Azoreans Put the P in Party!

Christmas, in the Azores, was traditionally a time when locals would make liqueurs, cakes and sweets and invite neighbours around to taste the fruit of their labours. As the drinks were made in honour of the baby Jesus, their pouring was referred to as "O Menino Mija" - the baby Jesus passing water!

Although homemade liqueurs are no longer a key feature of Christmas traditions here, Azoreans still invite friends and relatives to their homes to participate in "O Menino Mija" by enjoying a drink and a piece of Christmas cake!

Discover Azorean traditions for yourself, when you travel with us to these wonderful volcanic islands.

Ploughing His Own Furrow in Iceland

Many of us long to tour Iceland – indeed, with the stunning scenery, amazing natural attractions and fabulous geological wonders here, it’s the perfect destination for a self drive holiday. But where most of us would opt for a comfortable hire car to get out and about in Iceland, retired theatre technician Reiner Huttasch is exploring the country on his 54 year old Buhler tractor!

Expecting to spend around six weeks in the country - travelling at just 20mph and sleeping in a self-built mobile home he tows behind his tractor - Reiner’s trip through Iceland is just one leg of a much longer journey through Germany, Denmark, the UK, Belgium and France. More...
