6 Things You Should Know About Faro

I’m a huge fan of the Algarve in general. It always surprises that its lovely wee capital city of Faro often gets overlooked as people busy off straight from its airport to the resorts, missing out on its swathe of attractions as they go.  So if you’re thinking of travelling down to the Algarve here are […]
