Our home for the next 12 days would be in a little village called "Ferragudo". We stayed in a spacious two-story, two bedroom penthouse that had an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean.
We arrived the evening of February 11th in Faro where we were picked up by Sergio, our home exchanger. A little note for you here. Alice and Sergio had come to Las Vegas on December 27th thru January 4 to stay at my home. They had written me asking to do a home exchange and that it didn't need to be simultaneous. Well how cool for me! I was flying out on December 28th to Belgium for the next two months to be with my honey.
When we arrived in Ferragudo, Sergio took us to their home where I got to give Alice and little Sergio a big hug again! We also got to meet Lucy, Sergio's mother.
We then went to dinner for some traditional Portuguese food at a little place called "O Velho Novo"
The food was fantastic! We started with a few appetizers, like this plate of fresh shrimp.
After dinner Sergio and Alice took us to our penthouse were we settled in and poured ourselves a glass of champagne that they had there waiting for us.
We toasted to our new adventure while sitting outside on the upper terrace under the stars of the Algarve!
