TAVIRA THE GEM OF PORTUGAL

I rode my bike through TAVIRA  nearly 2 years ago.  I really loved it here and wanted to return to see Miguel of LAGOAS ALOJAMENTO LOCAL and their super hostel.  It’s a must visit.

Our first day was the warmest of the 4 days we were here. So we rented bikes, rode to the dock and go to Tavira Island. (3euro).  Last time I was here I walked to the dock, I tried to hitchhike, no one would give me a ride, but then I saw those same people waiting for the boat. Were they scared of me now?

TRAVELING THIS TIME OF YEAR IS THE BEST, THE FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING NOT A LOT OF TOURIST  AND IT’S NOT TOO HOT.  WE DID GO IN THE WATER, STILL COLD.

Tavira has a castle too, like almost every city I’ve visited n Portugal.

THE STAIRS ARE SUPER NARROW AND STEEP. YOU CAN SEE THESE YOUNG PEOPLE SKIDDING DOWN ON THEIR ASS, IT’S SCARY.

BREAKFAST ON THE HOSTEL TERRACE

There was a local photographer who had collection of photos of local doors and doorways. So it sparked our interest so we walked around town, to look and take pictures of architectural features.

I had the best meal of my whole bike trip here in Tavira, but where?  I couldn’t find it, I asked everyone, I downloaded the photo and showed people if they recognized the interior.  Miguel thought he knew too, so we went to a place O CICLISTA (who’s logo is a chicken ridding a bike)

THE FOOD WAS GOOD, BUT IT WASN’T THE RESTAURANT
