THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4 — FUNCHAL, MADEIRA: 9am – 4:30pm

Portuguese culture, diverse floral life, seascapes, and food and wine endear Madeira to visitors (Including Winston Churchill, who visited Madeira to paint). Take a closer look, and you encounter an ecosystem now unique to this region of the Atlantic — the laurel forest, a relic of the vegetation which covered southern Europe millions of years ago.
