    Favorite thing: Well the President is so nice that he allows the public to view his gardens. There are nice views over the harbour and also you can see the parrots he keeps in avaries amongst the tropical shrubs.

    Visit Funchal, Madeira

    Favorite thing: Visit Funchal, Madeira, called the Pearl of the Atlantic. As in all Portuguese cities, the tiled sidewalks are beautiful and unique. And do take a ride in the wicker basket.
