Starting a blog is the best side hustle I have ever done to earn extra money! I was able to set up and start a blog for really cheap and then I made over $13,000 in less than six months as a new blogger.
Algarve, Portugal had about 360 days of sun a year. Can be chilly during winter. Portimao is very nice, with both anchoring and marina. Lagos is also nice, but I would have choosen Portimao. About 45 min car ride to Faro International Airport, and a couple of hours to Lisbon.
