another Alegre diary

I can be so lucky. For the second year in a row, I got to stay in the 5-star Alegre Beach Resort and this time it’s free. The company I work for threw in a two-night three-day training seminar and I even got to bring my family with me.

There is little I can add to the review I made last year. The resort is made for luxury living and I could only allow myself to enjoy. The rooms are large, well-appointed and comfortable. Cacing took a liking of the kiddie pool not surprisingly and the well-manicured grounds became her playground too.

Photography is a hunger that must be fed and given the demands of the training sessions, I only had early morning and the evenings free. A thoroughly enjoyable proposition! I got my fix of sunrise and sunset and a bit in between.

If we get to do Alegre next year, that would be something!
