Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

Voyage, Voyage...

My advice is: on this trip, focus on the luminous slideshow and not on the video clip supplied below it - but all the while listening to the song it does provide (the clip, that is - duh!)
For best results, resize your browser window, if need be, to avoid the oddities of said video - and see only the splendors of the nine islands that comprise the archipelago of the Açores ("Azores" for inane tourists only!)
There are plenty of oddities there though - just like there are everywhere else! I have seen them all - in the Açores, in Europe, in North America, South America - these oddities that I am alluding to are all over the place! Clue: they are NOT the "proud" kind... hint, hint! As a wordsmith once said; "nuff said".
Now, since these oddities are everywhere, we might as well pick the sunniest spot; where the weather is not so hard on you, all year through! And that would be on island such as these: the Canaries, Mediterranean isles... and the Açores!
Oh - and visit this link here:

Thank you and enjoy your journey!

Extra luminous data: The Portugal flag was officially adopted on June 30, 1911.
This historic flag is symbolic of epic Portuguese voyages that would make them the first to discover the ocean routes to India, Brazil, China and Japan, and at the same time establish settlements on the east and west coasts of Africa.
Green is representative of King Henry the Navigator, a famed Portuguese explorer. The centered shield is representative of ocean exploration and the expansion of Portugal's influence during the reign of King Afonso Henriques. Red recalls the internal revolution of the early 1800s.
