Not just for wrinklies - Funchal
Not just for wrinklies

Favorite thing: I always thought that Maderia was for the older generation, and the prospect of going made me think that I was getting old, rubbish she says, yes there are many fabulous gardens to sit in and watch the world go by, but there are plenty of shops, bars , cafes and even a casino, we went just after Christmas and the decorations were still up, they were great, its a must for any age, I cant wait to go back. Just one thing it is rather hilly, but not in the centre.

Fondest memory: Watching the Oriana dock..............WOW what a sight with its 14 decks it was awesome.
Also the live Nativity Scenes, with lambs and donkeys and lots of other animals, you just wouldnt get that in the UK Brilliant.
