We had an amazing time at The Paintshop hostel, and we're looking forward to going back as soon as the traffic lights are green! The intrepid trails were amazing and the surfing was fantastic - Steve & Debbie really made our time in Portugal the very best it could be. Thankyou for looking after us, we'll see you soon we hope.
