On Wednesday 23rd January 2019 we arrived at Alvor. We parked at the “Pines” parking (GPS 37.12414,-8.59527) which is a tolerated parking spot for Motorhomes directly opposite the Camper Park which to us, is absolutely awful, it’s not expensive, just €3 a night but apart from the dumping spot which is quite well built, they … More Alvor to Lagos then back
Friday 11th January 2019. After two days parked by the side of a lake near the beach at Quarteira we really needed to fill with water so moved the 3 km up the road to the large Camper Stop.

Monday 22nd January 2018 It was only 41km from Barragem do Arade to Lagos but the one thing we needed most was GAS but we saw none!
