    AZORES: HIKING AROUND SETE CIDADES LAKES

    I am fiiiiiinaly back with another blog post from the Azores series. The one I still owe you.  It’s actually about one of our favourite places in Sao Miguel island, so I am asking myself why I haven’t shared it here yet. Better late than never, I guess. I was in a bit strange mood this previous week. Strange – in a good way. A mixture of tired, but feeling very accomplished and content at the same time. This spring was long and cold and I had many goals to accomplish and I can finally say I did the most of them. I feel like now we’re in for a…

    BEST OF 2019

    Writing and sharing a short recap of the past year has become a tradition, so in this post I am sharing my 2019 top moments. You can check out other “Best of” posts I’ve written here: Best of 2017: https://majalampe.com/2018/01/03/best-of-2017/ Best of 2018: https://majalampe.com/2019/01/02/best-of-2018/ I always try to learn something from the past year and one thing I’ve learned during 2019 was indulgence. I’ve learned to work hard on different things at the same time, I’ve learned how to be efficient. I’ve learned I have much more will power than I thought I do and I’ve learned not to stop after I usually would have. My patience had been tested…

    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…

    ROADTRIPPING AROUND THE ISLAND OF MADEIRA

    We did not change our sleeping locations, as some do, because the island is small and you can drive the entire island in just few hours. But, don’t let that “the island is small and you can drive the entire island in just few hours “ fool you when deciding how long your vacation in Madeira should be. We were there for 9 days and still left the island with feeling we could have extended for a few days. Such a small island and so saturated with amazing places to see. It’s like someone would collect the most amazing waterfalls, mountains and woods all together and place them on one…

    THOUGHTS ON 3 YEARS OF BLOGGING

    Wow it’s been a while . I haven’t written a blog post for over a month and that wasn’t the plan. But these things happen to bloggers, right? Wait, am I allowed to call myself a blogger already? WordPress has reminded and congradulated (haha) me for my 3rd blog anniversary! Holy shit, time flies! I have posted 81 blog posts, including this one (God knows I have written quite a few more, but never published them). I can say I am not the most consistent hobby blogger in the World, but hey, I am trying. The most important question is whether I still enjoy writing, sharing my thoughts, photos and…
