Vanessa and Clémence prepared a small “Escapade” … in Portugal ! More than an escape, it is a real adventure, an experience in the course of which they found the pleasures of the freedom and the discovery.
“Day 1 : St Jean d’ Illac – > Bardenas Reales – > the South of Madrid
Bardenas Reales : natural reserve in the strange landscape of Wild West. Main loop of 32 km.
Day 2 : arrival in Portugal with a visit of Faro
Days 3 and 4 : relaxation between Praia of Abandeira and Praia of Bemagil : the spot pleases well … so it’s time for beach, bathing, walk on ways overhanging cliffs and beach …
Day 5 : day in the country – > change of landscpae ! Visit of the castle of Silves and the cities of the inside (Manchique, Marmelete…. Barragem de Bravura)
Day 6 : back on the coast : Lagos, attractive certainly too much touristy but picturesque and pleasant.
Day 7 : west coast – > Cape St Vincent, lost in the mist and the beautiful beaches
Days 8 : days beaches : those of the West coast are widely worth those of the South !
Days 9-10-11- and 12 : visit of the city of Lisbon by settling Nestor (nickname given to the van by Vanessa and Clémence) in a campsite
Days 13 and 14 : way back to Bordeaux with some “zigzag” “.
A road-trip which left on our 2 adventuresses’ faces a smile full of beautiful images and wonderful memories !
