Summer Travels to the Old Country

Hello Brock Center blog followers!

Amanda Meneses here, one of the newest Ag Circle magazine associate editors.

As you all will soon come to learn, I have a small (yet significant) obsession with Starbucks. Needless to say it was difficult to say goodbye for five weeks.


Every other summer I have the tremendous opportunity to spend 4-5 weeks on the island of Terceira. Terceira is in the archipelago known as the Azores, off the coast of Portugal. My family and I come to visit my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and incredible amounts of cousins (but really, I think I meet a new cousin every time I come here) So after my last Venti iced coffee with soy and three pumps of caramel syrup, I was off on a nine hour flight to the Azores.

I wanted to share with all of you some photos I’ve taken so far, of this little island I love so much. Enjoy…and until next time!

My grandparent’s home, the house that my family is staying at during our trip!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summers! Until next time…
