On a sunny Saturday Erykah, Zeynep and me came out on the road. First, we went to Funchal and from there we went to Ribeiro Frio. The weather in Funchal was really warm and sunny. Ribeiro Frio is rainy and a little cold.
We first started marching to go to Vereda dos Balcões. During our walk, we witnessed the diversity of plant species, the whispering of leaves, and the accompaniment of birds. The view we saw when we arrived at Balcões was spectacular. We enjoyed the scenery and of course, we took many pictures. Then we turned around and took a break to eat something hot. Our next stop was Portela. (Actually, we didn’t target Portela. We can say that the road took us there:))
We started a long walk. We passed under the waterfalls and through narrow walkways. It was a cliff right next to these walking paths. When I looked down I could see nature winked at us. It is possible to see every tone of green. Afterward, we passed through ponds and caves. I felt like myself in a fairy tale. I think I know its name. ” We are in the land of wonders.”
