The Archipelago of the Azores: a lost paradise

I spent the past two weeks in one of the most amazing travel destinations I have ever been to. The Archipelago of the Azores is composed of nine volcanic islands situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, and is located about 1,500 km (930 mi) west from the European coast, and about 3,900 km (2,400 mi) from the east coast of North America.

The Portugese Islands are as diverse as they are stunning. One moment you think you’ve landed in a set for the next Jurassic Park film; shortly after, you wander around between cows like you’re in the European alps, or along a deserted windy lava coastline. And for a treat, you can take a hot bath in a steaming volcanic spring surrounded by a lush tropical flora. They say the Azores offers it all: whale watching, canyoning, kayaking in beautiful volcanic lakes, hiking along stunning coastlines, more waterfalls than you can count, and all of it without being eaten alive by mosquitos. I took a couple of photos and shared them on a tumblr, for those of you who are interested in seeing more.
