Oh Beautiful Madeira

Afternoon Blogging world!

In 2016, despite what my lovely line manager thinks I didn’t take all of my holiday allowance. Now in the grand scheme of things this wasn’t a massive issue because I like to think I’m quite savvy with the days I do have and I did spend 3 weeks getting married and on our honeymoon. So this year I decided I would make the most of every day that I have.

When the oppertunity came up to attend our friends wedding in Madeira, Portugal we jumped at the chance. Mr and Mrs Willetts FIRST wedding as Mr and Mrs Willetts. I’m sure the first of many but it’s all pretty exciting!

So this weekend we packed our bags and headed for the tiny island just off the coast of Morocco. We stayed in the Forum Apartment which can be found HERE. The apartment was modern, clean and set in the heart of Madeira so everything was easily accessible (good find Mr Willetts).

Now I must say the island is breathtaking, the people are so relaxed and friendly and the food is incredible! I’m almost certain I must have put on half a stone.

The wedding was set in a beautiful church on the top of a mountain and we later spent the evening dancing and eating at a lovely hotel along the coast. There are some small slight differences between a Portuguese wedding and an English wedding but it’s always fun to experience new things!

Mr Willetts and I were truly honoured to be invited even if Mr Willetts was upset he had to wear a suit jacket and a tie (his least favourite outfit). We even managed to squeeze in a Baptism of a friends son on the Sunday before flying home.

If you ever get the chance to visit Madeira I would highly recommend it even if it’s just for the beautiful scenery and the brand new sculpture of Ronaldo’s head… which we did actually miss but I’m sure we’ll be returning just and will check it out!

March and April are turning out to be pretty busy month’s for Mr Willetts and I… I think we’ll both be glad for our Holiday in May so we can sit back and relax…
