I’ll be totally honest with you, until a trip to Madeira was suggested to me a couple of months ago, I hadn’t heard too much about the Portuguese Island.
When I mentioned the upcoming trip to my parents, they agreed it was a place synonymous with the older generation or those who want a quiet holiday.
