Howdy, my name is Leandro Silva and I was born in São Miguel, Azores.
I love meeting people from around the globe and experiencing different cultures first-hand. Tourism and my travels around Europe have given me lots of opportunities to do just that, and I hope that I'll keep on meeting new and exciting people from all walks of life for many years to come!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Terceira and São Miguel are the islands I know best, especially the latter since I grew up here. But I'm confident that I'd be able to plan out a great trip in any of our 9 islands."
How did you get involved in travel?
"I've always loved interacting with foreigners and learning as much as I can about them. Naturally tourism felt like the perfect area for me to continue doing something I enjoyed, and a 5 year experience living abroad combined with knowledge of three different languages gave me an excellent opportunity to do so back home. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I once got lost at the Versailles Palace's garden. I tried to make my way back to the beaten pathway while holding up a map to my face. What followed was a very Charlie Chaplin-esk dive into the pond. Must have been a great show for anyone watching. Don't think I'll ever live that one down hehe..."

June Azores trip with 2 college kids · the Azores - Jun 1 - Jun 11, 2018
Great trip and experience. Loved it. Highly recommend. Azores offers a lot of cultural dynamics and activities, very accessible from Boston and at a very reasonable price. Great value. Also, close enough to consider long weekend excursions: Thursday night to Monday.
