We first fell in love with the Portuguese approach to food and life in 2004 on Madeira. In 2013 we decided it was about time we discovered mainland Portugal. Looking for Winter sunshine, nature on the doorstep and good public transport which was also away from the main tourist areas led us to the East Algarve. After a few repeat visits I realised that I had so many photographs of this beautiful region that I couldn’t fit them all in a photobook so as I had some time on my hands and we are now spending up to 6months each year here this blog came to life. I post twice a week sometimes more. The photographs accompany details of great walks, things to do and the occasional review. Our passion is birds and wildflowers so there are lots of nature posts too.

UK British expat living in Algarve
- Gender: Female
- Interest: Photography
- About me: I'm lucky enough to spend my winters in Portugal and the 'summer' in England. When not taking out walking and taking photographs in Portugal I keep myself out of mischief with my two blogs. My 'expat' one is all about our life in the east Algarve, and the occasional jaunts to Alentejo and Lisboa. Back in England I'm juggle life of voluntary work, supporting my parents on their dementia journey, consultancy projects and other travels. Hence my second blog.
