Madeira Island – PortugalLike2

If you are a photographer, or like anything to do with photography, fascinated by islands and history, Madeira Island is where you need to book your next flight to. The towns, the people and the food, are so…photogenic.

How to get to Madeira Island – Portugal

A 90 minute flight from Lisbon and velada { Voila in Portuguese } you have reached with just 60$ ticket plane ride!

The area around Porto da Cruz in the North East. It has everything in terms of scenery. You would need to visit both the coastline and the surrounding mountains. The Island is filled with nature and the locals are so welcoming. Its a relaxing island where your taste buds will fire on every Portuguese home made dish!

You can even rent a scooter or a car { they are expensive though and you will need a license } and discover the Island but you wont go very far, one of the best way to discover the island is to use a tour company. You can hike on the mountains too, shop at street markets, dine at fine restaurants or even grab an “bolo do cacoon” on the road with the locals. You will find that the island is a peaceful one. You can really visit any time of the year. It is never too hot averaging a maximum of 24 °C during the summer months (July through to October) and a minimum of 17 °C. During the winter average temperatures drop by approximately 4 °C. You will simply fall in love. Stroll around Funchal and take in the atmosphere. Sit outside a pavement cafe and watch the world go by. A few days in maybe take an island tour or a boat trip…catch a bus and visit the Botanical Gardens… join a walk on the Levadas to give you a smell and flavor of the Forest.

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post 💕
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... 💕[Click link in bio to read the full article] 💕.
