For those of you wondering, the Azores are a group of islands on the mid-Atlantic ocean ridge that belong to Portugal. They are volcanic islands, and similar to Hawaii, but not tropical. We owe our inspiration to go to Azores entirely to Anthony Bourdain because he went to the Azores on one of his shows. Spain had already been a consideration, so it seemed easy to throw the two destinations together.

When we were looking for a honeymoon destination, we were looking for something that was off-the-beaten path. But, at the same time, we didn’t want to deal with the hassles of something like third-world travel on our honeymoon. So, when we saw Anthony Bourdain’s show on the Azores, we knew that was the perfect spot. I mean, most people in America don’t even know where that is. So, it must be just what we’re looking for 🙂

We have promised ourselves not to spend much time on the Internet while we are on our honeymoon. But, I can promise a couple of updates along the way. So, stay tuned 🙂
