Later on we decided to go and visited The strip or Monte Choro Strip in Portugal, It was described as a long road of nightclubs, bars, restaurants, and cafés serving full English breakfasts that’s buzzing all day and stays that way well into the early hours of the morning.
At 18:00 the Jeep of the Sunset Tour picked us up at our hotel. It was a safari trip from 18:00 till 22:00 with evening diner for 30€ pp. It was so much fun we travel though little villages, stopt at an old castle, we came across a natural swimming pool, past wine and orange farms, Stopt at a brewing station of some kind of alcohol that was 50% not my taste and afterwards some pure honey. We drove further to the top of the mountain to see the Sunset go down, it was amazing to see. 20:00 When the sun was completely down we went to the restaurant. It was super delicious, As starter a soup, main dish chicken and fries, as dessert slices melon and figs. 21:30 Then we raced with the jeep between crazy roads and little mountains until we where back at our hotel.
