Basecamp Challenge! Describing Algarve in one word. - via Travel Basecamp 19.11.2015 | We challenged the people we met in Algarve to describe this amazing region of Portugal in one word, and it proved quite difficult! Paradise, beautiful, gorgeous, sparkles, sun, beaches, excitement, people, food, dream and best are words that were used. While an image is worth a thousand words, a video should be worth 100,000! Watch to see for yourself how the Algarve is the best place in the world.
