“Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going” Tennessee Williams
It’s been a busy 2-3 months on the blog, so I thought it would be useful to have a quick round-up of some of my favourite posts, images and links of the last couple of months – so grab a cup of tea (or a glass of wine!), sit back, click on the images to find the links and enjoy!
One of the posts I have recently enjoyed the most is this one:

We were very sad to report about the terrible blaze that recently destroyed the shopping centre at Portimão – with its resulting loss of jobs and shops:
Guides and Information
We like to try and give you information that is useful – and on this recent post we had a go at answering two of the most popular questions we are asked – when to visit the Algarve – and what’s the weather like?
If there are questions you would like to see us tackle – just add them in the comments box below!
There have been so many! Thank you to everyone that takes the time to comment on the blog – we really do appreciate every single comment! (And we always try to reply to each one)
Here are some that we have particularly enjoyed reading and replying to this time:
“I love the new year ice cream. A tradition well worth establishing :) ”
“So many wonderful things to see all during the year (stork families, festivals, cliff-top walks), which all makes it hard to decide when to visit. I guess the only solution is to make several trips at different times of year. Thank you for such an informative post and lovely pics.”
“And someone hasn’t tapped you to do paid travel advertisements? What’s wrong with them! I’m not much of a traveler, for many reasons, but I would be so tempted to come your way. You have shared so many lovely reasons why! :) ”
“I enjoyed reading this, brought a smile to my face – wish all people all over the world could be the same.”
“OH Alyson – you´ve got the whole of the Algarve joining in with this month´s theme. How wonderful! As soon as I decide that one of your photographs will be my favourite, the next one just blows me away.”
“So what I get from this is, so long as you don’t mind the odd rain shower, there’s no wrong time to visit the Algarve :) ”
A difficult one as there are so many to choose from – however I have selected this one for you:
We hope that you have enjoyed all the links and posts – and don’t forget to give us a quick review on the ExpatsBlog page – thanks everyone!
See you again soon!
