Last June when we finished the school year, we started the long trek from Kuwait back to Minnesota. The school books our flights to and from Kuwait each year, and they usually book all of our flights using Lufthansa Air. Lufthansa has a sweet policy on layovers. Here’s how it works: when you book a flight with Lufthansa you can extend your layovers for FREE. Meaning that our flight path took us from Kuwait to Frankfurt before it took us back to the U.S. Using Lufthansa’s layover policy we were able to extend our stay in Europe for 6 days to soak up some time on the beaches of Portugal, before we headed home for our whirl wind of a summer. We convinced six of our friends to join us on the Southern Coast of Portugal, in an area known as Algarve. We rented a beach house with amazing views for dirt cheap. Our vacation began once we landed in Lisbon, where we grabbed two rental cars and drove a few hours from the capital, down to the beach.
We very purposefully planned nothing to do on this vacation! We just enjoyed the stunning views over the ocean, played cards, bar-b-qued, and stayed up late listening to music and laughing with friends.
My words aren’t really going to be able to describe how beautiful this area was, so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.
Friends + Sunshine + Exploring a New Country = a Fantastic Vacation Thanks for the great time crew, I would travel with any of you, anywhere, anytime.
