Know Before You Go

Research shows that some 70% of people believe that looking into the local laws and customs of their travel destination, before they leave home, would make their holiday more enjoyable. So it comes as no surprise that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is encouraging UK travellers to ‘Know Before You Go!’

Each year British citizens are caught breaking laws overseas and, in the majority of cases, this is merely down to a lack of local knowledge. It is vital that anyone travelling overseas understands the laws of the country they are visiting and appreciates their customs and what is considered appropriate behaviour.

For all of the information you need on country specific laws and customs, take a look at this handy travel advice directory.

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.
