On the north shore of Terceira Island, sits a collection of natural pools. Powerful waves crash over the black lava rocks to create the Piscinas Naturales de Biscoitos. During the summer months locals come here to swim. Would you dip your toes in? #azores #naturalpool #naturalpools #visitazores #visitportugal #escapetoauthentic #terceiraisland #cantskipportugal

Portugal Travel: What You Need To Know Now

Before you start travel shaming me, you should know that I was invited to visit by TAP Air Portugal and Azores Getaways to visit in a professional capacity. I went to investigate what they are doing to keep their country safe during COVID-19 as well as to observe Portugal’s travel restrictions and the procedures they are putting in place as they ready themselves for tourism recovery. According to National Health Authority guidelines, this coveted Clean and Safe certification recognizes hotels, restaurants, and businesses as establishments that comply with all of the protocols set forth by Portugal’s National Tourism Authority. TAP Air Portugal Clean & Safe program requires a negative RT PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours of flight departure.

Somewhat surreal to walk down Rua Augusta in Lisbon and have it almost all to ourselves. #visitportugal #portugal #portugaltravel #lisbon #lisboa #lisbonportugal #lisbonpostcards #cityscape #cityescape #ruaaugusta #traveling #travelnow #travelinspiration #travelaroundtheworld #covidtravel #covidtravel2020 #cantskipportugal #travelmassive

Maine's Mid-Coast is calling! A complete visitor's guide to Camden, Maine

16 Bay View is Camden, Maine’s newest luxury hotel. This Camden Maine hotel is part of the Bay View Collection, a local hotel empire that also includes sister properties the Lord Camden Inn, and the waterfront Grand Harbor Inn. In a renovated building that once housed an automobile dealership, a movie theater, and a local bar among other things, 16 Bay View’s hallways are lined with old photos showcasing the history that is part of its heritage. I’d also recommend staying at the 16 Bay View before or after sailing on the Windjammer Angelique which departs from Camden Harbor.

Lisbon is spectacular. And there is no better place to stay in the city than @tivoliavenidaliberdade Not only is it luxurious and perfectly situated for exploring, it is extremely clean and I felt very safe. Everyone was wearing a mask. In fact starting today in Lisbon it is mandatory to even wear mask outside. Did you know that Portugal is the 3rd safest country on the Peace World Index? Plus Portugal was the first to be verified as part of the WTTC clean and safe program. One might even make the argument that because Portugal was already perceived as a safe country and now with the additional certification, it puts them at the forefront of the first countries you should consider when travel resumes. #visitportugal #visitlisbon #visitlisboa #travelsafely #travelsafe #cleanandsafeportugal #cleanandsafe #travelinspiration #travel2021 #leadinghotelsoftheworld #luxurytravel #travelwriter #cantskipportugal

Epic Vermont swimming holes where the locals go.

Located alongside Lincoln Road, Bristol Falls (A.K.A. Bartlett Falls) starts with a waterfall that leads into a small canyon of slow-moving water. If you don’t want to be in the water, the edges are filled with plenty of large rocks and boulders which make great places to sit. Located along the Joiner Brook River, the potholes are made up of a series of five waterfalls that create several separate pools of water. There is no parking allowed along the road however, there is a very small parking lot at the bottom of Bolton Valley Access Road.

Forget about the beautiful landscape of the Azores, I came to feed the baby cows. This farm has 100 jersey cows that produce the creamiest milk that is used to make Quejio Vaquinha, unbelievably good cheese. #visitportugal #visitazores #escapetoauthentic #azoresgetaways #satw #visitazoresislands #azores #visitportugal #workingfarm #travelinspiration #cows #bucketlistideas #getoutofthecar #travelwriter

What to Pack for a Summer Road Trip

If a road trip is in your near future, be sure your packing list includes some of these essential items. This water-resistant nylon, cargo tote is great for the beach, grocery store, or a weekend escape. To keep it to a minimum, I’d carry this no-touch door opener tool with you for contactless entry into any building. My packing list always a high-quality, nylon braided 10 ft long cord.

Overlooking Monte Brazil on the island of Terceira. The views in the Azores just keep getting better and better. Are you ready to plan a trip here yet? @tapairportugal flies to the Azores direct from Boston #azores2021 #azores #explorepage #visitazoresislands #visitportugal #visitazores #traveldeeper #travelinspiration #travelguide #portugal_gems #tlpicks #portugal_lovers #wonderlustportugal #exploringportugal #açores #acores #açoresislands #wonderlustazores #travelmassive

Smack in the middle of a hillside botanical garden, on the island of Terceira, you will find the @caparicaecolodge. The property has six individual cabins named after a female Portuguese artist. Each space is decorated with original pieces from these Azorean artists. What a great way to have a unique, socially distanced experience while staying in the Azores. #azores #ecolodge #ecolodges #visitazores #visitportugal #escapetoauthentic
