vintage and contemporary postcards and stamps from around the world

The Açores are roughly 1,400 km west of Lisbon, 1,500 km northwest of Morocco, and 1,930 km southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.

There is something a little unsettling to me about living on an island in the middle of the Atlantic.

I have lived in an island for more than five years, and I have spent one month in Azores years ago... I never found it unsettling. You cannot get bored in São Miguel!

My islands here.

Oh, it's not the possibility of boredom (I watched a travel documentary on each of the Azores islands last week that had me desperate to visit) It is the idea of being so far away from a greater land mass.

I think I might also have a feeling of isolation living in the middle of the Atlantic.
