I am visiting my grandson who is the Consulate for the State Dept. of US. While there, I would like to go to the Azores for 3-4 days, but I am completely in the dark about the best way to go about it. Any ideas would be appreciated. I will be going single as he is working, realize I need a car, and prefer B&B. Have traveled extensively throughout Europe for several years this way. Much thanks to Rick Steves.

raeda.wallentine, I just sent you a private message with the link to my guide.
Since I wrote the mentioned post (thank you Priscilla), the guide is now 88 pages! I wrote it because there is a great interest on this forum for Azores advice. I continually get multiple requests every week for the guide, and I respond to EVERY request with the link to access it. The link is to a google doc because the size of the file has become too large to email.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone else would like the link to the guide. Please type in the subject line: Azores
Have you considered writing a book? ;-)
Thank you Priscilla for asking. I have received great positive feedback from forum readers and asked by quite a few about actually publishing my guide. For now, I enjoy sharing what I know about the Azores here on this forum without writing it as a book. Once I finally visit all 9 islands, there may be enough content. I am still hoping (fingers crossed) that the Azores islands and Madeira eventually become included in the RS Portugal book.
