Funchal at Christmas so pretty
 
They decorate the whole island and folk groups walk around singing and dancing. Star Princess is in port today. So my funchal harbor cam and the princess webcam are staring at each other. I love that, here are the links. :D http://www.princess.com/bridgecams/index.html http://www.madeira-web.com/camera/cam-04.html

Kat I had to be the first one to respond to your post. I have allways wanted to spend new year's on Madeira, and now even more so. I am also happy when I see a beautiful place in Portugal.

This video clips is pretty long. But they are viewing the New Year's fireworks from a cruise ship. Csis and I were in Madeira Island for New Year's eve I have never seen fireworks that cool before. The whole island had them.

Manuel December 13th, 2007 07:57 PM

Kat you sure did a great job in putting up that video. Funchal's fireworks set a world record last new year's eve.Funchal is one of 3 places I want to spend new years eve on. The others are a cruiseship and Las Vegas since I'm doing the Carnival Liberty this year, I plan to do one of the others next uear.

Manuel
PS I can't begin to tell you how much I love your posts

Kat, when we were on Madiera on 11/4, I was up early enough to see the lights of the island from miles out at sea when we were approaching. It looked like a diamond bracelet on the water. Our tour guide said that as beautiful as that was, it is even more beautiful at Christmas when over half a million more lights were added! And dang it all, we were a month too soon to see it!

katlady December 14th, 2007 09:58 AM

The picture changed and this ones even prettier. Manuel I'm glad you like my posts. :D

Manuel December 14th, 2007 05:07 PM

you have NEVER seen fireworks until you have seen them on funchal portugal! i have never seen any since none that can even come close! that video was GOOD but didnt do it justice! we were on the roof of a hotel in downtown Funchal and it was AMAZING!

arkiegal December 15th, 2007 05:52 PM

DH & I, DD & SIL, DS& DIL are doing a NOLA barge cruise for this New Years Eve...... including fireworks on the mighty Mississippi! We can't wait!

Manuel December 15th, 2007 07:36 PM

Crazysis, I would haved loved to have gone to Madeira in the past, but raising 3 kids, and later a divorce got in the way. But I'm doing quite well now,and plan to go there soon.
If you or Kat could tell me the name of the hotel where you stayed I would appreciate it. Thanks

These is the listing for the Madeira directory I don't know what international information you would need to make the phone numbers work. My hubby has never been to Madeira Island this will be his first trip. :D
Arkiegal I love fireworks on the water so pretty I know you will have a great new year. :D

Manuel December 16th, 2007 11:57 AM

Thanks Kat, calling Madeira would not be a problem for me. What I wanted was getting a hotel where you can get a good view of the fireworks. Your husband is in the same situation as my wife, in that she has never been to Portugal, but she enjoys Portuguese food except for fish.
