Suggestions for end of sept vacation in Algarve (Portugal)? Looking to hike/be outdoors as much as possible.

Rent a car and drive the countryside, stop and hike. It's beautiful. And boring. Probably the most boring countryside in Europe.

You also dont have to go to the countryside to hike. Believe near Cavoeiro there are trails right on coast along the cliffs. Its amazing... I'm sure there are other coastal hiking options as well. Beaches and water are beautiful. Agree with EY1, you will need a car.

How often does your engagement leader pressure you to work while on PTO? Don’t understand why they can’t pull someone else who isn’t on PTO to pickup the work. After all, people are very replaceable in our industry...

I just sit at my desk and stare at my computer. Any recommendations for how to force myself to be productive for the next week or so?

Anyone have managers / leadership (non consulting) who seems disengaged? We all hate micro managers, but on the other side of the spectrum my manager signs on at 10am, doesn’t respond to requests for input, takes a ton of PTO yet still is angry that my project is on fire and gives me tons of extra work, it makes me feel very demotivated - why should I kill myself and work hard if they don’t give a shit, just makes me feel dumb for putting in effort.
