Travel Memories 6: Madeira

Walking along Ponta de São Lourenço

While I lived in London (1989-99, 2004-09) I usually went away for Christmas. In 2007 I went to the island of Madeira, and while there I joined a guided walk along Ponta de São Lourenço, the easternmost point of the island. “Stunning” is an understatement! Rugged landscapes, sweeping views and weather very unlike London in December. It was an exhilarating day.

You can see the path of the walk in the feature photo; I’ve indicated the path with dots, and circled the people along one stretch. You can see a zoomed version of the stretch with people here. I don’t recall it feeling as dangerous as it looks!

Travel Memories: a single photo from a trip — one that always makes me smile, or reflect, or want to go back.
