Today we set off at 3 p.m. from home to Liverpool Airport and we stepped out Faro Airport at 8:45 p.m. We have two options to get to hotel: airport shuttle bus or taxi. We could have chosen to take a taxi, it was only about £10 but cost wasn’t my concern, I wanted to see local people. Getting the bus would give us more chance to see them, the local areas and possibly learn a little bit more about them.
The next bus was about 25 mins away, while we were waiting, we chatted to a Portuguese who travelled from London to here for his friend’s birthday. George works in IT and he has been to the State and many countries in Europe. We talked about food, American culture, British culture, where to stay in Portugal and what to eat. The waiting time just flied. At the end we were even invited to join his friend’s birthday party this Friday! That’s what I like about this kind of travel. Both of us agreed that it wasn’t about the destination, it was about how you got there: the journey.
The hotel was only a few hundred yards away from the final bus stop and facing to a marine. Very nice indeed. Tomorrow we will try to visit the Old Town and book ourselves a tour to a desert island. The tour was about getting closer to nature, seeing some birds, dolphins and fishes, it should be fun.
