SO the sun is setting on our Maderian adventure and it’s time to say ‘até a próxima vez!’ – until next time!
We’ve had a great time with so many fantastic experiences and adventures. So many new experiences for us all. Me – driving on the left, Liam and Jed’s first father/son downhill biking adventure, and Miss Deni’s first horseback trail ride with Alex (our friend – not the horse!)
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the delicious Maderian cuisine and drunk far too much coffee.
We’ve replaced sandcastles with rock towers.
We’ve trekked through the most amazing terrain on our longest one yet …
And we’ve become familiar with the endless tunnels that span this little island …
* A funny little insight … in my home city of Perth we have one tunnel. I remember driving through it and thinking this is what it must feel like in Europe, I even used to go off route and drive the kids through it when they were little. So you can imagine my delight as we made our way through an actual European tunnel!
We’ve experienced a display of interesting, bright and sometimes funny door & wall art and fallen in love with the rugged coastline that takes your breath away.
We’ve made new friends and reconnected with old friends and we’ve spent precious time with our much-loved Grandad Gav, but our bags are packed and it’s time to say good-bye. Or as we like to say ‘seeya’ and a big BIG thank you.
And from here … ‘hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to the snow we go…….’
