Shhh! I’ve found it…the house, the sea…its even got its very own village people – the secret Mama Mia town of the Algarve, Cacela Velha the first stop on our Portuguese road trip!
I ran out of the parked car and started clutching my purse and shouted loudly: “We danced on the beach, and we kissed on the beach, and dot dot dot – dot dot DOT that’s what they did in the olden days!” I turned around, wide eyed and grinning, so full of joy and happiness – Over the cobbled streets, the white houses loomed up ahead. Now, at this moment in time I WAS AMANDA SIEGFRIED.
And then on the wind came: “Abi! Stop being a freak! Hold the camera, I need to pee.”

Mama Mia is one of my favorite films, I’ve seen it dozens of times and it never gets old. Its just a great piece of escapism, full of humor, great songs and a great love stories set in the most idyllic place. What is your favorite film? I really liked the relaxed summer outfits of the actresses in the film and their fun and care free lifestyle. The dress that I wore today has off the shoulder sleeves and I just couldn’t help twirl around in it all day long. I combined it with my pink and gold flats for a semi- Grecian look.
Casella Velha was the first place that we stopped on our Portuguese Road trip. It is very close to the Spanish boarder (Monte Gordo turn off) and is just breathtaking. You can take a boat out to a sand bank island and we ate the best marinated prawns at Casa Velha, really worth having lunch there as the quality and the price was great.
