If like most Europeans, you’re spending cold winter days dreaming about balmy summer afternoons and pleasantly cool evenings, you might want to consider a trip to the Cape Verde Islands. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, this archipelago of twelve islands can be reached fairly quickly and cheaply from Spain, Portugal or the UK. The eastern, upper-wind islands, Sal and Boa Vista are oriented towards tourists, with sandy white beaches looking out over an azure sea.
