1,000 miles west of Lisbon, Portugal are the Azores. These islands are like the Hawaii of the Atlantic: lush, elevated, and in the middle of the ocean.
I visited a tea plantation, a waterfall and swam in some very cold water…

We’re in the middle of a tea plantation right now. One thousand miles west of Lisbon, Portugal-right there-are these islands known as the Azores. They’re like the Hawaii of the Atlantic. We’re on the biggest one, San Miguel.
Right here is where our cruise ship docked. First step, we had to rent a car, not pictured. That’s Theresa. It’s pronounced Azores, but we didn’t really know.
We’re driving now and driving and then I’m walking through a tea plantation. This is the largest and maybe only tea plantation. We are going in there.
We are inside the tea factory now where you can see the machinery that’s used during harvest season. We even got to touch the tea, oh wait….There’s our squad. Left to right…Theresa, Me, Ben, Tynan.
Greetings! We’re at the tea factory and we’re going to get some tea right now. Mmmm delicious. Before we left we thought it would be funny to film a video of all us back here. Here is our camerawoman, Theresa. Hey Theresa. Next stop on our journey, to go to a waterfall.
With our trusty Google maps we headed off for a beautiful drive. Hey Ben, where we at? Wow, we just arrived at a tropical rainforest! Welcome to the Parque Natural Da Ribeira Dos Caldeiroes Natural Park.
Let’s go see some nature. What’s up squad! Speaking of nature here’s-wait a second-Ben’s tattoo look’s just like this plant! Tynan, jump up. Next, we came to the waterfall as we’re hiking around the National Park. We are at the bottom of the hiking path. I got my bathing suit and my goggles. We’re going fish hunting. There’s a fish! It is so cold. Ben also got in the water, but sort of unwillingly. That was actually really awesome. That was awesome.
We’re hiking back now. We hiked up this incredibly steep and slippery slope through a beautiful vista and then we saw all these cows on the drive back. And now we are back on the ship. I took a shower and I feel all nice now.
