It is the light. When asked about why I love Algarve so much, my first answer is The Light. Bright, clear and warm, depending on the time of day. Especially now in Spring time – Primavera in Portuguese – the variety of light enhances the colors of this new season even more.
Wouldn’t it be much more appropriate for the New Year to start on March 21? For me, this energy feels so much more renewing than December, 31. Maybe I should initiate a global referendum ;).
But for now, happy new Spring year from Algarve!
