It was the first weekend since the return of British tourists to Portugal. Last week up to five thousand tourists arrived in the Algarve every day following an easing of travel restrictions from some countries.

"Britons are to be barred from entering Germany from Sunday onwards after the country’s Public Health Institute designated the UK as a virus variant area of concern.
As of midnight on 23 May, people travelling to Germany from Great Britain and Northern Ireland may only enter the country if they are a German citizen or resident."
Good old Portugal is allowing as many Brits in as want to come because the hoteliers have applied pressure.
Tally ho the Covid express.
