back in the island for a family gathering around one of the ancient religious traditions in azores – the cult of holy spirit – we took the opportunity to continue our journey (re)discovering são miguel. our main objective was to go around the northeast side of the island once last time it was impossible due the mist. and…yes we were lucky! we enjoyed a clear vision of the impressive cliffs and gardens of nordeste and the infinite blue of a silenced atlantic just for us…
nordeste, where green meets blue
we could live by the sea…
all of the light
being at são miguel is almost mandatory, for us, to have dinner at our favourite vegetarian restaurant, rotas. the food continued amazing. from the same group that got up rotas, louvre michaelense was born from recovering an old storehouse and offers us a lot of handcrafted and local products, while you can have a nice coffee by the window.
the nook hostel at ponta delgada was a great choice for the weekend, providing all the comfort and amenities as a family house. in an era of hostel at every corner, the nook is an excellent alternative to a classic hotel.
