Photo by @migeophoto // The Azores are a string of small volcanic islands in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. They resemble Hawaii, but they are alive in a witch's brew of weather. Clouds drop in and fly out, commuting across the ocean at high speeds. Wind and rain pop up out of nowhere, and the lush landscape speaks of boundless hydration. Their economy has shifted and evolved from pineapples, to cows, to tourism. With the recent influx of visitors, locals have begun to question how to support the expansion. For Cristina, it is a welcome but worrisome venture. “It’s a little bit scary. I hope we follow the path of nature and sustainable, not mass, tourism. Nature is the most precious thing the islanders have.” Using local wood and other materials, she has crafted beautiful interiors for three small cottages she rents to travelers. Looking out the windows, all you see is a field of wildflowers. // #azores #sustainabletourism #sustainableliving #portugal #azoresislands
