Re: Big Will

Saw him in Tony’s last week having brunch. Seemed in good form given the chat with his pal and table next to him. When he walked away he seemed to move OK.

Also a gate installed at the point where you leave the boardwalk and step down towards the access tunnel. Someone been and done a health and ...

Is the price quoted per person What’s the minimum number of passengers?
From experience price is for 4 people, more then 4 costs more from using local taxis in CVO.

Re: The day after..

Original advice on getting International Driving Permit was I had to travel into Glasgow city centre post office (20 minute train journey then 15 minute walk), complete a form, hand over required proof of identity, photo and cash. Seems due to large demand for IDP, the need to complete the form is n...

Re: The day after..

I’ve got the two different IDPs as likely to drive to Portugal via Spain this year. The Green Card for insurance is just another bureaucratic opportunity for a money maker.

Re: Alvor 20109

Our first time in the Algarve was staying at Alto Country Club in Alvor, some 20 years ago. Whilst we now have our own place near Carvoeiro, we usually head to Alvor for a day out. A lot has changed in Alvor but still worth a visit/stay. Hope you enjoy the experience.

Re: Walk CVO to Ferragudo

There was an article in TPN about an upgraded recognised walk from CVO to Ferragudo. Someone put on another social media site that they walked it in 3 hours, I think. At the car park down from the Casabela Hotel Praia Molde??? there was an information board explaining the route.
