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
Thursday 22nd February 2018 We left Puçol early and arrived at the Camper Stop on the Ebro Delta (N 40.6584, E 0.67539) by about 09h00. It was a very large flat gravel surface marked out in reasonable sized bays with easily enough space for about 50 Motorhomes.

Wednesday 7th February 2017 Somehow the gas had not run out and we got our morning cuppa but when Steve checked the tanks both were showing zero. We found a gas station in Portimao on the internet but no coordinates just an address. After driving through some tiny roads no gas station materialised so we … More TV Chaos near Albufeira
Wednesday 31st January 2018 After our quick getaway from the really nice Lagos Camper Stop, after the battery alarm went off, we arrived at Alvor one at 10am just a 20km drive. Not a lot different just a large clay area with Motorhomes everywhere. Steve walked around, cables were stretching all over the place from … More Alvor, A Walking Paradise
