Surfing in Sagres

An early design decision around the heating strategy in our van (“just go south”) naturally led us to spend the coldest winter time in the south of Portugal. A very nice place to spend the winter and a very good time to visit. Apart from some camper people with similar winter plans (“just go where it’s warmest”) and a lot of avid surfers, it was pretty quiet.

Apart from surfers we can also meet plenty of fishermen, dangerously competing with seagulls on top of steep sea cliffs.

It’s a beatiful place where you don’t feel different, living out of your car.

Note: there’s also cool sea cliff climbing, but I didn’t take any pictures of that. If that sounds interesting, you should reach out to a great adventure agency in Lagos where you can organise your trip, or buy a wonderful climbing guide for Portugal. I can’t really stress enough how well-designed this climbing guide is.
