Back in March we held several competitions while at the TNT Travel Show in London and one of them was the ‘Discover the Azores – Portugal’ competition which was kindly offered by Pousadas de Juventude.
The competition included a trip to the Azores including flight and a one week stay in Ponta Delgada Youth Hostel on the beautiful island of São Miguel. The prize also included a free dolphin and whale trip. Well done to Rafael Cooper who was the lucky winner of this fabulous prize!
The Archipelago of the Azores consists of nine volcanic islands located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, 1000 miles west of Portugal and this is where we sent him. Rafael is 27 from Australia and he kindly sent us these wonderful photos of his travels around the island. Now the Azores may be off the beaten track, but it sure is one hell of a destination if you can make it there. We’ll let Rafael show you his travel experience through the photos he took. Over to you Rafael!
