If you want to extend the summer, come to the "Algarve" (Arabic: the country in the west) in November. Here in the extreme southwest of Europe there are still corners of paradise to discover. Far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we take time for exercise, relaxation, and conversation. We hike on the kilometer-long sandy beach and marvel at the backdrop of the breathtakingly beautiful, orange-colored rocky coast. We visit the typical white villages with their characteristic ornate chimneys, let our eyes wander into the distance over the sea, hike in the Serra, the hilly hinterland or just sit quietly in the sun and experience the meditative tranquility, only accompanied by the sound of the sea.
From November most of the tourists went home, the Algarvios are with a few exceptions to themselves. The heat of summer has given way to a gentle warming, mild sun, and the occasional rain makes the green sprout in the gardens and landscape. Fasting hiking is first about relieving the strain on the soul, body and spirit, which this wonderful landscape invites you to do.
“Keep good things. Leaving out bad things. Avoid superfluous” With this quote from the Dutch botanist and physician Herman Boerhaave in mind, I would like to accompany you through this Lent. Enabling stocktaking and a new direction of our lifestyle.
