A month ago we (finally) left for our honeymoon, to the Green Island (Sao Miguel, Azores). It was my first „island holiday”: I arrived like an island virgin & left like an island lover. The wonderful landscapes, the total absence of city life (no shopping to do, no m’as-tu-vu spots) and laid-back lifestyle (which I suppose is typical of small islands, far away from hectic mainland life) made this vacation one of the best summer breaks ever. Still this doesn't mean that Le Hubby and I have been lazy bones. On a scooter we explored the island, to enjoy the wonders of nature it has to offer.
One week away from the mainland felt great and I came back reloaded, ready to do some city tripping (Paris and Lille) before going back to work mid-August.

|Lagoa de Fogo, having our heads in the clouds. Literally.|
|Gorreana Tea Plantation, the one and only in Europe so far.|
