The January 2017 issue of Enjoy the Algarve, Make a change, is out now! Read it here and please feel free to share with all your friends. In it, we focus on people who improve the south of Portugal. Like our cover star, marine biologist Carla Lourenço who organises beach clean-ups with Straw Patrol.
There’s Kerry Gross and Faith Clements of AEZA who neuter countless stray dogs (and try to convince Portuguese men it isn’t their manhood that’s chopped off along the way) and many wildlife conservation centres who do their bit for birds or lynxes. Even our columnist Arthur van Amerongen joins in and promises to clean dog cages (he actually likes his beaches dirty as it keeps the tourists away).
Planning to live healthier this year? What about growing your own food? We talked to Chris Lewis who takes home-grown to the max with a gigantic veggie garden and a developing food forest.
Plus: bird photography tips from Thijs Valkenburg, flexpat James Cave (he makes the travel blog the Portugalist with his girlfriend Jemma) talks about why arriving at Faro airport is just amazing, and we bring you nine things you shouldn’t miss in Carrapateira.
