Article By: Martin Myers-Allen – Former Headmaster, Framlingham College Prep School


Mother Nature has created a land full of natural beauty, ready to be explored, in the blue immensity of the Atlantic Ocean: the Azores. Therefore, and with great enthusiasm ex-Headmaster, Mr Martin Myers-Allen and ex-Deputy Head, Mr Robin Sampson led an expedition of 13 girls and 2 boys to this amazing volcanic archipelago accompanied by a couple of parents, Dr Sue Hopton and Mrs Fiona Johnson and Far Frontiers Leader, Jade Bielski.

Their destination was São Miguel, the largest island, and especially seductive with its Sete Cidades and Fogo Lagoons, tea plantations, pineapple farms, underground caverns and whale watching opportunities. As the group explored the island they were constantly aware of the power that emanates from the earth which was felt in the geysers, hot thermal waters and volcanic lakes, as well as in the tasty “Cozido das Furnas” that are cooked inside the earth. During the trip the young expeditioners took it in turns to help lead and manage the trip and returned safe and well with fantastic memories to share.
