Madeira 2: The western part

In the western part of Madeira, near Ponta do Pargo, we hiked to our first levada, the Levada Nova. It runs here through a eucalyptus forest, which is not part of the indigenous flora of Madeira and is, to be honest, a bit dull. But the coastal views were lovely!

Self-care day

I’ve been pushing myself, teaching 3 courses and two tutorials over the past weeks. This week I was feeling under the weather with a cold but was able to still do my classes. So today it’s time for self-care: a nice hike in the morning with plenty of photo opportunities!
