Lisbon to Lagos
Bye for now Lisbon and onwards to Lagos. Beaches galore - but first we tackle the cobbled backstreets. Top tip: look out for a handful of all you-can-eat sushi places hiding in the streets of Lagos. We love local cuisine, but all-you-can-eat? #winning

Lagos to Ericeria
Check into Ericeira, home to the only surfing reserve in Europe. Set up at the surf camp before we launch into all things mind, body and soul over the next few days. Some say the name Ericeira refers to sea urchins. Others say hedgehog. It may be lost in translation but no doubt deserves some exploring.
First time surfer? No stress. Kick off the day with an included lesson to get acquainted with the lingo, skills and then off you go. Later, take savasana with an included yoga class before dinner.

Ericeria to Lisbon
Back to the heart and soul of Portugal, we meet again with Lisbon. Find (or lose) your bearings on a driving tour of the undulating capital and let the Jeronimos Monastery and the World Heritage listed Belem Tower feed your daily dose of history. Explore the buzzing neighbour hoods of Alfama and Barrio Alto. Afterwards, steal a minute to yourself or grab company and wind down in the Lisbon Botanical Gardens - a city oasis which is the result of a king wanting one of every type of plant in the world. Sprawl out, have a picnic and get in touch with nature (while also seeking some respite from all your exploring!).
