After a nightmare beginning, we eventually made it to Portugal, thanks to the good folk at Monarch. I think Ryan Air and West Midlands Airport are both now a ‘no go’ zone as far as I am concerned. Not only did we lose money on the cancelled flights, there is the little issue of a week’s car park (pre paid of course) Ryan Air are a damn Mickey Mouse operation, and if more proof were needed, look at this week’s headlines. Flights cancelled because staff holidays weren’t taken into consideration???
Anyway, we eventually made it to ‘Vale do Lobo’ and the apartment is…….fantastic! Laid over three floors, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two balconies, Air-Con, super fast internet, British TV and more! The beach is lovely and is not crowded and the beach bar is a great place to visit……..often.
All in all, a lovely, restful and great way to spend a last holiday before the tour starts! 😩
