Happy Sabbath from Madeira

Happy Sabbath from Madeira.

I haven’t blogged since last month – it’s been a bit of a hiatus and that is because there has been no time to blog during this crazy week. I really need to go back and fill in the blanks since Lourdes.

At lunch today Marcus asked me why I hadn’t blogged about Madeira.

I told him I didn’t like it.

I lied.

So here it is Marcus!!!

This place is incredible. The landscape is stunningly diverse. The mountains feel like the Himalayas (summits more like Aussie alpine), the small fishing village up the road looks like something from the Greek Isles and the weather feels kinda like Hawaii. There are no level roads in Funchal, except for the freeway to the airport. You either go up or down the side of the mountain and the roads are steep and narrow.

My photos are going to be a bit ordinary so you need to watch out for my blogging sister… hint hint Fan!

We’ve had a fun time in Madeira, (that’s a bit of an understatement really) and no doubt we’ll come back and do some more walking and exploring in a few years with Marcus and Vanessa.
