Lisbon has a long and varied history as a major trading hub, much of which is still visible in the old city centre. Discover Alfama, the old quarters with its many old alleys, steps and the Lisbon Cathedral. The famous tram line 28 will get you there – an experience in and of itself. And be sure to check out a fado concert if you want to learn about saudade – loss, yearning and comfort, all rolled into one. Emotions that all seafarers will get to know one way or the other…
Sao Miguel in the Azores is also known as The Green Island – and for a good reason! If you love nature, hiking and taking in beautiful vistas, this is the place to visit. You can rent quads and go canyoning. There are also interesting museums and research places dedicated to the volcanic nature of the islands – visit them and you will almost certainly learn something new.
