Thought for the day….” Life will not give you anything better than you give it. Give life the best, and you get the best out of life”.
” If the going seems easy, then check if you are going backwards”.
Off to the islands of Madeira for the photo today. The islands are about 480km off the African coast in the Atlantic Ocean, but have an extremely pleasant year-round sub-tropical climate. Madeira was offically discovered by the Portuguese in 1419, and Portuguese is still the main language spoken there today. Today around 1 million tourists visit it each year, including by cruise ship. The photo here is of the main street in the capital, Funchal. Funchal has a population of about 111 000 people, and after Lisbon, is the richest part of Portugal.
