The first day was mainly spent in the airport and then on the plane to Portugal. We arrived in Portugal around 7 that night and made it to the hotel around 8. We decided to just eat at the hotel that night as there weren’t too many other options unless we called for a taxi to come and get us and we were already tired from all the traveling as it was. The hotel we booked was for a 1 bedroom apartment but when we arrived we were told that there had been a mistake when booking and they had upgraded us to a two bedroom apartment which was huge and amazing. The hotel was a golf resort and located in Algarve’s Ria Formosa Nature Reserve.

The second day we decided to hang out around the hotel and walk down to the beach. After the beach we headed back to the hotel to lay out by the pool while Brody enjoyed the kiddie pool. We also enjoyed the playground there. Later that afternoon we headed to the grocery store to buy some things to cook for lunch and dinner.
The third day we headed to the Vilamoura Marine to do a boat tour of the cliffs and caves. Brody slept the whole way out until we docked to get on the little boat to be able to see the caves and let anyone who wanted to get in the cold water and swim. Daniel braved it like a crazy person. On the way back to the Marine the boat captain let Brody drive the boat for a bit. He loved it. We then headed back to the hotel to be lazy.
The fourth and final day there we just laid by the pool. Brody and Daniel got in the cold pool water too. We also went to the playground one last time before we left.
Portugal was extremely beautiful and we would recommend a trip there to anyone!
