Madeira Dreaming

Madeira, an archipelago of 4 islands, is an oasis within the Atlantic. Dramatic natural scenery, towering mountains and tropical forests, make it a special and unique place. Combine this with a people that are welcoming and hospitable, reflecting the laid back nature of the Portuguese -- who wouldn't be inspired?
