They say money can’t buy happiness — but it can buy amazing Groupon deals that get you a 7-day stay and round-trip flight to the Azores!!! And… that makes me very happy. 😉 I adore traveling — it is the one thing I allow myself to “splurge” on, and it’s always worth it. Research shows that spending your money on experiences rather than material things can have a much more profound affect on your happiness!
I write to you feeling slightly sleep-deprived but incredibly blessed to have arrived today in Ponta Delgada, the capital of São Miguel, which is the largest of the group of Portuguese islands known as the Azores that pepper the middle of the Atlantic ocean. My very good friend and travel companion Katie and I are making our second visit to Portugal this week and could not be more excited.
