Portugal...Oh My Heavens It's Pretty / by Julie Holder

7 days in the Algarve region of Portugal after leaving Marrakech.  We climbed soaring cliffs, took a boat through ancient sea caves, swam in the ocean, I fell off a boat, and we met the only two Americans we saw on our trip... who happen to own an incredibly cute vintage store in Brooklyn around the corner from where we used to live.  It's a small, beautiful world.
