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!

    remember the queen doesn't wear a riding hat when she's riding her horses. And cowboys and Indians dont wear helmets. Also ... its a quad bike ... so dont worry about little Lenny having a ride on a quad bike without a helmet. x

    I love how they treat each other 💕 Elayna just chuckling walking in the dark sending Lenny on the random motor bike. No one nagging or blaming each other. That’s the way it should be! Lenny is learning by example how to treat loved ones...what’s more valuable than that?!

    I think that there's ALWAYS going to be people to criticize, no matter what you do. In my humble, yet vastly experienced opinion...... as that little boy grows up, and meets people his own age, those other kids are going to be wowed by how bright and well rounded Lenny is, because of all the adventure he's had. He may end up being the one that makes great discoveries, because of his imagination.

    It has some resemblances with Hawai but with the Hawai before it was spoiled with over construction and pollution by the Americans. This is what I heard Americans say. Hopefully Azores will continue mostly remote and not a tourist attraction.

    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.
