Even though I [technically] spent 4 nights in the Faro area, I didn’t do a comprehensive tour of the city to share with you. Instead, I will share a very small sliver of Faro.
I stayed in a wonderful hostel (1878 Hostel) where I arrived on my bike. I showered (!!), washed my clothes (for free!), and made a bunch of rad friends. There were great outdoor spaces, including a lovely patio and a rooftop space. There were a few musicians in the group, so we had a riot jamming on the grand piano, on my little uke, and a guitar, belting out some great tunes. Later, we hit the town, finding a hole-in-the-wall down a side alley that sold 70 cent beer.I got a great gift for Xmas eve – the arrival of my wonderful cuz! We immediately found a stretch of Faro beach, a bottle of Portuguese red, and some sunshine. All in all, not a bad way to spend some time! ❤
