During my first year living at the Azores I realized that the good people inhabiting these islands use every opportunity to celebrate. With Christmas approaching there are more and more enjoyable events to attend for both my family and myself. One of these events was the march of preschool and elementary school aged children dressed as Santa Claus in Riberia Grande. Something that I love about the Azores: the festivals and other celebrations are organized so that they encourage children, teens, and the elderly to actively take part in the event. I have read about this event a few days ago on a Portuguese website (many thanks to the best Portuguese teacher Krisztina - also my new year's resolution is to focus on learning Portuguese), and what I understood was that there will be lots of people dressed as Santa, and it takes place in Riberia Grande.

WINE IN AZORES 2017 Gastronomy Festival Review and Recommendation for Azores Visitors in October

This post is one of my favourites on the blog. According to my first university degree I am a Food Safety Quality Engineer, which means I am very curious and interested about everything concerning food quality. I also used to work as a quality engineer in this field, with the main areas of focus being fruits and vegetables. However, I don't have that much experience concerning wine quality, so please bear with me if my wine-related vocabulary is not impeccable.


At the end of October as a part of a smaller Hungarian group I had the chance to visit the WINE IN AZORES 2017 Portuguese wine & food tasting event on Sao Miguel. Those 3 evenings we spent at the event inspired this post. All in all it has been a great event and we tasted exceptionally good wines. You can find out about my experiences at this event in an upcoming series of posts - with this post being the first one. I sincerely hope that visiting WINE IN AZORES will be a must see on the agenda of every traveler visiting the Azores in the month of October.

Gluten-free cakes from SweetDelight Budapest which I miss immensely when at the Azores

This post is a new addition to the series of posts about gluten-free Hungarian shops & restaurants and about people who make excellent gluten-free products - which I dearly miss whenever I am at the Azores. I am very fortunate to have a good few non-Hungarian followers who will hopefully appreciate this ever increasing list of things they need to try when they visit Budapest.

Today I would like to introduce you to the wonderful gluten-free cakes of SweetDelight Budapest and to the lady behind it, "cake magician" Dóri Nyerges

Two in One - How to effortlessly enhance a trip to the Azores with a tour of Lisbon

I would like to recommend a great way to complement your trip to the Azores with no extra travel.

Every time I was flying to the Azores I had a stopover in Lisbon. I did not want to waste my time waiting at the airport, so I always decided to have a look around in the city. So it was just me and my guide book, trying to make the most of my stay in this wonderful city - but somehow it did not feel right. Even though I have seen a lot, I did not have the full picture of Lisbon, and how this city truly is. I have to admit I felt a little disappointed, especially after doing my homework and reading so many good things about the capital of Portugal. However, the last time my friend Virag and myself were in Lisbon, another friend of mine, Krisztina - who is a tour guide and has been living in Lisbon for 9 years - took us for a 3.5 hours long sightseeing tour.

About me
Hello, I am Rita. Bioengineer, marketing manager, and so much more. My first trip to the Azores has been so wonderful I have decided to move here. Since I have found very little information about the Azores in Hungarian, I have decided to start a blog collecting hints and providing advice to help fellow travelers. My aim is to motivate more people to go on vacation to the Azores, to help and assist fellow travelers, and finally through my adventures provide more information about this beautiful place. Please take a look around, and let me know if you have a question. I will do my utmost to provide an answer.

Who is the blog for?
This website is dedicated to my family and friends - to reassure them that I am doing well and enjoying my new life - and of course to everyone who wants to know more about the Azores, especially about the islands Sao Miguel and Furnas. This website might also be the starting point to plan a vacation or a wedding at the Azores. With my posts and the information contained within I would like to help every traveller to have the time of their lives when visiting the Azores. For foodies who would like to eat like a local or want to find the best restaurants on the isles, and also for people with food intolerance or allergies I recommend the posts in the section "BIO Girl in the Azores".
