Sweet Surrender for Body and Mind – Madeira

Madeira, Portugal comprises of  4 islands off the northwest coast of Africa. It is known for its namesake wine and warm, subtropical climate. The main island is volcanic, green and rugged, with high cliffs that merge into an ocean of the deepest blue.  The region experiences a year-round spring climate, which provides an abundance of exotic fruit and the ocean surrenders superlative seafood.
