Changes

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. Big thanks for this song for Karine Gonçalves.) As a foreigner, it’s not easy to find a home for rent on Madeira island. It took me 5 weeks to get the tiny house where I settled finally. True though, that I’ve got it in a package, along […]

Slow motion

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. This time big thanks to Laci Plattner for the music recommendation. Come to Madeira!) Ocean on my left-hand side, mountain on the right-hand side.
