While in Portugal with our kids this past summer we had plenty of sun days and pool days and even a couple of beach days but we got to the point where we were all done with lazing in the sun. So what did we do instead? We went zip-lining at the very fun Algarve Adventure Park in Albufeira. This turned out to be an excellent choice for our group of kids ranging in age from five to 15.
After the friendly and helpful French instructors kitted us out with harnesses and gave us necessary safety instructions we were off – with the littlest leading the way.
My niece, C, at 5 and diminutive, was fearless on the ropes. All the trails at the park are color-coded by height and ability which was helpful for steering the younger kids to lines they could safely manage alone.
Or sometimes with a helping hand from their older cousin.

The schools will be out (again!) in the next couple of weeks for mid-winter break. This is usually the time when I start thinking about what to do or where to go for Spring Break. My boys are in different schools (elementary and middle) so some years their Spring Break happens on different weeks – which is a royal nuisance. But when the school closure dates line up, April is a great time of the year to take advantage of lower prices for airfares between the U.S. and Europe. Here’s a selection of photos from our trip to the Algarve in Portugal in 2007. I love Ireland and always love getting to hang out with family, but it’s wet and windy in April. So, family members joined us in Portugal where it was fairly warm, with bright sunny days – and, as you can see, brought smiles all around.
