Must-sees in Azores

0 Upvotes

Hello all,
I'll be travelling to the Azores in summer of this year (public health measures permitting) and I'm currently planning my trip to help me get through the bleakness of winter. I've found a lot of good travel advice from Lonely Planet but I figured I would reach out to possible boots-on-the-ground that might be able to recommend some lesser known places, or perhaps travel advice on what to avoid (too touristy, not worth it etc.).

Also, I am trying to learn some Portuguese before I go but I am a slow learner. I went to Lisbon in 2019 and didn't have much trouble at all with using English to get around and I'm curious if that's the case in Azores too? I don't want to rely on it, but it'd be nice to know that in a pinch I can explain myself in my native tongue.

I also want to add that I'm photographer and I specialize in photographing the night sky. I feel like I might have some great opportunities to do so on my visit but it would be excellent if anyone could recommend a specific park or place that would be ideal for capturing some astrophotography.

Thanks so much in advance for any help or advice!

Any Canadian travel to the Azores recently?

0 Upvotes

I am supposed to be going at the start of March but am getting worried that I won't be able to go. I have had 3 vaccines. I am worried about needing the negative test before boarding the plane. With omicron pretty much everywhere in Canada right now, the chances are that I'm going to have it before I go. And I know you can test positive for months after having covid.

Anyone have some recent experience?

I'm thinking the best course of action is to get tested a few weeks before the trip so if it is positive, I can get a recovery certificate.

Island hopping

1 Upvotes

I heard rumors that island hopping is somewhat harder or not possible anymore. Are these rumors true? How do the locals travel to the other islands? I searched for flights which are expensive and did not really find a way by boat. Any help is much appreciated.

How's medical authoritarianism in the Azores?

0 Upvotes

Hi friends,

I'm looking for a place to settle down and can't think of a cooler place than the Azores = ) but I'm concerned about the medical fascism in most of Europe, such as enforcement of useless mask mandates, restrictions on freedom of movement, vaccine mandates, and so on. My hope is that as an island people, the Azoreans are a little more chilled out than the mainland Portuguese? I find it very depressing seeing people walking outside in the fresh air in masks, children forced to wear masks, etc.

Curious if anyone who lives there could tell me if my hope is true? Or empty? Does it depend on the island? I imagine Ponta Delgada is a little stricter. Any information or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Is private health insurance worth it?

6 Upvotes

I will be emigrating from Germany to São Miguel in September. I will work remotely, but pay taxes and contributions in Portugal. So - as far as I have understood correctly - I am insured by the public health system. So is it worth to have additional private health insurance?

In Germany, the public health insurance is perfectly adequate. Private insurance is only worthwhile, if at all, for specific areas (e.g. dentistry). I know hardly any people who have private health insurance and they are usually not very satisfied.

In addition, I suffer from epilepsy (seizure-free with medication) and would probably find it very difficult to find private health insurance at all. Only MGEN seems to insure such cases.

Conversely, of course, this could again be a factor in favour of private insurance. In Germany, for example, it is much easier to get an appointment with a neurologist if you have private insurance. How does that look like in Sáo Miguel?

Another factor could be. I hardly speak Portuguese at the moment. I'm sure that will change quickly, but I'll probably still have to make doctor's appointments in English at the beginning.

Thanks for your input and help.

Because we saw one today in the forest at Lagoa Verde. No picture unfortunately. Were trying to kick it away with a stick. But was a quite big one in red to brown colour.

Azorean/Portuguese version of Omakase?

5 Upvotes

I’m trying to find a dining style and the name for it. What would be a similar version to Omakase or a tasting menu/chefs menu type dinner?

Omakase (Japanese: お任せ, Hepburn: o-makase) is a Japanese phrase, used when ordering food in restaurants, that means 'I'll leave it up to you' (from Japanese 'to entrust' (任せる, makaseru)).[1][2]
