Madeira

Up, around and under water

sunny 26 °C
View Madeira October 2008 on erodrigo's travel map.

There is enough to see on and around the island.

We visited the most eastern point, a very rugged and windy part of the island but because of the scenery of the water swept and carved rocks, very beautiful.
We went dolphin/whale watching. There were no whales to be seen on our tour but still we where lucky because we saw three kinds of dolphins; the spotted one, the bottlenose and the regular grey dolphin. They are such a fun sight to see as they jump out of the water in front of the boat and their speed is amazing.

We dove at the two breasts, yes I am sorry but that is how the dive sight is called and although this is no tropical water there where still a lot of beautiful fish.
The food on the island is wonderful and the roads inland to the various restaurants we visited are exciting.
The last two days I have been a bit handicapped. In my rush to be in time for the boat dive I( bumped my big toe against a stone and now it is broken.
Yes the island is beautiful, but you have to be carefull walking around ;-)
