Feeling stressed? Chill out by reading the May 2016 issue of Enjoy the Algarve, Body & Soul!
In it, we focus on how to be zen in the south of Portugal. From yoga (or: how to do the vrikasana pose) and meditation (the Algarve's best spots) to alternative ways like naturism (yes, that's walking around butt naked) and herbalism.
The road to happiness is different for everyone: the pilgrims of the Romería del Rocío honour the Virgen (this event is also worth a visit if you aren't religious), expat Carin Carli swears by a healthy lifestyle, and the Enjoy the Algarve team kicks ass and thus tries taekwondo this month.
This too alternative for you? Just visit the cute town of Alte and feed the ducks to destress. Or, if looking at pretty picture is more your thing, we've got Alexandre Manuel giving tips on atmospheric landscape photography. By the way, do you prefer Sauerkraut or codfish eyes? Our culinary columnist Arthur van Amerongen investigates the saying 'you are what you eat'...
In this month's competition you can win a copy of the children's book Nettles & Roses (it's easy: just send an email to email@example.com), Three Things To Try presents a few ideas for activities and this month's Typical Portugal features some of the cutest donkeys in the world.
