Relaxing in Lagos

My summer trip to Portugal wouldn’t be complete without visiting at least one beach. I knew I had wanted to visit Algarve region on the south of Portugal. Of all the beautiful seaside resorts in the region I chose Lagos as my destination mainly because of all the beautiful pictures of cliffs I had seen on internet. I bought the train tickets online at home through this site, I don’t remember the exact price I paid but it wasn’t extremely expensive. The train goes from Entrecampos station in Lisbon to Tunes and there you have to change for the local train to Lagos, the whole journey was up to 4 hours. Since I didn’t find any couchsurfer in Lagos (I remember there weren’t many people on there so it’s possible I didn’t even try to write them :D) I booked White Sun Hostel for 5 days. I liked the hostel and its location in the city centre and not that far away from the train station.DSCN2006
