People of Madeira

Some of the photographs in this post you may have seen already in my travel journal of my trip to Madeira. However, I wanted to post a special about the people I’ve met on the road.

At first sight, the people of Madeira might not look very open or welcoming to strangers, but as soon as you start to interact with them, they change completely. They are really great people. All of them. Happy to help you if you happen to get lost. Unfortunately, not a lot of help if you don’t speak Portuguese.

After I took a picture of this old man while walking to Portella, he offered us avocados and homemade madeirian wine. He also played his guitar for us.
