August in Algarve

Holliday people happy; Sun, beach & drinks. No stress. Relax holliday.

Local people not so happy; No ham, no cheese, no nothing.

Empty shelves in the supermarkeds. Stress. Nightmare.

It´s like it´s a big surprise that all the portuguese and half of Europe

takes a holliday in August, every year!

Did I mention that this happens every year?

So me stay home, and eat what I have in the freezer, and come out in September.

My man is still in shock after standing in a supermarked-line for almost 2 hours,

with melting ice cream…which he changed for a frozen one just in time!

He is not going shopping any time soon!

So come and visit, but not in August!

Tourists and locals living happy together in August?
