Welcome! I’m Katie, a travel writer who has been in the industry since I was 19 years old. On a whim, I booked a two-month trip to Madeira in 2023, seeking fresh air and mountains. I was hooked.

I found the internet lacked one single Madeira blog which could provide everything you need to travel Madeira. That’s why I created this blog.

Having spent nearly six months on the island, I want more people to have the tools they need to explore the island of Madeira out of the box – and I want to put underrated parts of Madeira on the map.

Please travel Madeira responsibly. When you visit this small island, pick up your litter, drink responsibly and be kind and courteous to the island’s residents. Support local businesses as much as possible.
