This is our last post on WordPress. Over the last few years, we’ve engaged with you, our valuable supporters, in chronicling the buildup of minuvida – the soap opera so to say. It’s time to open a new chapter. From now on the news, announcements, happenings, adventures (in other words, everything that relates to the daily operation of our business) will reside in this new blog page on our website.
And we start the new blog with very exciting news: the launching of our new outdoors experiences business! minuvida azores experiences allows you to Feel the Azores through hiking, food and yoga – even if you are not staying with us. While the renovation and expansion of quinta minuvida orchard lodge is finally underway, we can focus on what we do best – help travelers Discover and Feel the Azores through these very curated experiences. So, take a spin of our website and find out what experiences you can sign up for right now.
Meet Snorkels, our badass off-road 4X4!
We can’t close this chapter without extending a special ‘thank you’ to our devoted followers. There are quite a few of you who have frequently reached out (whether by leaving comments or reaching out to us directly) and this forum enabled us to get 70 percent of our business during last year’s beta testing season.
It seems fitting we should share some previous posts highlighting this almost-four-year journey, leading us to where we are today:
- Our first post where the seed was planted!
- Why the Azores, on framing our early idea
- When things fell apart, a devastating loss causing us to start over from scratch (but that was a good thing!)
- Our initial “6-month” plan…
- Finding quinta minuvida, we had to buy the place before laying eyes on it, and we’re so glad we did!
- Our unbelievable first year
Just goes to show: you have to start somewhere.
We are now gearing up for the real grand-opening of quinta minuvida and will provide construction updates, experience updates, and many other tidbits of information in our new blog. Stay tuned!
Obrigado a todos! Thank you all!
