Azores - 2005
I decided to make a slightly different trip to the island of
Sao Miguel in Azores: since the island was fairly small it
did not make any sense to change hotel all the time. So this
time I took my old trusted Samsonite instead of backpack and
booked a 3-star hotel from the small village of Povoacao.
This proved to be an excellent choice since the whole island
(especially Povoacao) was one of the most beautiful and
fascinating places I've ever been to. The nature and the
scenery was unbelievable - and the variety of different
flowers, trees and terrains was amazing.
I did lots of hiking and some cycling during my one-week
stay there. For beachlife and partying Azores is not the
place to be but for chilling out, hiking and enjoying the beauty of
nature it is a perfect location.
