Blast from the past: Madeira

Nine years ago we visited Madeira for the first time. As we are planning another hiking trip on Madeira , I went through the old photos and other recordings to find out where we have been. I also used the opportunity to post some pictures which appear to be taken with my first 6MP DSLR. Back then, times were simple (we were savages!) and I had no GPS tracker or smart phone with tracker app. For this reason, the photos are not geo tagged.

Locals use wooden sledges to slide down the steep hills as a tourist attraction.

Ponta de São Lourenço

Interestingly, lizards are pretty fond of canned Bavarian Leberkäse.
