Listen to an airline pilot's story. Chris has been working as a pilot for the past 8 years on the 737 and arrived in the Algarve three years ago. He is based in Faro and flies out of our International Airport every morning bound for foreign lands and returns every afternoon. It’s a job that allows a sense of normality instead of the usual crazy hours that airline pilots often need to keep.
Additionally there are four days off every five days. Now that DOES sound like the best job in the Algarve. Listen to Chris to see if it’s really true.

Back in November 2015 Mauro, myself (Nick Robinson) and Spike Reid set off from Sagres in the south west and took 6 nights to stand up paddle across the Algarve. To our knowledge it had never been done before. Find out how we felt and what transpired as we endured this near week long journey.
