Our Algarve Adventure

 The contributors emeriti were kind enough to book a large bus capable of handing all their luggage as well as the standard ShapiroAdventures backpacks for the trip to Algarve. Our driver left us off at the Pine Cliffs Resort where we stayed in the residences. While there, my sister arrived with her husband and baby boy. Bunny had a good time reading some age appropriate literature to DJ and her little cousin.

At the resort, we were able to eat an excessive amount of food while also enjoying the beach and the pool.

 Animal enjoyed playing at the Porto Pirata (kids club). Once a week there is a reptile show at Porto Pirata where you can hold different reptiles. Sarah was very scared of a monitor lizard that seemed quite docile (very atypical for this breed of lizard). Animal got to hold a ratsnake and I supervised Dorian holding an iguana - the first time he's held a reptile.

All in all, it was great to see the contributors emeriti as well as my sister and her family. After our time in Algarve ended we caught a cab to the Faro bus station and hopped on what we thought was a 3.5 hour bus ride to Sevilla, however due to the time change between Portugal and Spain, it turned out to only be a 2.5 hour bus ride! More to come from Sevilla!
