Walfänger Haus auf Pico

Unique accommodations on the Azores

In my last post I already spoke about my love for the Azores. The rough, green nature of the islands has inspired me. In this post I would like to show you two of our (very) short-term homes on the Azores. These were absolutely unique. They could not have been more different, but they were both beautiful and we would have liked to have spent more time in each. On the one hand there was the former whaling house on Pico and on the other hand our glamping tent in the middle of a banana forest on Faial.

Porto: The Port of Nostalgia

Porto – in my heart it’s my second home. Even when I first traveled to Porto 2010 and was waiting for the metro at the airport, I felt a soft feeling of comfort in my body and I knew “I’m home!”. Since that day, I have experienced many unforgettable moments in the small town at the outfall of the Douro River, which have linked me more and more to the city. My friends often ask me, “What is so special about Porto?” There are millions of answers to this question. Countless Travel Magazines have been talking about Porto as “insiders tip” for several years. Porto is not a secret anymore, but it’s still a tip! Therefore I would like to tell you some of my reasons why you must travel to Porto!
