Madeira Photo Diary

As promised (I think?), here are a couple more photos from our trip to Madeira. I’m good busy these days – just spent the weekend in Sweden, writing about this adorable, little spa hotel, and Friday I’m off to Montenegro. Till then I have a couple of articles to write, some research to do, and a bunch of emails to answer. Before Montenegro, however, I will get around to posting...

Panoramic Fine Dining in Funchal

While on Madeira we were lucky to dine out in some pretty nice restaurants. Design Centre Nini Andrade Silva was one of them.

Postcard from The Algarve

Absolutely stunning views. When I arrived it was...
