Everyone has heard of the Azores … At least during a weather report. 😉
AIndeed, an anticyclone is covering the Azores. It acts like a barrier and prevents precipitation to come to West Europe.
However, this is synonymous of heavy rains and strong winds to the Azorean population.
It took me a few minutes after getting out of the plane to realize that water is omnipresent in the Azores.
Rain, coulees, Hot springs getting out from nowhere, torrents, waterfalls … all in a small island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!
You see for yourself on the pictures that I have created, that water is everywhere !
Take a poncho!
