All good times come to an end and this is the case with my stay in Faro but not before having a one special fun night. The Algarve region is home to many summer festivals; almost every town has something going on during summer months.We didn’t plan anything in advance just checked the flyers from the hotel and went from there. The most memorable one was the Seafood Festival (Festivaldo Marisco) in Olhao where we (I am including my family in this story now.) tried the most amazing seafood from local restaurants and culinary schools and a enjoyed a life concert with literally thousands of people in attendance.
The last day in Faro, the city was preparing for the biggest Folklore Festival in the southern of Portugal and leading to that a weekend long smaller events took place with tone of life music, bazaar area and the most delicious mojitos and caipirinha ever. We started with dinner in a small place called SE7EPEDRASin the heart of the old town. The restaurant isi n a 200 year old building with a very cute decor and amazing tapas.From there we just walked across to the Marina square where all the action was happening.We finished the night with a bang with drinking and dancing under the sky.
The next morning we said goodbye Faro and hello Lisbon. We put the bags in the hotel and hit the streets. Lisbon is getting busy, so you need to get there before the crowds. We went to most of the important landmarks. The city is famous for its beautiful viewpoints or Miradouros where you will experience breathtaking views. But in Lisbon there is one more important thing you have to do and tahts is you have to try the famous Pastel de Nata. You can find them everywhere but two places are above all others- Pasteis de Belem and Manteigaria.
The hit was real, way hotter then the ocean side and I wore light dresses to keep me comfortable.I want to mention something important, if you ever go to Lisbon pack walking none slippery shoes.The side walks and the streets are all paved and it gets pretty slippery walking up and down. My espadrilles were perfect for that, and I had no problems at all. I am going to link all my looks below if any of you is getting ready for vacation and wants to try something new.
This trip is now over, and I will be off of caftans for a while but more outfits are coming for Fall and Winter.Follow my on all my social media channels to stay in tho loop of everything that’s happening in my fashion world.
