The day you leave is always a little weird, as it usually consists of waiting to be able to travel, and the travelling itself is also more waiting.
We had definitely anticipated this, so we went out to our favourite beach at Praia dos Moinhos to spent the time waiting a little more comfortable.
We were not allowed a late checkout at our apartment, so we had to vacate it at noon. Our flight was scheduled for 6PM, so we had some time to kill.
The flight actually went really well again, except this time the plane felt a little more cramped than the previous one; most likely because it was operated by another company (likely with more seats and less legroom per seat). We landed around midnight in Amsterdam, but had to wait for what felt like an eternity for our stroller which was sent along as odd sized luggage. So after more than an hour of waiting (it was nearin 02:00 at that time’ we files a complaint for lost luggage at the baggage-handlers and headed home.
Luckily our stroller was found that night, and we were reunited with it the following day, so all ended well.
Bye bye Azores, you’ve been good to us. Maybe we check out the other islands next time? There’s nine in total, and we hear they are as nice as São Miguel!
