Guide to: Madeira
My first impression upon landing in Madeira was that it was like rocking up at a small Caribbean airport. From the 1970s-style buses and yellow taxis to the grandiose Miramar cocktail bar opposite the famous Reid’s hotel, everything felt refreshingly old-school. The place I’d dreamed up in my mind really was every bit as I’d hoped it would be. Even amid the frenetic world of the 21st century, such a place really does still exist.
