My wife and I got to visit to The Azores with our daughter, her husband and his parents. The take-away from our trip was a new enthusiasm for all things Portuguese and for The Azores, Saõ Miguel in particular. It is not the easiest place to get to, flights from the US are limited, but it’s not all the way across the Atlantic so the flight is not that long. It’s also easy to get here from Lisbon.
Check out this video of a hike we took with the amazing guides from Azores4Travel. It was fun hiking around the caldera and then relaxing in the natural hot springs. Elatario was more than a guide, he was a friendly Island ambassador who took his time to show us around and make us feel welcome.
