It´s almost 3 years ago that I first set foot on Cape Verde. Through my Boat HitchHiking trip, I found a boat that sailed from Tenerife via La Gomera to Cape Verde. I originally had planned to cross the Atlantic Ocean straight away. But as usual, life is what happens while we make plans.

That’s how I got to discover one of my favorite travel destinations so far: Cape Verde.

After spending 1 month on Tenerife looking to work as crew on a sailing boat, I was over the moon when a young French couple called me to sail to Cape Verde. As I knew that many boats would sail from Cape Verde to the Caribbean, a sailing crossing to Cape Verde just sounded perfect to me.

That’s how I ended up discovering a country that never really was on my travel bucket list. Neither fitted my plans to cross the Atlantic Ocean by Boat HitchHiking.

But yes, I loved it from the first moment. “No Stress” is the mantra of Cape Verde archipelago and people welcomed me with open arms.

I already wrote several posts on the islands I visited: Sal, Sao Vicente, and Santo Antao. In 2018, I visited the more remote islands Maio, Fogo, and Brava.

Each of them is so different and adorable. Even though I haven’t visited even half of the Capeverdean islands, I know that Cape Verde and its people will always have a special place in my heart.
