Portugal, a piece of heaven

DSC_0701

This summer, I discovered a small part of Portugal and I promised myself to return next year. Wonderful landscape, beaches, ocean, restaurants, food and people. I visited Albufeira, in Algarve and had a 6 hours boat trip to see the famous caves…What a beauty! Beautiful clear blue water and small cozy beaches, where you can go only with a small boat. I saw Cathedral Cave, one of the must seen things in this world. It took my breathe away, even if we couldn’t spend more time there and our boat only entered a little in the cave…Nature can make wonders for sure! I strongly recommend this boat trip because it’s all worth it. We also had a barbecue with fresh fish and salad…What a perfect day!

This wasn’t our boat…but it looked so nice :)

And I save the best for last!  I am a very big animal lover and I am touched by every lovely creature around me. One of my biggest dreams was to swim with the dolphins…but since I am not such a good swimmer, I had to find a shortcut :) I knew that in Algarve, Portugal, it’s Zoomarine and the only place in Europe to have real contact with them.

First I watched their show in the water and I was able to quietly observe their beauty, joy and greatness. I was a little shocked by their size, as I thought they would be a little smaller, and by their soft touchy look.  I had big emotions from the moment they started playing in the pool, till the end…and had some tears in my eyes. I couldn’t believe I was so lucky to see this and be a part of such a wonderful moment! If only pictures could speak and pass feelings…

I cannot describe in words how excited and touched I was by their entire wonderful creature. At the end of the show I was able to touch one of them and make a photo. I had such big emotions and my heart was beating very fast…I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. I wanted to freeze the moment and enjoy it longer…Afterwards, I was just speechless! It was one of the most beautiful and perfect days of my life!

Here is only one part of the magic photo.
