Madeira in Pictures

Madeira sunset

I have written so many blog posts about Madeira that there's probably not much more I can say about it.

And that's why I decided to make this post more about pictures. These photographs represent a few fleeting moments of one week. But they also illustrate the reasons why I keep going back to this beautiful little island, year after year.

There are the lovely sunsets seen from the hotel room balcony:

The impressive scenery, even right in the centre of the capital, Funchal:

Aren't these flowers fascinating?

Whenever I think of Madeira, I remember these flowers. I never get tired of seeing them. And they're literally everywhere on the island: in parks, by the sea, up on the mountains... That's probably why I keep taking photos of them...

And then there's the urban wildlife:

And let's not forget the mild weather: not too hot but warm enough to give us Northern Europeans a little break from winter.

Yes, I'll be back....

    1. Yes, flower island. And there are so many different types of flowers, even in winter. But I love these funny orange flowers, they're everywhere. Whenever I see them, I think of Madeira.
