|Crossed the border into Portugal today. Border, what border? cross a bridge and you see a sign that says Portugal. All that is left of the old border control is a large parking area with a police station and a tourist office.
Following advice from another traveller we turned off the motorway and headed for the beach, soon found and area just behind the dunes at Cubeco beach full of motorhomes - we are now wild camping on the eastern Algarve!
Turned out to be very wild camping as we had a huge storm on Saturday night and the rain and high winds continued for the rest of the weekend, fortunatley the dunes protected us from the worst of the wind although we were hit by the occasional pine cone blown off the trees!
