Hey! I’m Linn Haglund and I’m amused by Algarve!

I’m so glad you’re here because that means that you are too. And if you’re planning your first trip to the Algarve, you’ll soon be.

After living 10 years in Southern Spain, just a few hours from the Algarve, it has become one of my favorite getaways. Each time I go, I explore new corners of this amazing region but also return to the places I love.

Now, I live in my van, and I’m spending most of my time traveling between Algarve in Portugal and Andalucia in Spain.

For outdoor lovers, active travelers, and beach lovers alike, the Algarve has so much to offer and I’m so excited to share it all with you!

Through my curated travel guides, itineraries, and a wide range of travel tips you’ll have everything you need to plan the perfect trip to the Algarve.

In 2021 I bought a van, which means I’ll be spending even more time in the Algarve to create more and better content for you.

When I’m not traveling in Algarve and Andalucia, I explore the rest of the world and work on my travel blog Brainy Backpackers. I also own and run the blog Andalucia Hiking, a resource for hiking in Andalucia.

I hope you’re just as excited as I am for all the awesome content that I’ll share with you on this blog!
