Every trip must come to an end at some point ...
Transamerica 2021 Update
After the highlight of this trip spending a few days in Costa Rica and, as a surprise, a side journey to Nicaragua, we have been flying eastwards since Thursday morning. Fuel and rest stops in the Turks and Caicos as well as Bermuda brought us to the Azores. This last leg was certainly memorable as it was probably the first time a Pilatus PC-24 did this long trip lasting over 4 ½ hours across the Atlantic.
The Azores, neglected by many, were also a positive surprise. We found a nice island with many activities to keep visitors busy for a week with (volcano)hiking, cycling, whale watching or just enjoying pleasant times in the middle of the Atlantic. It is also notable that the culinary experience is on a high level at affordable prices and, last but not least, it feels almost like being in Europe already. One can say that EU funds were put to good work in this instance.
Every expedition comes to an end and we are grateful that we were able to travel the planned route with one exception during these special times, and I am not using the word here.
The team worked flawlessly together again without any glitches while at the same time every member is looking forward to be home, as it should be, living in paradise all year long.
I would like to raise my glass to all of you out there for following us with all the feedback including felt impatience when the next blog was going to be online. 🙏
And remember, after the trip is before the trip.😎
In the meantime, friendly skies
