Pineapples 🍍🍍🍍, the Azores

Yes, pineapples were a big part of our trip to the Azores. I didn't know this before we actually left for the Azores, but figured it out soon after coming there. So big, they even have two words (in Portuguese) for pineapple: abacaxi and ananas. The way it was explained to me there, was that... Continue Reading →

Azores, it’s all about the cows

Yes, that title does sound a little crazy. It does, however, cover a big aspect of Azores' life: cows. They are everywhere. Seriously, everywhere. Even on the bigger roads, at some point, there will be cows. They need to be moved from the pasture to the milking place and back. We were just driving along... Continue Reading →

How hard could it be to spot them? Indeed, it was a summer where I was often wrong. We went whale watching from... Continue Reading →

I did however happen across a free little library. With opening times! Unfortunately I was not able to go see it again when it was actually open,... Continue Reading →

Azores Holiday – Accommodations

Instead, I decided to write about some of the more mundane things first. On the Azores, we stayed in 5 different... Continue Reading →

Back to normal

Now that my summer holidays are over, I'm going to start blogging again. I'm going to be doing a couple of book reviews, but I'm going to be writing about our trip to the Azores as well. There is a lot to tell and the few pictures that I posted on Instagram, realld don't do... Continue Reading →

Next weekend, we're flying to Sao Miguel, Azores (Portugal), where we'll be vacationing and island hopping for two weeks. A well deserved, all be it late, summer... Continue Reading →
