So I’m sat in a beautiful hotel in the Azores and my itchy fingers have brought me back to my soon to be working website. If you are looking for beauty, peace and friendly people this is a great place to visit. I especially loved Lagoa das Sete Cidades where there is a twin lake situated in the crater of a dormant volcano on the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores. There is a romantic and sad story… The story goes that the beautiful Princess and the shepherd boy fell in love but the grumpy King would not let them be together. They were heartbroken… and when she told him that they would never see each again they cried until their tears formed two beautiful lakes. One was green, the same colour as the Princess’s eyes and the other lake was blue,the same colour as the shepard’s eyes.
It’s so sad when love doesn’t win over. But the lakes are a real sight to see and I do believe that they will be on the NEW list of the 7 wonders of the world!
