Re: Black & Green Taxi

Some of the taxi drivers will give you their mobile number for use as almost private hire. I know a neighbour who phones his ‘driver’ a few days before arriving to find out his hours for time he’s here so the neighbour can plan his trips!
Me? Can’t be bothered to be that organised :lol:

Re: Faro Airport

We flew out of Faro on Wednesday, arrived at airport at 9am. Someone stopped people using the escalator but people just climbed up the stairs! Took us exactly 31 minutes to get through security scanning from when we joined the queue. Less than 5 minutes at Passport Control. New pub beside Soho coffe...

Been twice and tried their beers, wine and on one occasion had some food. Advertises as tapas Though I had a sirloin steak cooked exactly the way I asked for it. The side portions of sweet potato fries and ordinary fries are enough for two people. We ordered one of each for 4 of us and there was ple...

Re: BIKE

Would it be worth going to the hire shop at top of 'out road' to check if they would sell you one, they may be replacing current stock for the new season? Just a thought. Jumbo s/mkt had new bikes for sale at €80/90 when there couple of weeks ago. PS hope to catch up with you Ken, planning to be ove...
