunch) so we did not

Once we got back to camp we still had a bit of time so we went into Lagos to explore

And had some foccacia as a snack...which was just okay

The beach in town

Lagos was...meh. I would not go here for the town. You go here for the beaches! It was like it was lacking charm. There were some fun murals, but it was not very interesting to walk around in as there wasn't much to see. 

Then it was on to Salema Beach to try and find the dinosaur tracks!

Found them!

We were planning on swimming, but the water was FREEZING! It was even too cold for Raymond! So we just enjoyed the rocks and beach for a while

Then it was on to camp (Camp de Campismo Orbitur Sagres) for the night. 

18.46km walked/41 flights

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
