Cape Verde

Someday we will visit Cape Verde or begin to dream about going there! However, for now its not on our radar. Let us know in the comments if you think that should change!

Cape Verde

Cape Verde (Portuguese: Cabo Verde, Kriolu: Kabu Verdi) is a country in West Africa. It comprises a group of islands of the Atlantic Ocean, west of Senegal. It is part of the region of islands collectively known as Macaronesia. The government declared in 2013 that its official name would not be translated into foreign languages and the country is now the Republic of Cabo Verde or simply Cabo Verde, although only time will tell if this change will enter common usage.
