Madeira, “Ilha Jardim” (Garden Island) or “Pearl of the Atlantic”,one of the most beautiful destinations in Europe. I fell in love with this small island the first time I visited. It was just me and my husband then; I was totally blown away with its scenery – simply beautiful! This time round, we visited the family with our 2 kids.
My husband’s parents grew up in this island, but they moved to South Africa for better opportunities when they were young. So, in this visit they flew to Madeira to meet us and spend some quality time with the rest of the family. It was indeed an unforgettable trip. We’re glad the kids met their Portuguese family.
