Whoa I am from Portugal and go there to visit my dad all the time during the holidays, in fact just came back from Easter break!

It is really hot and dry there already so I would take some sun screen and swimmwear already. :)

Get ready for taking off your shoes/trainers at airport security as well and get there really early because the lines got even bigger now for security.

I hope you have a really nice holiday and have as much fun as I had on my adventures when I go there. :P

camera and charger (if applicable)
travel plugs
mozzie stuff and plug ins for the rooms (not sure if its mozzie season yet)
Mobile phone charger - phone provider to ensure cheaper roaming calls in europe!
and HALF the amount of clothes that you think you want!
dont forget a jumper tho (just in case)

And orange squash.
They don't seem to know what it is over there.
And vinegar, if you like. again, I don't think available.

Are you self catering?

What part of Portugal?

Are you hiring a car?

You bought loads,I rarely get to go in Primark and when we go into a town with one like Bromley my partner won't go in as he says the ques are way too long specially if you just want to buy a few items. My cousins children on other hand will not step in there and they wait outside as apparantly everyone at their school would take the mick if you seen going in there!

You could do with taking a basic 1st aid kit too. if its not already mentioned on the link list already on this post.
#16
You sure saved a lot by the looks of it if you got a whole wardrobe just for your holiyda. I tend to go to H and M kids to get some cool clothes. :)

Anyway try to take something to entertain yourself on the airplane like a DS or a book.
#17
Doesn't really bother me and Mrs saxo lol altho we did rush back to the car with the bags and dump them in the boot so know one knew we had been there if we met them while continuing shopping LMAO :giggle: :giggle:

This place is great tho for all your holiday clothes and they have a really good selection just now, Sundays are fine in Dundee its usually Saturdays when it takes like half an hour to get to the checkout.

the dearest item i bought was i think £6, anyone on holiday isnt going to know where you bought the stuff plus with what the portuguese locals wear, when me and Mrs saxo walk down the cobbled road we will look like King and Queen compared to them lol :w00t: :w00t:

primark is good value, esp for the younger kids as they grow sooo quick, i got my daughter a few outfits last week and she loves them!
#20
My children find Londis quite amusing name for a shop,I no idea why but they seem to laugh and joke if I say we going in there.
I remember not going in charity shops when I was younger incase you be seen - don't care now .
#21
well eerrrrrrr, we havent plucked the courage to go into a charity shop yet lol

To be honest with those type of prices in primark i bet you half the stuff is about the same price if not cheaper than a charity shop.

thats what i always do , you need a first aid kit if you have kids.

I remember the BBC doing a 4 page checklist for holidays... i'll try and find it on my HDD

Yes charity shops are expensive specially the ones which are run like businesses and have targets. My partner is manager of a main one,I tell him that you can get t shirts and basic stuff like that cheaper in Primark etc then they sell for but they get these price lists a T shirt starts at whatever price everything like has a price bracket the more better high street shop they from the higher the price. Then you get the charity shops run by just volunteers and they have a lot of 50p rails,my partner says you make no money with them and you better off selling a garment for £2.99.
I ain't personally bothered about going in them no more as I have had some good things I've sold on eBay for more and thats my main reason for going in them these days,I will have used clothing but I'm totally against it for my children as my parents only ever bought me used clothing or had hand me downs from neighbours and family etc so I won't have it.

LOLOLOL We went also today and we got 6 items for £10! Best was a pair of little pink cords for baby for 10p. I thought the marked price of £2 was good!!! Feel a bit guilty though read something about disposable fashion and how harmful shops like primark are to the environment :oops:. Had to go to Debenhams and get some cut price Mathew Williamson stuff to even up the look ;-).


Hmm going away in two weeks. Never thought of a first aid kit.
#29
yeh we also went to a coupl eof places and bought some good clothes just so we dont feel like £10 when going out at night lol
