Travelling to the azores by plane from Greece is hard enough, not to think how it would have been by sailing boat, the first impression was kind of cold and cloudy, but also beautiful, green with high cliffs and a beautiful landscape! After landing in Terceira at night we made it on a ‘rough’ sail to Craciosa, ok it wasn’t rough, not at all but for me and Argyro it was. We both got sea sick feeding the fishes, witch worked and we got already on the first day to see a blue whale and some sperm whales. We first thought we just were lucky but it was the abundance of whales and our good visions which gave as the pleasure to see many amazing whales, dolphins, turtles and even a shark or something similar. All islands (Terceira, Craciosa, Faial, Pico and Sao Jorge) are really beautiful. All have nice Caldeiras or what is left of the existing dynamics which created this group of islands in the middle of the Atlantic ridge. They have lot of green nice paths and sometimes also nice waves. The weather is strange; either cold or hot, clouds and rain come and go. But in overall its quite comfortable. The pictures should tell you the rest. For sure we all really enjoyed it !
