Thank you so much for stopping by (: Here is a collection of photos I've taken since arriving in Pico. It's already been more than a month here on the island and I'm grateful for my family & friends for making my time memorable.

From the Vulcão dos Capelinhos I made my way back to Horta completing my trip around Faial Island. The next morning I took the earliest ferry over to Velas, São Jorge's capital. I spent 24 hours walking around the town, checking out the viewpoints and making photographs. My initial goal was to backpack São Jorge [...]
Vulcão dos Capelinhos was the most impressive site I visited on Faial Island.

The hike from Salão to Praia do Norte proved to be the hardest part of my week long trip around Faial Island. The road to Praia do Norte inclined steadily with each curve. Though it helped me in the long run, trekking uphill in the cold, grey hills was challenging. The worst part by far [...]

This set of photos is part of a larger collection named Por Caminho that I created during my backpacking [...]

Hey guys, I'm happy to share this collection of photographs with you! Os Mercenários, a rowing team here in the Azores, invited me to come along with them on their afternoon practice! I was beyond excited to accept the opportunity. The entire summer I would see them practice on the outskirts of Lajes' port wondering [...]
