One month of travel with Airbnb

Airbnb Review

The landscape of how individuals travel sure has changed since my last backpacking tour of Europe in 2010.

Five years ago, when I would ask fellow travellers where they were staying, 99% would list off the name of a hotel or hostel they were stationed at. Now, a large portion of travellers are choosing alternative accommodations to the typical overpriced hotel or crowded hostel rooms.  View Post

Portugal: We’ll Meet Again

Algarve

Our time in Portugal is slowly coming to an end.

We have three days left in this beautiful country, splitting our last few days between Carvoeiro and Faro. I don’t know if it is physically, emotionally, or spiritually possible to enjoy Portugal more than we have our first time around. We are already looking forward to coming back to this country.

I’ve never been one for planning too far in advance, in any aspect of my life, especially with travel.

I don’t like having things ‘too planned’. I’m all for a general guideline of the days ahead, even the week ahead for that matter, but when it gets to the two week mark, that’s about all my Type B personality can handle. View Post

How to rent a car in Portugal

If you have been following this blog for the past week, you know that my partner and I have been cruising around the Algarve in a fancy new Fiat. Fifi as I endearingly refer to her as.

After doing some Algarve research, we decided that the best way to see the region was to have the independence to tour around on our own time, wherever and whenever we wanted,  and so it was decided that renting a car made the most sense.

However, before you rent a car in Portugal, or any country for that matter, you must do your research.
