When you say "a few weeks" how long are you planning, I could be interested but need to be back by June.

Depending on your plans and availability perhaps leave the UK in April ?

Hi. Colin. any thing is better than nothing. Funny you should say that as the flat is in Villamoura. I post that it's just out side Faro. Which it is. I will be making the crossing on the 14 of May. You will want to know how much. The flat to share for two is just under £12.50 a day. as a camp site is going to cost you round about 10 euro's a night. That's not too bad. Booking in day is the 17 of May. So is that a case of leave it up to you? The flat will sleep four, two single bed's and two pull down bed's. Let me know what you think?

touring holiday

Hello john , I think after a few days camping the flat would be great i might even decide to stay a second week if that was okay with you , whats most important to me is meeting someone mature genuine and organised and i am sure you are , when you get down there do you park the bike up until your return date or do you do some touring , I am waiting for an appointment for ultrasound on my hand as i had operation for carpell tunnel which never turned out the way it was supposed to they want me in to do the other hand but no way thats happenning lol other than that i am clear , I am easy pleased so I am more than happy just to follow your lead ,I am old school so if i say i will do something i will do it Ii will not let you down and i will pay you prior to you leaving if its best , take care regards colin .

Thanks for replying back. Usually at this part of the post it goe's tit's up. I'll tell you a bit about my self, then you can make your mind up if you can stick me for two week's. as long as your not a cross dressing transvestite axe murdering shirt lifter. We should get on OK. I'm 67, and have a problem with walking. In the way of I'm slow and can't walk a great distance. But if I take my time I can get around. The other thing is I can stick the mile's in when need's call, on the bike. I will be out and about on the bike more day's than not. I'm not a morning person. Get up, a few grunt's, fart, cup of tea, smoke, Then I'm ready. as you can guess I don't suffer fool's gladly. But on the other hand I'm told I'm one of the crazy's person people have meet. In a nice kind of way. as you say if you can pay up front, then I will know you are committed to go. We will talk about that latter. Other arrangement's can be made later. Hope this meet's with your approval.
