    AZORES: ANOTHER FACE OF SÃO MIGUEL ISLAND

    I still owe you a few posts from Azores, the trip we did last year, and it’s better late than ever am I right? Today I am making a bit different post, with a bit different theme or aim. For some of you this post might not be as exciting as other ones, but sometimes I like to switch things around and do something less usual. Azores are one of our favourite places we’ve been to and most credit goes to it’s amazing nature. We love everything that is green, lakes, mountains, forest, gardens and Sao Miguel island has it all. But it also has a very different face that’s…

    AZORES: A PLACE WHERE I SAID “YES”

    Huh, okay here we go again. I can start this post by “it’s been a while”, like any other post I’ve written recently. I had no time to write blog posts on the top of everything else that’s been going on for the last couple of months, so that’s the main reason why there’s been a lack of posts. How original of me, I know. I’ve finally decided to write a bit about our engagement. I know some of you requested I share our story, so that’s what I’m doing. And I don’t want this post to come up as some “blogger sharing their amazing story of how they got…

    DIARIES: WELCOME TO WILD AZORES

    We were ready for another adventure, this time – for the wild Azores. The day we came there scored high in my ” best travel days”. I am trying to find an appropriate word to describe that day, and the word that keeps popping in my brain is “smooth“, so we’ll have to go with that. A flight was a special experience itself. I am a person who still tries to find some romance in flying and all that airport jungle, but for the last couple of years this is really tough. I hate how mass tourism made whole flying experience like a bus ride, just with a lot more…

    A HIKE TO THE HIGHEST PEAK OF MADEIRA: PICO RUIVO

    Hike to Pico Ruivo is probably on every hiker’s bucket list when visiting Madeira, and that’s exactly how it got on our bucket list as well! The most challenging variable of this hike was of course – the weather. If bad weather conditions previously enabled us to have one of the most famous waterfalls in Madeira to ourselves (read more about it here: https://majalampe.com/2019/06/16/madeira-25-fontes-waterfall/) , it was different this time. The main reason behind our decision to hike on Pico Ruivo were promising views over the whole island, so in case of fog there was no point in going. We would check the weather at Pico Ruivo for the next…

    MADEIRA: VISITING BOTANICAL GARDENS

    In my previous post I’ve promised my next one will be about our hike to the highest peak of Madeira, but it’s been a busy week so I am coming to you with a bit less time consuming post. I want to have more time for the post about the hike, I don’t want it to be rushed. To continue the “Madeira series”, one day we’ve visited botanical gardens situated in Funchal, the capital of Madeira. The weather was cloudy, which was perfect for a bit more laid back day. If you follow my blog for some time you might know, regarding to a place we are visiting, we always…
