be amazed, there’s more beyond infinity…
when we started this journey, none of us could imagine what to expect. we already had seen photos and read stories from other travelers going up the highest mountain in portugal – the pico island – but, we guess that there always a sense of unreality until we experience it.
a fearless 4-hour expedition through a harsh and paradoxical beautiful trail until we got to the top of the mountain. pico going small at our bottom and the faithful faial as a companion minimized our breathless and fatigued body.
at the top of the mountain, a moon-like crater. but then, we look up and there’s more. a little summit – the real challenge, but it deserves the last effort.
from there the view is unimaginable. surrounded by clouds, playing hide and seek with us, we stayed amazed with the never-ending atlantic and the rest of central groups islands by our foot. the incomprehensible feeling of fullness and abundance it’s not enough to describe what we felt.
going down is worse than going up the mountain. the trail looked a bit unstable, but with steady steps all was ok and we got down. as we descend, the thought of how we get to the top of pico was persistent and, for many times we hardly believe we were there …

an exceptional view of pico and são jorge from our flight to NY – peacefull and almost unattainable, like two silent companions in a long mission.
blurred minds, enchanted hearts,
and still they move –
12 tracks, including music by nicolas jaar, frank ocean and bon iver.
here in this room, this narrow room where life began when we were young last night.
“GOD”, bon iver
hurry up, we’re dreaming is a “must-have” 2011 album, featuring unbeatable tracks like “midnight city“, “reunion“, “wait” and “steve mcqueen“.
“there’s a magic inside
just waiting to burst out
the world is a goldmine
that will melt tomorrow
living for, living for a thrill
just waiting, just waiting!”
hurry up, we’re dreaming, M83 2011
this is all yours is an 2014 album, featuring great tracks such as “hunger of the pine“, “left hand free” and “every other freckle“.
love is the warmest colour
petrol blues, hallelujah, hallelujah
saut dans le vide, my lover
in my youth the greatest tide washed up my prize
i’ll bury my hands deep
into the name of my lover
this is all yours, alt-j 2014
this was a unique moment in which from the rooftop of an abandoned hotel at são miguel, we had the privilege of attending a breathless gold rush sunset showing how small we are in the world. this is a place that never stops surprising us.
