In April 2014 I went to Madeira for a week with my dad. He's keen on mountain walking, so that's what we spent the week doing. He walks pretty fast (especially for being 70), but I had photography as an excuse to slow the pace down.
Madeira is an incredibly beautiful place, and I'm definitely going back sometime, possibly on my own to just do photography. That way I can bring a tripod, stay in one spot for a while, and do sunrises and sunsets without having to consider someone else's schedule.
