PORTS OF CALL

■ MADEIRA: I loved Madeira. First on the list was to take a cable car to the Botan­i­cal gar­dens. It was an amaz­ing way to en­joy the views, but I wouldn’t rec­om­mend it if you’re afraid of heights. A must-do is the Wicker To­bog­gan Sled Ride. Ba­si­cally, you pay 30 eu­ros for two peo­ple to push you down a hill. It was quite the ad­ven­ture and if you’re not up for a wild ride, they’ll go nice and slow for you.

■ LA PALMA: We de­cided to just ex­plore the shops. Some great small cof­fee places here too.

■ GRAN CA­NARIA: We found lovely restau­rants by the wa­ter where we in­dulged in some lovely food and, of course, lo­cal wine.

■ LAN­ZAROTE: There wasn’t much we were in­ter­ested in see­ing here, hav­ing been be­fore, so again we en­joyed the de­lights of the lo­cal bars.

■ LIS­BON: This was my favourite spot. I ab­so­lutely loved this place, full of great shop­ping, gor­geous restau­rants and lots to do, I loved it so much, I’ve planned an­other trip there.
