Some days later at Arrifana

Now at the youth hostel in Arrifana on the coast again  Yesterday was meant to be a short walk of only 12 kms from Aljezur. Creatively we stretched that to more than 18. Picking up the red and white markers we followed the trail out of town, climbing ever upwards until we could see the sea again. But hang on, it is on our left. It seems we had picked up the Via Algarviana trail by the church and gone in the wrong direction. Back to town. The real trail of the Rota Vicentina also leaves by the church. The other church. The one in the old town. Climbed up to the Aljezur castle. This castle is one of 7 represented on the Portuguese flag. Church, the correct one is 300m from there. Of we go now on the right trail. Nice walk with a couple of breath sapping hills. Ran into our v German friend Jorgen coming the other way. He also is staying at this hostel. A gorgeous, modern hostel it is. Good bar and can provide dinner and breakfast.
