5 In europe/ travel

postcards from portugal

dear friends,

i recently had the pleasure of a week in the sun with an amazing friend. she’s someone i met through writing here. someone who astonishes me with her gentle spirit and creative nature.

somehow, we’d managed to find the perfect spot in the algarve, at praia da oura, in an apartment with a balcony from which we ate pretty much every meal.

we could see and hear the sea, as well as watch the sunrise and set. bliss.

the beach was lovely and the water just warm enough for a daily dip
algarve, portugal


i also had the immense pleasure of being a book fairy whilst on my travels
