Blog > A photography journey from Ali's recent trip to Cape Verde

Ali, our Marketing Executive, shares some of his favourite photography from a recent whirlwind tour around four of Cape Verde's stunning islands.

It has been a few weeks now since I returned from my work trip to Cape Verde, and given the cold weather here in the UK, I find it difficult to stop my mind wandering back to those golden beaches and warm temperatures. 

Scrolling back through my trip photos is one way to satisfy my cravings for sunshine, but it's only making my feet feel extra itchy as I think about the potential of future trips to this stunning archipelago. I thought I'd share some of my favourite photos from each day I spent exploring the islands, with the hope that it may inspire a reader or two to embark on a Cape Verde holiday of their own in 2017.
