    Claus, thank you for your interesting and useful tips. Reading your page, I realise again why the Azores are for many years allready at the top of my list. Sao Miguel in the upcoming week will be a good start to explore the Azores.

    Excellent page, Claus! I would also take a drive along the coast to watch excellent views over the sea and play domino after it...

    What a stunning view over Lagoa de Fogo! Looks like you visited many beautiful plazes on Ilha de São Miguel! The Azores is high on my wishlist of places to visit.
