    MADEIRA: 25 FONTES WATERFALL

    Madeira is known by numerous beautiful waterfalls, so in case you ever find yourself visiting the island, seeing at least one waterfall is a must! Tripadvisor is a good place to search info about different waterfall hikes and tours. You will find everything there, from hike duration , to difficulty, options for guided tours etc., so in case you don’t know which waterfall to choose, Tripadvisor is the answer. Visiting the “25 Fontes Waterfall” is one of the best memories I have from Madeira. It’s also one of the most known waterfalls in Madeira, therefore it can get really crowded there as well. Taking this into consideration, we intentionally chose…

    ROADTRIPPING AROUND THE ISLAND OF MADEIRA

    We did not change our sleeping locations, as some do, because the island is small and you can drive the entire island in just few hours. But, don’t let that “the island is small and you can drive the entire island in just few hours “ fool you when deciding how long your vacation in Madeira should be. We were there for 9 days and still left the island with feeling we could have extended for a few days. Such a small island and so saturated with amazing places to see. It’s like someone would collect the most amazing waterfalls, mountains and woods all together and place them on one…

    MADEIRA: TREKKING ALONG THE PONTA DE SÃO LOURENÇO PENINSULA.

    We have decided to go on this trekking after spending a few days in woods and mountains in the middle of the island. We figured a change of location would be a nice contrast to a foggy and windy heights. If this sounded as a complain over past few days, it was not! Far from it. If you know me at all, you know how much I love woods and I would probably choose foggy woods over a beach 9 times out of 10. Ponta de São Lourenço is situated on the very east point of the island. It’s a barren peninsula with cliffs, and the only way to see it…

    THOUGHTS ON 3 YEARS OF BLOGGING

    Wow it’s been a while . I haven’t written a blog post for over a month and that wasn’t the plan. But these things happen to bloggers, right? Wait, am I allowed to call myself a blogger already? WordPress has reminded and congradulated (haha) me for my 3rd blog anniversary! Holy shit, time flies! I have posted 81 blog posts, including this one (God knows I have written quite a few more, but never published them). I can say I am not the most consistent hobby blogger in the World, but hey, I am trying. The most important question is whether I still enjoy writing, sharing my thoughts, photos and…

    WHAT TRAVEL HAS TAUGHT ME SO FAR? (PART 2)

    I know this post should be up much sooner, but for the past few weeks I’ve been struggling to do everything before leaving on our next trip. And yet I haven’t been as efficient as I would like, because here I am, half a day before leaving and still working on a few things, instead of packing. Plus I still somehow found time to write this post haha. Continuing the “first part” here is the second part of the things I’ve learned during my years of traveling. Enjoy! 13. One, for me very important is – try to make the best of the situation. If something unexpected happens, be resourcefull…
