Portugal 2006 - Algarve

Flickr Friday – Algarve

With much of Europe experiencing below freezing temperatures and icy winds, this Flickr Friday we explore an area with one of the most stable climates in the world. Because of its proximity to North Africa, and thanks to sitting comfortably on the Mediterranean coast, the Algarve region of Portugal makes for one of the best spots in Europe to thaw out.

So sit back, imagine the warming sunshine caressing your skin and enjoy this collection of unusual angles to view this stunning place.
