Got a wonderful card from The Azores today! Sent from Portugal but I would love to have a postcard sent from the Azores itself...Maybe someone can help?
This is for me one of the places I most wanted to visit in Europe. The nature on the nine islands is magnificent, it is still not so touristic and you can go there for whale watching....

Found on the internet:For those who love Nature, The Azores are heaven on earth. From the Lakes and lagoons with unbelievable shapes up to the astonishing sights over the ocean; from the deep craters of ancient volcanoes to the purity of the landscapes; from the bucolic harmony to the serenity of silence; Covered in a green, so pure that invokes an image of the lost paradise, The Azores are certain to provide an experience of a lifetime. I think this says it all!!! :-)

The Archipelago of the Azores is composed of nine volcanic islands situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean approximately 1500 km from the European coast and 3900 km from the North American coast.In 1976 the Azores was granted the status of an Autonomous Region.
