Here we are at our hacienda in the Algarve of Portugal. Our host is Iza, who we met last February. Her family has owned this large piece of land for generations. She has developed it into several units which she rents out to locals and holiday makers. We are two among several other residents. Portuguese, Norwegian, Italian, Belgian, Swedish and English. It's a little international community. We are basically in the middle of nowhere, which suits us at the moment. We had such a long and active season working mostly seven days a week, sometimes 12 hour days. We're quite tired. It's nice to get away to a completely different place and have a chance to recharge our batteries.
