European Vacation Part 5

Sunday, March 04, 2018

Little did I know when the day began that this was to be a favourite stop on our European travels. Finishing, Madeira Island, Portugal...

We ascended the mount by cable car. Wow, those Mediterranean Sea & Atlantic views were incredible!

Here are LOOKING DOWN views!

So we get to the top & the way down is by STREET TOBOGGAN wooden sleds steered & driven by our Portuguese drivers....What a THRILL this was!!! 2 KMS. of pure adrenaline!


I LOVE exciting new experiences!

These were our drivers from behind!

We had HAIR raising mountain roads to get back to town but ALL were in EXCELLENT condition. Close your eyes & don't look down....

Back on the ship, we dined in the French Bistro for dinner. This was my favourite meal...

This appetizer was duck slices over asparagus & hollandaise sauce...

The main entree was Roasted Duck au Jus with Parisienne potatoes & Green Beans

Dessert was a cappucino & a caramelized apple tart with a walnut garnish

Night Night until tomorrow...
