24 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Madeira Island
Madeira Island is Europe’s hidden gem you simply have to visit. During our road trip we hiked through the clouds, tasted some of the best liquor and walked many colourful gardens. The best part? Although we headed there during the high-season, we had most places all to ourselves! I don’t believe it’s going to stay like this much longer, so hurry up and fly there while it’s still very authentic!
Here are some photos to help encourage you to purchase that plane ticket and explore one of the most beautiful islands.

Plans for the Second Half of 2017
It’s almost unbelievable half of 2017 is already over, isn’t it? My exams are behind (at least for now), which means I have more time to focus on my hobbies. These days I’m busy hosting couchsurfers, editing photos from Madeira (expect many blog posts) and doing some compulsive shopping online a.k.a. booking too many flights. So, what’s next?
You might recall Morocco has been on my travel goals list for more than 2 years now because it’s so different from anything I’ve experienced. I’m crazily excited for exotic performers, chaotic markets, 1000 years old historical sites and sandboarding. We are headed there in September. Bring it on! Read More

How Much Does One Week Road Trip in Madeira (Portugal) Cost?
It’s now been less than a month since we left Madeira island but I can’t stop daydreaming about it. I’ve never seen such diverse island before and if I could, I’d return in a heartbeat.
The best way to explore the island is by car and this is how we did it. Below you can find information on how much the whole trip cost us. Please note that I first write down the price we paid together and then calculate how much it was per person.
Rent for 7 days + half tank of fuel: €262
Parking: €3.90 (Funchal)
Expenses per person: €132.95
The car was supposed to be cheaper, but we went for the upgrade to Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the result was a higher price. It did work out quite well, I think. Madeira is very hilly so getting a good car is necessary. Read More
London From Above: The Sky Garden vs The Shard
In London, there are many possibilities to get an overview of the city – two of them being The Sky Garden and The Shard. Because they are only a bridge away from each other, the view is not that different. The majority of famous sights, such as the London Eye, Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral, are well-visible from both.
Although I’ve visited the capital city of the UK more times than I can count on fingers of both hands, I had never seen it from an observation deck before last November. When planning our trip last autumn, I was not quite sure what to expect from either the Sky Garden or the Shard. There were so many questions racing around in my head. Tripadvisor community seemed to cheer loudly for the Sky Garden, while photos looked more convincing from the Shard. So we did both. Read More
