RS added an Azores experience this year which we're signed up for. How was the trip for the March participants; in particular how was the SATA Airlines flight from Boston to Ponta Delgada??
I have traveled to Ponta Delgada a dozen or so times, the flight from Boston to Ponta Delgada is a great flight, but it always flies at night so bring comfy clothes and take nap. The island of Sao Miguel is paradise, it has many lakes to discover and trails to trek, many of the regional traditional dishes are fish based and delicious, but don't worry, the meat eaters will be too to right at home. Don't be afraid to explore, you will not regret it.
