A little background; Madeira is a Portuguese island off the coast of Morocco. The island Reminds me a little of Hawaii, but very different at the same time. Large mountains, spectacular climate, tremendous outdoor adventures, wine, excellent restaurants, and the cosmopolitan capital of Funchal.

Make sure you ride the wicker basket down the mountain, visit the market, take a foodie tour, play golf, go sailing, and whale and dolphin watch.

Now it’s time for wine tasting the world-famous Madeira wines from sweet to dry, red to white. I didn’t have a wine I wouldn’t buy again.

The climate is so comfortable; during my visit in mid-November, the weather was sunny and in the mid-70s during the day and the mid-60s at night.
I was in Madeira for a trade conference, and I have never felt so blessed to be invited to such a wonderful destination.

We stayed at the Stunning Savoy Palace for the conference, an excellent location with a fantastic pool and great ocean views, while some conference attendees were fortunate enough to have a pre-conference stay at the Grand Dame of Madeira, Reids Palace located oceanfront, featuring the Winston Churchill Suite.

We were treated to a fantastic Fireworks show, a small sample of one of the world's best New Years' celebration fireworks spectaculars.

The fantastic climate provides the ability to grow an incredible variety from Bananas to Passion fruit, Avocados to Papayas, melons, Kiwis, and so much more.

The ability of the island to be self-sufficient is impressive and inspiring.
