Hiking The Beautiful Hills of Sao Jorge

#276 It's truly one of the best walks we have done. What is this place?? We go on a massive descent down the hills of Sao Jorge, hiking on to a little surf village. The Azores have been dotted by these beautiful settlements by the sea but this one might just take the cake. Possibly because it took such a big effort to get there. The people living there are seriously remote, what a place to live.
The Azores though, seriously, nicest people you'll meet in the world. We've been helped out of a jam more than a couple times, thanks once again to the kind folk of the middle Atlantic. And thank you guys for tuning in with us today!

    When I was a child they didn't even have seat belts in cars we rode in the back of pick up trucks and I hardly ever wore a helmet on my dirt bike unless I was racing and neither did anyone else in my generation so just do what your gonna do it's your child rase him best as you can and don't stress about it

    I was gonna hop on to give you shit about hiking in remote places in flip flops, but I see everyone beat me to it. I lived in colorado where newbies would set out to climb a fourteener with no water, in flip flops. Not a week went by without having to haul broken/sprained ankles off the mountain, often by helicopter. Beautiful location tho. Sorry about the bilge, bad timing.

One other thing Eleyna, I have never seen such beauty and grace as you display. My goodness you are a very rare creature indeed. I am truly awestruck by your beauty and charm....what a lesson for all of us. Thank you.

    My God, I hate that you would even need to explain any of this to the snow flakes on youtube. We lived on horseback with no damn helmets, all our lives in our culture. A quad is a "walk in the park" (safe) compared to EVEN walking. It's not like you're going 55 miles down an open highway on a motorcycle. GOOD GRIEF! Screw these morons.

You both are so blessed to have Lenny. ❤️ 💕 Out of all the sailing channels I’ve watched , Andre & Nikki stand out in my eyes as hero’s & I’m serious because the voyage with Greta was no small voyage.

    everything is visually stimulating for you if all your accustomed too is shades of blue, Lenny saw a new colors - Green... and variety that he is not used to seeing. until he returns to the sea and the desolation that brings. Its wonderful the stars you have all become, and learning how your reach has gone so far. (Riley being asked if he sails- OMG- that must be a wonderful feeling that your media has impact and is recognizable- you guys are doing a wonderful job.)

    At least that boy as less chances to become an in house plant that sticks to a screen all day. The only thing, for any off you would be to use better shoes than flip flops. Also any idiot that would complain about the fact that none of you including the kid didn’t have a helmet on the quad should leave the city once in a while and try to live a real life.

    just found your channel recently, and love it. Went back watched some older episodes, pre Lenny. What a difference. You guys were so full of life then, nothing was too big for you. I know from experience how having kids sobers a person. But seeing the contrast between 5 yrs ago and now, pls consider a long shore stay. You guys just look weary. I could be full of shit, but thats what I see. Get a house, buy a car, take a long break. Sailing will always be there for you. Handsome family. Good luck, regardless !

    I've seen family's of 5 with a tiny little newborn baby and 2 toddlers on ONE motor bike in insane traffic in Laos (South East Asia ) ... personally I almost freaked out about how unsafe it was (no helmets) but then I reminded myself, its not my place to cast judgement on anyone. Different cultures do things differently. If Lenny drank soda pop and watched tv and played video games all day in a dark room until he was 18 he would be more messed up than one fall off of a motor cycle could probably do to him. Its about perspective

    Lenny has good parents. When I was small, I'm told there was a dent in the dashboard of my parents' car, made by my head when my dad had to stop short to avoid a collision. From back when dashboards were made of metal. I'm sure that smarted a bit. Riley and Elayna, I've really enjoyed watching your journeys. You are blessed to be living this life you've chosen, and it is inspiring to all of us.
